LI Nightlife: February Red Zone

Waterzooi Belgian Bistro
(516) 877-2177, Garden City

Behemoth selection of over 130 Lambics, Trappists, Saisons and more. Belgian
Beer Dinner every Monday night (3 course dinner paired with 3 beers) for only $35.

CANZ Restaurant & Bar
(516) 227-2269, Westbury

French style green beans or whole kernel corn isn’t quite their definition of “canned goodz,” but we promise Porkslap Pale Ale (or any other from their canned brew
arsenal) is more nutritious than any vegetable.

Plattduetsche Park Restaurant and Bar
(516) 354-3131, Franklin Square

The biergarten is closed right now, but so what? Ever hear the term
“preseason?” It’s never too early to start preparing your liver for Cannstatter
Volksfest and Oktoberfest.

Fadeley’s Pub
(631) 758-8882, Patchogue

Look for the house with the neon beer signs in its windows. Seriously. Quirky pub/music venue with excellent beer that often flies under the radar in Patchogue. Don’t let it.

Elijah Churchill’s Public House
(631) 261-9678, Fort Salonga

Named after the first recipient of the Purple Heart Medal in American history. What better way to honor his legacy than by visiting for dinner and some drinks?

Southampton Publick House
(631) 283-2800, Southampton

What else can be said about Southampton Ales and Lagers that hasn’t been said before? That’s right. Nothing. Wait. Let me try: If microbrewery restaurants also happened to moonlight as Transformers, then Southampton Publick House would be the almighty Optimus Prime. That works.
