As you’ll see in the profile, Paul will be opening (once he gets his state license) what very well may be the smallest commercial brewery in the country. He’s calling it a nanobrewery because he will start making only one barrel per week.
I was lucky enough to meet Paul and his wife, Regina, at the LENNDEVOURS/canvas drink local event Saturday night. We spent quite a bit of time talking about the joys of state licensing, growing figs on Long Island and various other beer/wine/food endeavors.
This picture (courtesy of Alex Wolff) shows Matt O’Grady, associate publisher of canvas on the left with Long Island’s newest taste-making power couple. If you look not-so-closely, that’s me drinking wine over Matt’s right shoulder.
So why are they a taste-making power couple? Well, Regina is changing careers this year, moving from her job as a librarian to become an organic farmer at Sophia Garden in Amityville, NY.
Locally made beer and organic, local food. Worth keeping an eye on I think.
