You might have noticed the phrase “Why the hell not?” on the side of our bottles and cans. That phrase has come to symbolize a spirit we’ve had since day one, when we set out to do something that on paper might not have made total sense to those around us: To start brewing beer on some gorgeous wooded property down a quiet road in Lakewood, NY.
It has come to symbolize the determination of our team, and, greater still, an attitude that this rolling countryside in western New York has always held dear. It’s equal parts hard work ethic and willingness to challenge convention, while putting our minds (and our backs) into doing what we believe is the right way to do things.
Since our humble beginnings, Southern Tier Brewing Company has grown into an industry leader. And while our growing fan base relies on our many tried and true originals, they also welcome the new flavors we’re always dreaming up and pouring in our taprooms. After all, why the hell not?
THE NAME SAND CITY BREWING CO. IS A TRIBUTE TO THE INDUSTRIAL ERA OF NORTHPORT. IN THE LATE 1800'S AND EARLY 1900'S NORTHPORT WAS HOME TO A NUMBER OF SAND MINES. THE MOST NOTABLE WAS STEERS SAND & GRAVEL, WHO NAMED PART OF NORTHPORT "SAND CITY."
THE SAND MINED AT "SAND CITY" WAS BROUGHT TO MANHATTAN TO CONSTRUCT ITS STREETS, BRIDGES, AND BUILDINGS.
THEY TOOK SOMETHING INFINITESIMALLY SMALL AND BUILT GREATNESS.
BUILD GREAT THINGS. DRINK GREAT BEER.
We intend to make uncompromisingly great beer founded on scientific principles and a love for drinking craft beer. We will brew what we love to drink and share this with you. Our beer recipes were tested through countless iterations and currently reflect our state-of-the science brewing knowledge. We would like to provide our local community with the freshest and most delicious beer by working with local producers of fresh ingredients when possible. We believe this is essential in achieving an equilibrium between local supply and demand, which is where we hope this beer business will finally land when the dust settles.
Founded in 2011, Finback Brewery is born from a passion for brewing and experimentation. After a long search combing through back streets, along canals, under bridges and industrial no-mans lands, braving collapsing roofs and cardboard box jungles the brewery found a space in Queens in 2013. Armed with a 20 barrel brewhouse, Finback released its first beers brewed in Queens in January 2014. The brewery is proud to call Queens home and become a part of the diverse and rich culture of the borough. We’re excited to be one of NYC’s newest breweries and to make NYC culture even better.
Currently, we self distribute all our beers to the greater NYC area in draft format only. So, go to your local bars and let them know you want some Finback!
One of the best things that happened when we moved to Elmsford was the ability to increase the size of the tasting room – more than triple the space of our Pleasantville location! The new tasting room boasts a 30ft long oak bar, two twelve-tap towers, and an endlessly rotating list of draft beers to sample and take home. Whether you’re sitting at one of our indoor picnic benches or using an old wooden barrel, there is plenty of room to stretch out and relax with a beer. The large windows lining the length of the room provide an abundance of natural light, and ceiling height glass doors allow a great view into the production facility, to take in all the action on the bottling line.
Grimm Artisanal Ales is a Brooklyn-based brewery founded in 2013 by Joe and Lauren Grimm after nearly a decade of tinkering with fermentation. Grimm specializes in concise, elegant ales epitomizing the creative, experimental spirit of the American artisanal beer revolution. With each limited edition release, we seek to push the boundaries of style and flavor in order to create beers with the utmost depth and complexity.
For five years, Grimm operated as a nomadic brewery. Joe and Lauren would develop each recipe in the kitchen of their Gowanus apartment and travel to existing breweries near and far to craft their commercial beers.
In June 2018, they opened their permanent location in the East Williamsburg neighborhood of Brooklyn, NY.
SingleCut Beersmiths was founded by Queens/NYC born, music-obsessed brewer Rich Buceta, whose life-long passions led to a place where hops and vinyl could shine side by side. After years of homebrewing and professional stints around NYC, Rich was true to his dream, diving headfirst into the brewing world. “My obsession is creating original hop-driven beer; distinguished by a firm respect and admiration for West Coast pioneers, and bending that to our East Coast / NYC interpretation.” Since opening in 2012, and with the help of an equally talented and devoted team, SingleCut has gained a loyal following throughout the East-Coast’s most respected markets. With his steadfast determination for the perfect pint, Rich penned "Mastery Knows No Shortcut" as the SingleCut mission statement. “It boils down to always demanding greatness, never compromising, and always play it at maximum volume.”
All good intentions to disturb, disorder and enlighten you with unforgettable beer after beer.

A clever man once said: 'Stay thirsty... stay foolish.' That sounds like our vision, just with a tad less attitude.
In 2014, Sam Richardson, Matt Monahan, and Andrew Burman founded Other Half Brewing Company, a local brewery in New York City with a simple mission: to create beers that they wanted to drink from a company that they wanted to be a part of.
Their vision was to build a passionate team that brewed great beers in the state of New York—done so with effort and thoughtfulness—to represent the “Other Half” of the industry.
Today, the Other Half team crafts beers in their Brooklyn brewery. They’re dedicated to collaborating with breweries both in New York as well as across the world in an effort to constantly move the industry forward while elevating the craft.
The Other Half team believes that local breweries play an important role in their communities which is why they partner with these other likeminded brewers and brands in local nabes across the country and the world—but always return to their home state of New York and their Brooklyn taproom.
The Bay we’re talking about is the Great South Bay, 151 square miles of shallow saltwater heaven stretching to the horizon off the south shore of Long Island, New York.
Protected by barrier islands (OK, so technically it’s a lagoon), the Bay is perfectly calm most days, making it a perfect home for 85 species of fish and countless species of fun – from boating to bathing to sport fishing to just leaning back and taking in the gloriousness of it all.
Here, the focus is on quality of life, quality of friends, and quality of pretty much everything else – that’s the Bay Way. Whatever we are doing, we put in the thought, time and toil to do it right.

Lake Ontario is similar to Lake Erie in length and breadth (193 miles by 53 miles). Yet with its greater average depth (approximately 283 feet), Lake Ontario holds almost four times the volume (393 cubic miles) and has a retention time of about 6 years. The drainage basin covers parts of Ontario and New York, and a small portion of Pennsylvania. Major urban industrial centers, such as Hamilton and Toronto, are located on its shore. The U.S. shore is less urbanized and is not intensively farmed.

The new Board of Directors has embarked on a massive restoration and renovation program at Brotherhood that includes equipment upgrades, vineyard acquisitions, the planting of new vines and a facility remodeling, highlighting the partners’ commitment to improving quality.
