The Jamesport Farm Brewery held its grand opening Saturday afternoon as dozens of people celebrated Long Island’s first “farm to pint” brewery.
“It’s turning out well,” said Anthony Caggiano, the co-owner of the brewery along with Melissa Daniels. “We really didn’t know what was going to happen, but I think just by the amount of people here, I think we’re doing OK.”
The opening day featured live music, outdoor games and a food truck from Christopher Michael Catering.(more…)
A former potato farm on Sound Avenue has been proposed as the site of Long Island’s first “farm to pint” brewery, with most ingredients used in the beer-making process to be grown on site.
The project, which has been dubbed Jamesport Farm Brewery and calls for the creation of a brewery and tasting room in an existing 3,200-square-foot barn, is located on 43 acres on the southern side of Sound Avenue, between Manor and Herricks lanes in Jamesport.
