The trio from Rocky Point, Donavan Hall, Mike Voigt and Yuri Janssen at the North Shore Beach Property Owners Association Clubhouse in Rocky Point every year. Now licensed, the group can begin selling their beer to licensed retailers.
“It just took so long,” Hall told Corks, Caps and Taps. “They kept giving us so many problems that we thought for sure we’d never get it. It was kind of a shock when the license arrived.”
The RPAB are now Long Island's ninth commercial brewery. The "nano" brewery aims to stay small with a local focus. According to the report, the first release is likely to be Rocky Point Pilsner, a favorite at beer festivals.
