This past weekend we went on the first stop of our brewery tour promoting our book Beer Lover’s New York. We spent Saturday afternoon at Long Ireland Beer Company in Riverhead, NY, on Long Island. Had some great beers and good beery conversation.
Long Ireland was started by Dan Burke and Greg Martin in 2009. They interned at New England Brewing Company before venturing out on their own, first contracting at New England and then Olde Saratoga. An expansion in 2010 allowed the pair to start brewing in their Riverhead location. Popular brews include the Celtic Ale, Breakfast Stout and a Pumpkin Ale made each fall with fresh pumpkins.
Big thanks to Greg and Dan for helping us with a successful book signing!
