The shop is also owned by the same owners of the popular Newburgh eatery Caffe Macchiato.

Newburgh’s newest brewery, Graft Cider, had their first pop-up last weekend. Located a little further west, this section of Ann Street doesn’t see the same foot traffic as other commercial corridors. All the more reason to check out what goes on behind their closed doors. The pop-up gave everyone a chance to tour the brewery, […]
