Enjoy the Summer on Long Island!

Beautiful Long Island Park

There are so many great things about the summer here on Long Island. To start we have beautiful warm weather from June through September. Surrounded by water, there’s the stunning Atlantic Ocean on the south shore and the cool Long Island sound on the north shore. Long Island also has many charming local villages that feature eclectic “main streets” that offer so many shopping, dining and strolling options. From end to end, Long Island is a great place to enjoy the summer months, whether it’s on the beach, in your backyard or at your favorite local restaurant or bar – enjoying terrific and fresh summer foods and of course some great summer beers and cocktails.

Recently revitalized, you can add Patchogue to the list of great places to visit on Long Island! Patchogue village is bustling with many quant shops, galleries, restaurants, pubs and live performances at the Patchogue Theater for the Performing Arts. A great way to spend a summer afternoon, this south shore village has so much to offer. Whether you spend the day strolling through the village and browsing at the eclectic and artisan shops or decide to stop in after day at the beach at Smith Point Park, you can enjoy a refreshing cocktail, some satisfying appetizers, or a delicious dinner at one of the many great restaurants and bars in the village.

However you spend your summer days on Long Island, if you end up in Patchogue village – you will definitely find lots of options for lunch, drinks and dinner! If you are in the mood for some authentic German food and some great German beer, you must make a stop at Bierhaus in Patchogue Village. Located right on Main Street, Bierhaus features a large menu of the most delicious and classic German dishes. For an appetizer, you can feast on some delicious mussels cooked in Dunkel bier or a huge Bavarian pretzel accompanied by spicy mustard and bier cheese. Their dinner menu also boasts all of the German favorites including Sauerbraten, Jagerschnitzel, Wienerschnitzel, and Wurst platters featuring the best German sausages. Their menu also offers classic and delicious steak, pork, fish and chicken dishes.

Now let’s get to the beer! First of all, we should mention that Bierhaus offers “Happy Hour” from Monday through Friday from 3:00 pm to 7:00 pm. This awesome happy hour features discounted appetizers, meals and great drink specials! Stop in for a $5.00 half liter of Hofbrau beer or enjoy a chilled glass of wine or cocktail.

At any time, choose from their extensive list of beers either on tap or in the bottle. Try a Sunner Kolsch, a light and crisp beer that is very smooth or a classic Schofferhofer Grapefruit Hefe Weizen, a light and unfiltered, fruity radler (sometimes referred to as a shandy). Another option is the traditional Hofbrau Premium Lager – an easy drinking, simple full flavored lager with a crisp finish. Many people love the Radeberger Pilsner, which is always smooth and refreshing.

So if you are out enjoying the last few weeks of summer on Long Island, be sure to visit downtown Patchogue village and stop into Bierhaus for cold beer, some great food and a fun and summery atmosphere!
