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.

Hailing from the West Coast, House Beer is about to become a household name for its simple, crisp lager. We chatted with Founder Brendan Sindell (pictured right) to find out more about this new craft brewery.
This is a blend of Old & New School hops that play bright citrus and rich tropical flavors, all on a solid stage of English puffed wheat. Light, yet full-bodied… The “12th of Never Ale” is everything we’ve learned about making hop-forward beer expressed in a moderate voice. Pale, cold, slightly alcoholic, and bitter. It’s all we know.
Unfiltered Saison Reserve Cider combines our Farmhouse recipe with a rare strand of Belgian Saison yeast to create a complex aromatic palate of mild fruit flavors with just the right amount of spices. Enjoy the earthy undertones, moderate tartness and semi-dry sweetness in this perfectly balanced Saison Reserve.
Unfiltered Premium Farmhouse cider is a French Style Cider fermented with a champagne yeast. This cider delivers an effervescent apple bouquet upfront, tart notes in the middle, and a smooth, dry finish.
