When my cousin James unexpectedly asks if I want to stop at a brewery on the way home to visit my aunt and uncle, the answer will always be yes!
Being that North Fork Brewing Co. is build out of a retired fire house, theres enough space inside for large parties, plus outdoor seating for people with pups.
Being that it was my first time here I had to get a flight. Four 2 oz pours for 8 bucks is not bad at all!
I tried Gaffers a rich breakfast Stout brewed with maple and cold brew. My cousin did not like it one bit, but I was into it. I’m your Huckleberry a farmhouse saison, a touch of residual sugar never hurt anyone. South Bend Shovel Slayer what they call a new school IPA. Dry hopped with Calypso and Warrior Hops, a touch of citrus notes and just the right amount of hops. Basement Pipe a Belgian Dubbel a beautiful amber ale with a hint of burnt caramel. Each delicious and special on their own.
Gorgeous outdoor seating, and interesting beers. I wouldn’t be mad if we stopped by again.
Next door, you’ll see a new brewery in the works called Long Beard Brewing Co. We had a chance to talk to one of the brewers Paul. He was well verse in the world of hops and happened to be designing the whole layout of the future tasting room. I’ll definitely scope it out once it opens.
