On tap at Gentle Giant:

 Paleolithic Pils German Pilsner—A crisp Pilsner brewed with a touch of Munich malt to add a slight biscuit flavor profile. Gently hopped throughout the boil with Hallertau Blanc gives it the perfect balance of bitterness and floral aromas.
 Citrazoic Double IPA—Made from the world-renowned Citra hops, this beer pours a medium amber with an intense citrus aroma and flavor including grapefruit and lime aromas along with gooseberry, passion fruit and lychee notes.
 Bobby Doesn’t Know Shea Hazy IPA— You ask and you shall receive. Back by popular demand, we made a New England. IPA.  This double IPA has a traditional hazy appearance combined with a soft mouth feel perfectly fitting to the style. Dry hopped intensely with El Dorado and Cashmere, it gives tasting notes of tropical fruit punch and ripe pineapple. Should we keep cranking out New England IPAs? I think we just might.
 Baryonyx Black Lager—Made using bottom-fermenting lager yeast which imparts a dry crispness to this beer, this brew has a malty sweetness and a hoppy bitterness, with notes of coffee and chocolate.

Norcina in New City Recipient of NYS Empire Award

Published

NEW CITY, NY – As Covid-19 hit Rockland County, many people wanted to help but didn’t know how. Rockland native Eddie Stapleton, who now resides in North Carolina contacted Norcina’s on how to help small business and people assisting the community he grew up in. He purchased and donated 10 large pies, to a place of their choice, which Norcina in turn matched w/ 10 more pies. 20 fresh pies were just delivered to Good Sam Hospital in Suffern. (Pictured below are the Cardiovascular Operating Room crew at Good Samaritan Hospital Suffern, NY with Norcina Owners Milan Dobrilovic and Nick Nuccio – top photo)

In just 26 days the Norcina Pizza Match would donate over 1,000 pizza pies to Rockland County medical professionals and first responders battling the COVID-19 epidemic.

How it worked: Norcina would match any donation an individual or organization makes to any hospital, first responders, or medical professionals who are actively fighting the COVID-19 pandemic.

Norcina would end up starting a trend locally that inspired other businesses to honor the same deal. Not only did it support small businesses but it provided residents with the ability to show their support to our first responders and medical professionals.

The New York State Empire Award was presented by Senator Elijah Reichlin-Melnick. It honors businesses that make major contributions to public service, and enhancing the quality of life for New Yorkers.
