Brewery Notes

Located in Southampton, NY, the Southampton Publick House is a landmark for beer. Since the 1800s, beer has been created and served in the Publick House’s previous incarnations as a speakeasy, watering hole and restaurant.

During Prohibition, on the site where Southampton Publick House stands today, the original proprietors operated a proper restaurant while hiding a speakeasy in the back that served smuggled spirits and beer. Thirsty restaurant patrons would disappear for a short while, typically returning with a much rosier disposition.
Over the years, legendary figures of the 1920s like Babe Ruth, Clark Gable and Gary Cooper mixed right in with the regulars. This was a place where everyone got top billing, so these three luminaries were just “some of the guys,” sharing stories and a common passion for finding a tasty, quality brew.

After this long and storied history, Don Sullivan bought the historic building with the goal of adding a brewery to honor the rich beer tradition of the owners and patrons who came before him. The Southampton Publick House was reborn in 1996 and began serving great food and superior quality craft brews in a warm and welcoming atmosphere.
