I moustache you a question. Want a new brewery on the East End?
Well, you’re in luck. The East End will indeed have another craft brewery, and soon! With funds secured via Kickstarter, Moustache Brewing Co. signed the lease for its new building in Riverhead on January 26.
Founded by home-brewers Lauri and Matthew Spitz (wearer of a lovely and competition-worthy, old-timey moustache), Moustache Brewing Co. will be a 15-barrel (BBL) microbrewery providing fresh, local, artisanal beers. They’re in the process of securing various permits to brew and to renovate the space, which will produce “craft beer for the craft beer drinker.”
Moustache’s beers are based on traditional brewing with a nod to the trends and uniquely changing future of craft beer. The year round brews will include a Porter, ESB and the Hop Trilogy, which includes the Pale Ale, IPA and the Imperial IPA. They will also feature a rotation of seasonal beers, plus whatever else strikes the brewers’ fancy (think Mojito Pale Ale and White Russian Stout). The brewery will be will open to the public for tastings, beer classes and growlers for purchase.
Help grow the Moustache and support this new local brewery! Keep your eye out for “Stache Bash,” their eventual grand opening celebration. Many of the brewery’s Kickstarter supporters already have tickets reserved, not to mention their cool “I helped grow a Moustache” T-shirts and hoodies. Moustache‘s cool swag should help keep some cash in their pockets as the operation gets underway. Check it out on their website, weregrowingamoustache.com, their (expired) Kickstarter page, or the find the Moustache Brewing Co. on Facebook.
