Barrage Brewing Company Tasting Room Grand Opening – July 19, 2014

0 comments

Barrage Brewing Company has had their doors open since January of this year, thanks to a lot of hard work by owner Steve Pominski and a little help from Kickstarter, but there is now a new addition to the brewery: a place to enjoy the beer. Pominski and longtime friend Al Nappi have had the brewery under construction for the past couple months and the tasting room is now (softly) open for business. The official grand opening celebration will be on July 19.

New, expanded hours include Friday from 4-8 pm, in addition to their current hours of 1-5 pm on Saturday and Sunday. Instead of waiting in the brewery for growler fills, customers will be now able to both fill their growlers and enjoy pints and sample glasses from the 8 tap system in the new tasting room. Though the area is small, seating is available and there are even some bar stools upholstered with horse hair, we kid you not. The personal nature makes it feel like a true garage bar aka bar-rage. Hey, that’s the name of the brewery.

Barrage Brewing: It’s Almost Go Time…

0 comments

It’s been a long road for Barrage Brewing the past couple years, but finally there is light at the end of the tunnel and beer in the fermenters. After months of construction, roadblocks from Suffolk County and a successful Kickstarter campaign, Barrage has now begun production in their Farmingdale, New York facility.

Owner Steve Pominski says they hope to open the doors this month and are well on their way to making sure the brewery is fully stocked. Craft beer bars and distributors are already eagerly waiting for kegs to be filled, so look for Barrage beer on tap across Long Island very soon. Additionally, Barrage Brewing will have tasting room hours and offer on site growler fills and merchandise. keep reading...

Barrage Brewing Company Kickstarter Construction Update

Local underdog Barrage Brewing Company is well under way with the construction necessary to get their brewery up and running. The Farmingdale New York based start up has their trenches dug, pipes cut and lots of dirt moved in an effort to get things situated with the Suffolk County Sewer Agency. As you may recall Steve Pominski owner of BBC launched a campaign via Kickstarter to raise the $18,000+ needed to make these changes and successfully acquired the necessary funding in late August.

Kevin recently stopped by the brewery and “heavy cleaning” will indeed be needed to get Barrage Brewing Company back to were it was before it’s successful Kickstarter campaign. The floor was torn up and dirt was piled high. Pipes and tools were laying about the brewery and workers milled about. During the down time when the guys who were working on the space needed to make a run for parts, Mr. Pominski showed Kevin around the brewery (which we have both visited when it was in pristine condition). They talked about the plans for Barrage Brewing going forward which included Alicia creating their new website and possibly some updates to their marketing as well as the obvious coming changes to the sewer infrastructure and brewery itself. keep reading...

Barrage Brewing: Doors Successfully Kicked (Almost) Open!

0 comments

Way to go, Long Island! Once again you have supported a local member of the craft beer community in the form of a Kickstarter campaign, and once again they have met and surpassed the target. Earlier today, with 8 hours to spare, Barrage Brewing met their Kickstarter goal of $18,000. This money will be used towards mandatory sewer system work, which is the final step before the brewery can open its doors. Very soon we will have yet another brewery here on Long Island (in Farmingdale, to be exact) thanks in part to the support of the community. To say Steve Pominski, owner of Barrage Brewing, is excited and grateful would likely be an understatement. We will leave you with his Facebook status moments after the $18,000 milestone was reached: keep reading...

Barrage Brewing Company Kickstarter – Let’s Kick Those Doors Open!!!

BARRAGE BREWING COMPANY NEEDS YOUR HELP TO OPEN. IF YOU WANT MORE LOCAL CRAFT BEER HEAD OVER TO KICKSTARTER AND DONATE. ONLY 20 DAYS LEFT!

But first here is a little background. As you can see from the above photo, Barrage Brewing Company is ready to start brewing. Unfortunately they have run into a crappy situation thanks to the Suffolk County Sewer District. The SCSD wants Steve Pominski (owner of BBC) to do a fair amount of work at his brewery located in Farmingdale, New York. This came as a bit of a shock because everything seemed to be kosher with all of the building permits up until the moment the SCSD stepped up to the plate. The town had no issues with the brewery or the beer that would be produced there and did not mandate any upgrades or changes to the location. To run the burners a gas line was needed but there was no issue in obtaining the line (although it was delayed several months due to hurricane Sandy). All seemed to be going fairly well, things were moving forward nicely while Barrage Brewing Company waited for it’s license to come in from New York State so they could be a full fledged brewery crafting beer for a thirsty public. Ah the halcyon days right? keep reading...
