Owner and brewmaster Scott Vaccaro announced today that he is moving his brewery to an 18,000-square-foot location on Route 9A in Elmsford by the end of the year.
“With our distribution continuing to grow, and the tasting room busting at the seams, it is time to make a move to a facility that can sustain our growth for years to come,” he wrote in an e-mail to customers.
The new site will have five times the capacity of the current location on Castleton Road in Pleasantville, and will allow Captain Lawrence to begin packaging its beer in 12-ounce bottles. Scott will also be adding an experimental brew house, so he can create new beers on a regular basis.
Fans of CL’s tastings will be pleased to know that the new tasting room will be about 1,500 square feet, or four times the size of the current location.
In the email, Scott said:
"It was always my dream, from the time I brewed my first batch of home brew, to open a brewery and bring fresh and exciting beers to the place I grew up; Westchester County. We have been extremely fortunate to have had the tremendous support of the Village and people of Pleasantville, our local neighbors, Westchester County, as well as beer drinkers throughout the NY Metro area and beyond. We did our best to stay in Pleasantville, looking at a number of potential sites, but unfortunately none of them fit our long term needs. We are looking forward to getting to know our new neighbors in Greenburgh."
