HAVERSTRAW — There’s a new brewery coming to Rockland County, and it isn’t the usual scrappy start-up.
Jeff O’Neil already has a fan following. The award-winning brewer, formerly of Peekskill Brewery and Ithaca Brewing Co., is known for his crisp, hop-heavy ales and plans to bring more of that signature style to his new brewery, housed in the historic Garnerville Arts and Industrial Center.
O’Neil’s brewery, Industrial Arts Brewing Co., is due to be fully up and running before Memorial Day.
“It’s charming, for better or worse. It’s a really natural fit for a brewery,” he says. “We’re going to combine that pre-Prohibition antiquated brick with state-of-the-art brewing technology.”
