About Great South Bay Brewery:
Great South Bay Brewery gets its name from the 151 square miles of shallow saltwater heaven stretching to the horizon off the south shore of Long Island, New York. The focus in “The Bay” is quality of life, quality of friends, and quality of pretty much everything else – “the Bay Way”. When it comes to Bay brews, it’s not about how much can be made; but how much better it can be made. It’s not about how fast it can be turned out, but how fast a smile appears on the face that tastes it. All beers are craft brewed using the highest quality malts and the finest hops possible using recipes that have been endlessly tinkered with and processes that are meticulously executed. What surfaces is a mouthful of unique flavor characteristics not common to any other beers. But don’t take our word for it – the proof is in the pint!

About Brooklyn Brewery:
In 1984, Associated Press correspondent Steve Hindy returned from a six-year stint in the Middle East and settled in Brooklyn’s Park Slope neighborhood. Hindy had caught the homebreweing bug from diplomats stationed in Islamic countries like Saudi Arabia and Kuwait where alcoholic beverages were forbidden. With his downstairs neighbor, Tom Potter, Hindy quit his job and founded The Brooklyn Brewery in 1988. And thus their flagship brew, Brooklyn Lager, began its steady march to recognition as one of America’s highest regarded beers.
By 1996, with renowned traditional beer expert Garrett Oliver at the helm as Brewmaster, The Brooklyn Brewery brought brewing back to the once mighty brewing center of Brooklyn. The Brewery is poised to continue to churn out some of the most creative and leading styles of beer in America.

Fire Island Beer Company

About Fire Island Beer Company:
Fire Island Beer Company has emerged from the handiwork of two brothers and a cousin who developed their taste for craft beer and homebrewing during the summers they spent on Fire Island, the naturally beautiful barrier island just off Long Island’s south shore. The relaxed island has attracted families, artists, partiers, weekend beach-goers and outdoor sports lovers for generations, yet it refuses to allow cars, pretention and the frantic pace common to NY-metro area culture. This led the company to coin Fire Island “The Other New York”, a concept that is as refreshing as their brews.

SpikedSeltzer is all natural, low carb, gluten-free, and contains 6% alcohol. The company got its start by Nick Shields, a veteran in the brewing and drink industry who started the adventure with SpikedSeltzer in 2013. The product itself is made exclusively from purified water and natural ingredients. The fresh fruit flavors infused in SpikedSeltzer are derived from cold-pressed citrus essence from a variety of fruits. Fermentation of this citrus essence and sugar naturally produces 6% alcohol. The result is clean and clear without the sugary sweetness of wine or the heaviness of beer.
Whether it’s straight from the bottle, poured over ice, or used in a mixed drink, SpikedSeltzer always remains perfectly refreshing.
