Great South Bay Produces Small Batches of Beer Developed by Home Brewers

Chris Kelley, member of local home brewing club Long Island Beer & Malt Enthusiasts, had an idea: organize and host a Chopped style brew day. Ten teams, each with a head brewer and one or two assistants, were randomly assigned a style of beer and two ingredients, such as wood, peaches or habanero peppers; Kelley’s team drew a rye IPA base with orange peel and basil.
