Recognized for fine food and beer, the BrickHouse Brewery is also known for the history behind it. The BrickHouse Brewery building is the oldest commercial building in Patchogue and stands at the corner of Havens Avenue and Main Street. The BrickHouse Brewery has a front-of-house staff consisting of 35 employees who maintain one full service bar, open daily, and a second, smaller bar located on their upper level that is available on the weekends for private parties. The brewery offers five original beers on tap, two additional drafts and two-bottled guest beer. At first glance inside the brewery, it’s hard to miss the mugs hanging around the bar. For just $35/year regulars can join the BrickHouse Brewery “Mug Club” and get their very own engraved mug; the perk: pay for a pint and receive almost double for your money. The best quality of the BrickHouse Brewery is that they offer live entertainment every night except Mondays; Tuesdays are open mic nights, Wednesdays are jam band sessions, patrons can sing their hearts out on karaoke Thursdays and varying artists perform on the weekends. You may ask, where do they find the musicians they book? They accept demos on a rolling submission and though some of the performers are considered resident, they are always looking for raw talent. So though you are sure to be entertained if stopping by the BrickHouse for a brew, be prepared for standing room only. There are only seven tables that surround the bar.

Pros: Live entertainment six nights out of the week.

Cons: Limited seating available.
