SingleCut Beersmiths owner Rich Buceta, Councilmember Peter Vallone and local civic leader Tony Meloni snip the ribbon at the opening of the Astoria brewery.

It was suds heaven for Astoria beer drinkers.

Over 1,000 guests crammed their way into SingleCut Beersmiths on Saturday, December 8 for the grand opening of the borough’s first major brewery in decades.

“It was fantastic,” said SingleCut spokesperson Brian Dwyer. “We were bursting at the seams. It was excellent. We had a great response from everybody.”

The staff offered patrons free tastes of two beers — the “19-33 Lagrrr” and the “Dean Pacific Northwest Mahogany Ale.” Around 3:30 in the afternoon, SingleCut sold out of their take-home growlers — a huge sign of success for any business of brew.

Even Councilmember Peter Vallone showed up at the opening event to cut the ribbon and welcome SingleCut into the neighborhood.

“It was a huge community response which is exactly what we were hoping for,” said Dwyer. “The majority of the people there were from the neighborhood and they said they’d be back again.”
