The beer will ferment in the bottle, which owner and brewmaster Michael Philbrick is quoted in the article as saying "ensures better shelf life and sustained freshness, as the yeast cleans up the shortcomings of bad handling."
The "four-malt, honey-smooth porter" was released April 16 and will help distribute the Port Jefferson based beer to non-draft clients of the brewery. Krommydas said that while this is not the first of the Port Jefferson brewer’s beers to be bottled, it’s the first to be released in a 22-oz. format year-round.

Philbrick has plans for three more bottled beers in the future.
