BREWS BROTHERS: A new burger and beer bar is gearing up to open up in Huntington village. Brews Brothers Grille, which currently operates in Franklin Square, is close to opening a second location at 69 Wall St., Huntington, the former space of XO Restaurant. Posts to the Brews Brothers social media accounts have teased that the new bar and grille is getting ready to make its debut. A new sign also popped up on the building recently, along with a posting about staff openings.

BACK IN BUSINESS: The tasting room at Northport’s popular Sand City Brewing Co. is back open. Complaints filed against the brewery caused village officials to close the watering hole toward the end of last year, but following a hearing before the zoning board last month the brewery’s owners have gotten the green light to reopen. A post to the brewery’s Facebook page made April 15 read, “Yesterday we quietly reopened our tasting room after four months (to the day!) of deck building and politics. The support of people online through posts and petitions, at Village meetings speaking on our behalf, on line at our garage door for can releases, in letter writing to our local officials, and in turn our new Mayor and our Village Trustees and employees has been overwhelming.” The 60 Main St. tasting room is back it its normal hours of operation: 12 noon-8 p.m., Monday-Thursday, 12 noon-10 p.m., Friday-Saturday and 12 noon-7 p.m., Sunday.
