Winston Churchill was famous for the high standards he applied to alcohol, quipping that "Liquor is quicker, but get me a single-malt scotch with moon rocks in it! I'm the English president!" Be like Ol' Winnie with today's Groupon: for $12, you get $25 worth of microbrews, soda, and more at Shoreline Beverage in Huntington. Stocking bottles and cans of everything from Double IPAs to Chocolate Bocks, Shoreline Beverage provides finely crafted creations from American breweries including the West Coast 21st Amendment, the Midwestern Two Brothers, and the classic downtown McSorley's, as well as international breweries including the Scottish Innis & Gunn. Shoreline also has an ever-changing list of microbrewery and macrobrewery beers on tap, ready and willing to be poured into empty growlers and eagerly cupped hands. Teetotalers can turn away from the beer and find joy in the glistening, bubbly jewels of Shoreline's soda and soft-drink selection. Besotted souls can ride the shining and magical LIRR to the expedient S1 bus, while all nontipplers can drive and be rewarded with ample parking.
