About Greenport Harbor Brewing Company:Greenport Harbor Brewing Company was established in 2009 by two long time friends John Liegey from NY and Rich Vandenburgh from Boston, who met in college and had to drink what beer they could afford in those days. As the years went on, the better the beer they consumed, the more they were consumed by it. Rich and John learned everything about beer; they tasted it, studied it, and brewed it – all in pursuits of one day starting their own brewery. Today they have two brewing locations on Carpenter Street in Greenport and a bottling plant, tasting room and brand new restaurant opening in early 2017 in Peconic, N.Y. You can find their beer in bottle and on-tap across Long Island, New York City, Upstate New York and Connecticut. Their brews have been featured in the Village Voice, Newsday, TimeOutNY, and the Wall Street Journal amongst others.
