Long Ireland Beer Update: Double IPA at Blackwells, Golf Tournament

Blackwells Restaurant at Great Rock Golf Club
141 Fairway Dr.
Wading River NY 11792
(631) 929 – 1800

Seven hopbombs descended upon Blackwells Restaurant at Great Rock Golf Club during “All Hopped Up: An IPA Experience at Blackwells Tap Room” on 4/20, but none who attended that Wednesday evening deemed it necessary to duck, or take cover.

Instead, people gulped the plenty pours of Blue Point Brewing Company Hoptical Illusion, Ithaca Beer Company Flower Power, Lake Placid Craft Brewing IPA, Saranac Imperial IPA, 21st Amendment Brewery Back In Black, Long Ireland Beer Company Double IPA, and Ithaca Beer Company Thirteen (a bitter-and-bold blend of Citra and Sorachi Ace and wheat; Super Neat’s evening favorite), and loved all the Humulus lupulus, man.

Long Ireland Beer Company, who attended the event and poured their Double IPA* (only its second appearance ever), teams once again with Blackwells during Long Island Craft Beer Week for “The Long Ireland Beer Company Open” on Friday, 5/20.

Phone Blackwells for reservations.
