The brewery offers a variety of year-round beers, and several seasonal brews, as well as a 'tasting room' which is open to the public on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays. The largest craft brewery on Long Island,  Blue Point is currently ranked #34 in the Top 50 Craft Breweries in the U.S. The brewery hosts an annual Cask Ale Festival, concerts and other events in the brew yard.
The brewery was founded in 1997 by Mark Burford and Pete Cotter, both avid home-brewers at the time. In regards to the decision to open up a brewery, Pete said: "Other parts of the country had local microbreweries and we saw an opportunity for a microbrewery to meet the demand in the market between Montauk and Manhattan."
On February 5, 2014, it was announced that Blue Point was being sold to Anheuser-Busch InBev for nearly $24 million. As of this time the brewery will continue to operate in its Patchogue, NY location.
