These are not suds for whimps; Greenport Harbor’s beer is very hoppy. But I especially loved the Summer Ale, which is light and fruity. Head Brewer DJ Swanson told me he injects honey into the summer brew after its filtered. That probably accounts for the slightly sweet taste. Other offerings include Harbor Ale, which is like an English pale ale, and a deep, rich IPA, with faint caramel notes.

You can bring your own growler or buy one at the brewery.

Prices:

  • Free tastes
  • Growler plus beer–$17
  • Growler refill–$12
  • Glases, 4 oz ($3.75) and pint ($6.00).

Hours: Friday-Sunday, noon to 5 p.m. While the Brewery isn’t officially open during the week, Swanson will fill up your growler if you stop by.
