October 19th Meet Your Maker w/ Greenport Harbor Brewing Company 5pm FREE/PUBLIC
Featuring 7 Greenport beers on tap, the guys at Greenport will choose a few of their local favorites from other breweries to round out the rest of the lines. Brewers and owners will be in attendance. Nibble on special menu items specifically chosen to complement these awesome beers. Greenport will bring samples of the hops they are growing at Wesnofske Farms in Peconic NY, and our hope is to introduce these hops into a sample of beer via Randalizer or a cruder french press method. Stick around to hear the guys talk about how they essentially built the brewery themselves, as well as their plans for expansion.
