It's not so rare to end up finding a gift for yourself when you're actually searching for a present for a friend. But for Gabe Haim, the gift he stumbled across was a home brewing kit that served as the cornerstone for a future business. As a beer lover, he was thrilled at the prospect of crafting his own brews. And just like that, Oyster Bay Brewing Company was born. With the help of his friend and partner, Ryan, the two guys embarked upon their beer-brewing journey with a feverish passion. Today, they craft a handful of beers at their microbrewery, offering tastings in-house or from taps around town. The brews range from the hoppy imperial IPA to the wheat ale, a summer sip best enjoyed with both feet in a kiddie pool.
