RIVERHEAD, NY , June 8, 2016 Good Vibrations Shoes, Inc. announced today that its subsidiary company, Long Beard Breweries, Inc. has received approval for the build-out of its brewery and tasting room in Riverhead Long Island.
Long Beard has been waiting for the permit so they can get started on what they consider to be one of the most important aspects of their business. More than just a place to brew their craft beer, the company's Riverhead tasting room will be a space within the brewery where guests may come to purchase and sample Long Beard's wonderful craft beer, meet the people at Long Beard, and experience the brewery's culture, and environment, a very important part of building a loyal customer base.
Current plans have the tasting room slated to be the largest in Riverhead at close to 1000 square feet. Company CEO, Paul Carlindescribes it by saying, "The feel of the Long Beard tasting room is going to be something along the lines of old Norse hall meets rustic mountain lodge. There will be lots of rough sawed wood, earth tones and a Viking Ship!! That's right, the impressive "U" shaped serving bar will literally be the bow of a Viking ship complete with a drop down antler chandelier." He goes on to say, "We will also have a huge 12 x 4 foot hall table made from thick wood, just like the ones you'd see in the old Viking banquet halls. We will have outside seating; a gourmet food truck and a little rec area for cornhole or something similar, and of course live music will also be incorporated. It is going to be the type of place that once you are there, you're never going to want to leave."
One of the huge benefits of Long Beard having carpenters and mechanics as majority shareholders is that most, if not all of the work will be done by officers of the company themselves, saving lots of money on labor cost, and reducing expenses to mostly just supplies and materials. With the federal licensing, as well as the county and other various approvals and permits now in place, the build-out of this ambitious project can finally begin, and is not expected to take very long. The company hopes to release estimated completion dates very soon, and Long Beard Brewing Company can finally be on its way to becoming the next big thing in craft beer.
