Sackets Harbor Brewing Company Continues Success in Syracuse Market
Seaway Valley Capital Corporation (OTC Bulletin Board: SWVC) today reported that its War of 1812 Amber Ale, which is produced by wholly owned subsidiary Sackets Harbor Brewing Company, has been recognized by Syracuse's famous Dinosaur Bar-B-Q (the "Dinosaur") as one of its strongest selling beers on draught. The Dinosaur (www.dinosaurbarbque.com), which is located at 246 Willow St. in Syracuse and has locations in Rochester and New York City, was started in Syracuse in 1983 by three bikers, "bound together by the love of good food, a 55 gallon drum cut in half, and a serious case of wanderlust" and over the years expanded its space to include a full bar and waitress service in a live blues music backdrop. Over the last decade the Dinosaur has been nationally acclaimed as one of the country's best blues clubs and has award winning barbeque cuisine. The Dinosaur also produces and distributes five of its own specialty cooking sauces throughout the U.S., England and Australia.
Paul Massena, Beverage Manager at the Syracuse Dinosaur, stated, "The 1812 Amber Ale is one of the strongest sellers due to its local identity and its natural pairing to Bar-B-Q cuisine. It's a perfect match." Tracey Pastella, Day Managing Bartender, stated that "1812 Amber Ale is hands down the most frequently requested ale on tap." Due to the continuing success of Sackets Harbor 1812 Amber Ale on tap, Paul Massena is also putting it in the Dinosaur's popular seasonal exterior bar.
Sackets Harbor Brewing Company premium beers are sold in Syracuse by TJ Sheehan Distributing Incorporated.
