Sand City South, Lindenhurst’s new state-of-the-art brewery, has been a key part of the revitalization of downtown Lindenhurst.
Co-owners Bill Kiernan and Kevin Sihler, the owners of Sand City Brewing Co., transformed a vacated CVS building on South Wellwood Ave. into an impressive 10,000-square-foot brewhouse.
The two, who opened their first location in Northport in 2015, opened on the South Shore this March.
And now they are being rewarded for their work.
This month PSEG Long Island announced it awarded Sand City with a $25,000 grant for its work in helping beautify the village of Lindenhurst. The money is part of PSEG’s Main Street Revitalization Program, which offers financial incentives to help improve local business districts.
According to PSEG, the owners also qualified for its Vacant Space Revival Program, a business electric rate discount for the first year of operation, for taking over a building that has been empty for a year-plus.
PSEG interviewed Ian O’Connor, Sand City South’s taproom manager, following the grant check presentation. Watch it below.
