Blind Bat Brewery's Long Island Potato Stout has won Long Island Beer of the Year honors in the third annual online Craft Beer Week poll.

The "Golden Tap Awards" honoree Blind Bat is headquartered in Centerport but expects to relocate to Farmingdale later this year.

The winner for best new beer was Great South Bay Brewery's Blood Orange Pale Ale. The brewery is in Bay Shore.

More than 1,000 beer fans participated in the poll, which named T.J. Finley's of Bay Shore the best beer bar in Suffolk; and The Good Life in Massapequa Park the top spot in Nassau.

The awards event was sponsored by Long Island Beer and Malt Enthusiasts, and produced by Starfish Junction Productions.
