My experience with breweries is they sometimes have a hard time balancing the problem of catering to beer enthusiasts and welcoming Joe Budweiser. Crooked Ladder in Riverhead has enough for the interested amateur and the expert to make a trip worthwhile.
Participating wineries and breweries will pour their wares to go with the chefs’ creations.
The literally fire engine red beermobile, which can fit 10 half-barrels in its back, was once part of brew-master Duffy Griffith’s fleet at the Jamesport Fire Department and was converted into a rolling keggerator with help from Long Island company, Clear Beer, which also maintains the epic draft system at Digger’s.
