PSEG Long Island recently awarded Sand City Brewing Co. a $25,000 grant for enhancing downtown Lindenhurst village with its new storefront taproom and brewery, Sand City South. The grant is part of PSEG Long Island’s Main Street Revitalization program, which supports renovation of underutilized properties to improve the economic stability and growth of a business district.
In the few weeks since it opened, the South Wellwood Ave. location is already proving to be a destination for local residents and Long Islanders.
Because the building was vacant for more than a year, co-owners Bill Kiernan and Kevin Sihler also qualified for PSEG Long Island’s Vacant Space Revival Program, which discounts a business’ electric rate for the first year. The program is designed to encourage new businesses to open in previously unoccupied commercial space, since empty storefronts detract from the economic vitality of a business district.
