Expect a destination for touring the North Fork’s largest brewery, sampling some of the region’s tastiest porter and now, a sit-down meal, when Greenport Harbor Brewing Co. completes its new addition this spring.

Four support trusses for the new structure were installed at the Peconic property on Wednesday, which co-owner John Liegey called a “pivotal moment” in the building’s construction. He and fellow owner Rich Vandenburgh expect the space, which they are calling a “brew pub,” to be open to the public by mid-spring.

“It’s going to have a very open floor plan,” said Liegey, adding that outdoor seating will be available in warmer months. “It’s going to be a great space. We want an open environment where people feel comfortable.” (more…)
