On sale now in the Long Ireland tasting room in Riverhead is Collaboration Saison Ale, a joint project between Long Ireland and Blind Bat Brewery. (Blind Bat was featured in our Low Summer 2012 issue.)
As the name suggests, saisons are seasonal beer and this one was created for the Long Island Craft Beer Week, which was held in May.
It comes in a 750 ml bottle with a cork and cage for $12.
To try more of Long Ireland’s beer, check out their Irish Music and Beer Fest this Saturday, July 7, from 1 to 6 p.m.
Free admission, Irish step dancing and music; beer and food for sale. The event will benefit Long Island Pipes and Drums, Long Island’s newest bagpipe band.
