Long Ireland Brews With Blind Bat for Saison Bottle Release

Just in time for Long Island Craft Beer Week,  is putting out its third bottle release on Friday, a collaborative effort with Centerport-based Blind Bat Brewery.

Dubbed Collaboration Saison Ale, the French farmhouse-style beer, brewed with a standard coriander flavor, offers drinkers a balance of yeasty and fruity esters while packing 6.6 percent alcohol by volume, a slightly heavier ABV for a typical saison.


A "cash mob" hit Sag Harbor on Sunday afternoon, the first of what promises to be many visits to small businesses on the South Fork by Cash Mob East End in an effort to bring community shopkeepers a needed influx of money.

The mobbers were prepared to spend $20 each, but did not learn until they arrived which business they would be headed to. They met at the windmill at the  at 3 p.m., where instructions — as well as Cash Mob stickers — were given out to participants.

The chosen business, , at 51 Division Street, is relatively new and one block off Main Street. The store offering quality meat and fish, olive oil and many prepared foods, was filled with mobbers. Even vegetarians and vegans had plenty to choose from, plus the Sag Harbor Baking Co., the next door neighbor, was mobber friendly.


 located at 25 Montauk Highway in Quogue, is now offering skin care treatments, including facials and peels.

Dr. Tracy Pfeifer, a board certified plastic surgeon, who also has locations in Great Neck and Manhattan, says she wanted to add another dimension to her business. 


The  is a unique boutique in Greenport, focusing on a simplistic, natural and vintage inspired aesthetic in its handmade gifts and interior design services. Thing is, not too many people knew about it, tucked away on a side street off of Main Street near  when it first opened in the village last August — foot traffic just wasn’t happening.

So a week ago, owner Rena Wilhelm reopened the White Weathered Barn on Front Street across from  next to , where a clothing store had been and a department store was located originally, and business has been picking up.


Now that  opened for the 2012 season on Friday, the only question is how long will it take you to get down there and have a BBC? 

Bailey's Banana Colada drink is just one of the many signature drinks people flock to Cyril's for each summer. 

The well-known pit stop on the way to Montauk attracts large crowds. You'll know when you get close by the line of cars along both sides of Montauk Highway. Just be super careful crossing.

Tim's Prime Meats & Seafood is actually on the east (East Hampton) side of Division, so I guess that made it an E Hampton mob event!
