Christopher Schonberger, TimeOutNY Beer writer, on Greenport Harbor Brewing Company’s Summer Ale.
As in-state breweries continue to conquer New York City taps, one producer from Long Island is well worth keeping an eye for during the hot months. Only a year old, Greenport Harbor Brewing Co. makes an excellent Summer Ale that balances the beer drinker’s need for body and taste without going overboard on hops. Try it in Manhattan at Brinkley’s or in Brooklyn at Roberta’s, or just grab a growler from Bierkraft or the Whole Foods Beer Room. A summer beer that doesn’t suck is always worth celebrating.
