Take a walk down Main Street in Farmingdale and you’ll see plenty of familiar options for food, wine and craft beer. But there’s one (semi) new kid on the block. Lithology Brewing, once a tenant at a Taste of Long Island, now occupies the space at 211-A Main Street and they’ve been busy making it a home.
The last time we witnessed a Lithology brew day it was winter; they were brewing about once a week at a Taste of Long Island and had a couple taps going up front. Now, they’re the ones running the tasting room—and the brewery for that matter. They are following in the former host brewer’s footsteps and still operating as an alternating proprietorship. That means in addition to Lithology, Tweaking Frog and Flying Belgian also brew and serve there.
However, the space looks a little different as it has now been transformed into a full-fledged brewery tasting room. While you can stop by their home base to sample Lithology beer, they are also currently on tap at locations across Long Island—and sometimes into Brooklyn and Manhattan.
This summer look for them to return to local farmers markets. “We’re trying to partner with other small, local producers,” says Marc Jackson, one of four owners. Crossroads Farm in Malverne supplies them with organic honey as well as mugwort, squash and other ingredients for seasonal brews.
Lithology Brewing is typically open Thursday-Sunday and posts their weekly hours on Facebook.
