Call it pint-sized!

Long Island beer makers Blue Point Brewing plan to open a small brewpub below Seamore’s restaurant on Water Street in early August, a brewery bigwig told a community meeting Wednesday.

The artisan watering hole will host one of the company’s so-called innovation brewers, who will craft beers on site for up to 75 patrons who will fit into the snug 1,500 square-foot space. The establishment between Main and Dock streets will be open Wednesdays to Sundays, and might host classes for aspiring beeristas on Mondays and Tuesdays, its manager said.

“We’d love to do local collaboration brews and potentially do some classes for the community and we will be putting on draft the innovation brews we’ll be creating here,” said the Dumbo drinkery’s general manager Chris Chou at Community Board 2’s Health, Environment and Social Services Committee.

Seamore’s would serve food to the tiny tavern’s guests and the beer barons plan to have some musicians serenading guests, according to another hops honcho.

“Our goal is to bring in local musicians, but it wouldn’t be a full band, more just a guitar and music,” said Blue Point’s president Jenna Lally.

The committee passed its purely advisory recommendation for the State Liquor Authority to approve the brewery’s Kings County outpost.
