We can’t forget our first squeeze of Tröegs Nugget Nectar. Lucky for all of us along the Hudson Valley, Adirondacks and Capital Region, it’s back! Nugget Nectar can be described as an “excessively dry hopped…explosion of pine, resin and mango”. You will want to get your hands on this fresh and hoppy Imperial Amber Ale. We can’t wait to get another squeeze of this once a year beer!
Bell's Brewery Hopslam Ale will be back again in New York towards the end of January! A double IPA brewed with honey and six different hop varieties.

Hopslam is only brewed once a year to ensure freshness, as well as excitement for this tasty beer! We can’t wait to put these on the shelves for everyone to enjoy!

John Liegey & Rich Vandenburg, Co-Founders of Greenport Harbor Brewing Company, gave us the story of their roots, a tour of their new brewery and a sneak peek of what's to come.
Where did the name for Greenport Harbor come from?
Our name comes from the harbor town where our original 15 barrel brewery resides. We love Greenport because despite the fact that it has become very popular with second homeowners and tourists, at its heart it is still a pretty badass boat building and fishing village.
Inspired by the 273-mile hiking trail that traverses through the Green Mountains, Long Trail Brewing has been a caretaker of Vermont craft since 1989. From small-batch recipes developed in our farmhouse turned pilot brewery to large-scale staples like our flagship Long Trail Ale, our brewers are committed to crafting a trail-worthy family of beers.
