Where we’re from, the people are a different breed. New Yorkers want more than the status quo, they want you to skip the bullshit and give it to them straight. Yeah, we’ve got humble beginnings, but that’s just who we are. Hell, our founders tapped Blue Point’s very first keg in a parking lot.
At Blue Point, we brew beer that stands up to New York's standards. We know it’s good, they know it’s good, and if someone disagrees, fuck ‘em. We first and foremost brew beer that we want to drink. If there’s some leftover, we’ll sell it.
Just one sip of Blue Point beer and you’ll find yourself at the boatyard hanging with friends, brewers, and a few seagulls. That’s because after years of tireless brewing (but mostly drinking - don’t let our brewers tell you otherwise), Blue Point knows it takes a hometown brew to live up to New York standards. Our story all started with Toasted Lager, a two-time World Beer Cup medal-winning American Amber Lager. Today, Toasted Lager leads our innovative lineup proudly brewed with unique ingredients like local oysters, North Atlantic seaweed, and beach plums. Though our brewers never stop innovating, one thing has stayed true since 1998: Blue Point is pretty damn proud to brew beer in a boatyard for the people and place that inspire us every day.
New York has a long and rich history with oysters. In fact, when Henry Hudson arrived in what is now New York City in 1609, he found harbors abundant with nearly half the world’s oyster population. The most popular variety was the briny Bluepoint, discovered in the waters surrounding Blue Point, a small town on Long Island’s South Shore – and our namesake.
Back in the day, oysters and beer were the original pair and commonplace in local bars. Blue Point is bringing this tradition back in a way only we can.
