Long Island’s pubs and taverns have long offered thirsty patrons a variety of stouts, ales and lagers to choose from. Just how vast that variety is, however, can mean the difference between being crowned Best Beer Selection on Long Island and merely remaining a neighborhood haunt selling cans of Pabst from a warm cooler. Here are this year’s winners of Best Beer Selection on Long Island.
Long Islanders Voted Croxley Ale House Best Beer Selection on Long Island!
1. Croxley Ale House

The beer selection at Croxley’s is simply, in the vernacular of Charlie Sheen, “winning.” From Fruit Beer to Angry Ales to Ciders and their famous Craft Beer Club, this place has it all, including 40 bottled beers, 60 ales and lagers on draught and even beer cocktails like Apple Pie and Shanty. After all, their motto is “drink outside the box.” And this is definitely the place to do it.
