Over a year after my visit to Moustache Brewing Co. for the NYCR, Matt and Lauri Spitz are ready to open their doors to the public. It may seem like a long time to wait for beer, but alas, the tired and thirsty masses will be quenched this Saturday. After years of toiling with permits, renovations and working full-time jobs, the undertaking of the Spitzs is about to pay off.
Tomorrow, April 19 from 1-6 p.m. , Moustache will be offering growlers, half growlers, pints, and short pours of their One Drop Pale Ale, Everyman’s Porter, and Milk & Honey Brown Ale. In addition to the libations, Matt’s rally beard will be shaved (I assume leaving a burly moustache)in a fancy old barber chair, and the first pint poured will be auctioned off to benefit Kent Animal Shelter in Calverton. The couple expects to eventually sell out of beer even though Lauri says “We’re in zombie mode right now” , trying to pump out as much delicious beer as their small system will allow.
After this weekend, they will be open 1 – 6 p.m. every Saturday to the public, and may even try to open a Monday or two throughout the month. There will also be a town ribbon cutting ceremony on Monday, April 28 at 4 p.m. Get down and show some support until the taps run dry.
