Long Island beer lovers and visitors to the North Fork, take note: Greenport Harbor Brewing Company has opened for business.
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.
