Long Island’s microbrewers are joining forces to help save one of their own, Oceanside-based Barrier Brewing Company, which was destroyed by Superstorm Sandy.

“We thought our name would provide enough protection,” they joked on their Facebook page, trying to keep spirits high.The brewery will be closed for the foreseeable future while repairs are made.

What better way to give back than raising a pint glass at the all-you-can-drink fundraiser benefitting Barrier’s comeback?

LI brewers are also collaborating on a special one-time-only brew just for the occasion.

The event is scheduled for 1-5 p.m. Sunday at Tap and Barrel, 558 Smithtown Bypass. $50 for all you can drink.
