CRAFT BREWING OUT EAST
A Panel Discussion with
Vaughn Cutillo, Montauk Brewery Company
Richard Vandenburgh, Greenport Harbor Brewing Company
and Lauri Spitz, Moustache Brewing Co.
Hosted and Moderated by Charles Collins
In the Library’s courtyard, a tasting of the craft beers of all three breweries will follow the lecture.
VAUGHN CUTILLO is head of marketing for the Montauk Brewing Company and a co-founder of the establishment with his friends, Eric Moss and Joe Sullivan. The company, now in its fifth year, is among the country’s fastest growing craft breweries.
RICHARD VANDENBURGH is a co-founder of Greenport Harbor Brewing Company, having left a career in law to co-found the company with his college friend, John Liegey. He has been a member of the Board of Directors of the New York State Brewers Association since 2013 and is presently in his second term as board secretary. He is also president of the Greenport Village Improvement District and a board member of the Long Island Farm Bureau, the North Fork Promotions Council, and the Greenport American Legion.
LAURI SPITZ, with her husband, Matthew, are the co-founders of the Riverhead-based Moustache Brewing Company, which opened its doors in April of 2014 and expanded last year to a seven barrel brew house, nearly quadrupling the company’s capacity.
