Location, Location, Location...
As most of you may already know, we have been searching for a new location since the space in Northport fell through earlier this year -- centering again on Western Suffolk and Eastern Nassau. We were tempted by spaces further East and West, but a suitable space may have been found in Western Suffolk, on the North Shore. We don't want to jinx anything and say just where until the lease (which is in hand) has been signed. If you happen to know where this is from a conversation with either Regina or me, please keep it under your best hat!
The above-mentioned space will be larger than our current operation, but still relatively small. There will, however, be a tasting and tap room. IF all goes well, we should be open by the Spring of 2015.
Over the last few months, we've had productive talks with Renaissance Downtowns, the company working with the Town of Huntington on revitalizing Huntington Station. We were not able to identify an existing building for a brewery, but a space in Huntington Station is still possible in about two years. This would entail new construction on New York Avenue, a short walk north of the LIRR Station.
The space mentioned in the first paragraph is not in Huntington Station. Hopefully we'll be able to report on a signed lease soon, and the exact location will then be publicized. That location will likely continue even if we establish a larger brewery in Huntington Station.
The regular Farmers' Market season is soon drawing to a close. This coming Saturday (November 22nd) will be the last market day in Northport, and Sunday the 23rd will be the last market day in Babylon. Each market runs 8 AM to 1 PM.
We have started selling bottles of our beer at the Riverhead Indoor Farmers' Market on Saturdays from 10 AM to 2 PM. Come on out to see us at 221 East Main Street, and then visit our friends at Long Ireland Beer Co. (817 Pulaski Street), Moustache Brewing Co. (400 Hallet Avenue), and Crooked Ladder Brewing Co. (70 West Main Street). Get your beer on in Riverhead!
A map of Long Island's breweries can be found at Long Island Craft Breweries. We look forward to adding our pin to that map soon!
