The concept of brewing came to John Rubbo and Nick Califano of Yonkers Brewing Co. after they helped their grandfathers make homemade wine. As they exchanged stories, they cracked open a cold beer. As the cap fell off, the lights went on. The generations-old tradition of wine making sparked a fire, and with head brewer Taleb, they brewed up a recipe now known as their flagship, Yonkers Vienna Lager.
