Crooked Ladder Brewing Company will officially be welcomed into the North Fork brewing family when they open their tasting room on Thursday July 25 from 3 – 8 p.m. and Friday through Sunday from noon until 8 p.m.
On tap this weekend, Crooked Ladder will feature seven of their brews on tap. Among those included are Crooked Ladder’s crisp Summeritis, the well-balanced CLB Pale Ale, the sweet Gypsy Red, the fuller bodied Downtown Brown, the South Port Porter and the light and crisp Peconic Bay Pilsner.
Also as part of the opening weekend festivities the brewery will be offering free tastings, prize giveaways and a chance to check out the new facilities. People will also have a chance to meet the brewmaster and take a growler-to-go on the way out.
The company is a joint venture between David Wirth who designed and did all of the construction at the brewery, his brother Steve Wirth, owner of Digger O’Dell’s bar and restaurant in downtown Riverhead, and Duffy Griffiths, owner of Duffy’s Deli in Jamesport and Riverhead.
