    BRANDON — Brothers Patrick and Daniel Foley have specialized in making local red wine at their family-owned winery since 2008, but later on this month, they will start selling home-brewed beer as well.

    “I have been brewing for four or five years,” Daniel Foley said. “I started off with small batches and recently stepped it up.”

    The brothers started Foley Brothers Brewery, an expansion to the Neshobe River Winery their family has owned for the last four years. Once it opens later this month, it will be the first brewery in Rutland County.

    “The Vermont Brewer Association told us that,” Patrick Foley said. “We are kind of stoked about that.”

    He said one of the biggest motivators to wanting to start a brewery was the fact that they can brew every day.

    It is something that does not happen while making wine.

    “When you make wine, it's a couple of months,” he said. “Traveling to other breweries, we saw that they are brewing every day.”

    To start they are offering two types of beers – the Ginger Wheat and Brown Ale – which will be available first wholesale in 22-ounce bottles.
