CAPTAIN LAWRENCE BREWING COMPANY TO MOVE TO GREENBURGH!
Release Date: June 02, 2011
Greenburgh is an attractive place to do business in. We’re going to continue to work hard to attract quality new businesses to our town. I am very pleased to report that Captain Lawrence Brewing Company is planning to move to Greenburgh---444 Saw Mill River Road, Elmsford from Pleasantville. The following is from their memo to customers…
We will have some exciting additional economic development news to report very soon about other projects!
The new site at 444 Saw Mill River Rd, Elmsford, NY, which will occupy 18,250 sf with an additional 5000 sf available for expansion, has been designed to accommodate our growing needs as a brewery and as a destination for people wanting to taste fresh beer at its source. The new facility will house a 5 vessel, 40 bbl automated brew house which will have 5 times the capacity of the current location and will allow the company to begin packaging beers in 12 ounce bottles, something we have been dreaming of doing from keg one. In addition, we will be adding a 7 bbl experimental brew house which will allow us to create new and exciting beers on a regular basis, adding to the lineup of beers available in our tasting room and beyond. Our new tasting room will be approximately 1500 sf, 4 times the size of our current location and will incorporate a new draft system for serving beer and filling growlers and should provide a much more comfortable tasting experience.
It was always my dream, from the time I brewed my first batch of home brew, to open a brewery and bring fresh and exciting beers to the place I grew up; Westchester County. We have been extremely fortunate to have had the tremendous support of the Village and people of Pleasantville, our local neighbors, Westchester County, as well as beer drinkers throughout the NY Metro area and beyond. We did our best to stay in Pleasantville, looking at a number of potential sites, but unfortunately none of them fit our long term needs. We are looking forward to getting to know our new neighbors in Greenburgh.
We are hopeful we will have the Brewery up and running by late this year, and should be making the transition complete by year’s end. We will be sure to keep you all updated as the build out progresses and will be posting pictures and video on our website.
