February 14, 2011

Assemblyman Lentol was excited to join Mayor Bloomberg and other elected officials in the area today to celebrate the expansion which will create jobs and grow the local economy. Assemblyman Lentol was instrumental in securing the financing from the Empire State Development Corporation that has allowed the expansion to go forward and for Brooklyn Brewery to continue to be made in Brooklyn.

"Steve Hindy and Brooklyn Brewery have been good friends and strong leaders for Brooklyn and for New York. This is exactly what government should be doing for our businesses: supporting them and helping them grow within our communities," said Assemblyman Lentol. "I am thrilled to be here today and I am proud to have helped secure the funds that allow this expansion to go forward. But the true man of the hour is Steve Hindy, my heartfelt congratulations to him and to Brooklyn Brewery, Cheers! said Lentol.

Assemblyman Lentol also noted that it was the birthdays of both Mayor Bloomberg and Borough President Marty Markowitz who were both in attendance. He later remarked that he was almost looking forward to cutting the cakes, flavored with Brooklyn Brewery Beer as much as he was looking forward to cutting the ribbon to officially open the new brewery expansion.
