The Brook­lyn Brew­ery Corp. plans to con­struct a brew­ery at the Ste­wart Air­port In­dus­trial Park off Route 17K.

TOWN OF NEWBURGH >> The Brook­lyn Brew­ery Corp. plans to con­struct a 250,000-square-foot brew­ery at the Ste­wart Air­port In­dus­trial Park off Route 17K.

Un­der pro­vi­sions of the pro­posed 60-year lease, which has yet to be ap­proved by the Port Author­ity of New York and New Jersey, the com­pany would as­sume con­trol over 823,000 square feet of prop­erty.

The com­pany would pay ap­prox­i­mately $30.1 mil­lion in ground rental for the site. The brew­ery could be ex­panded to 350,000 square feet.

Orange County Ex­ec­u­tive Steven Neuhaus said the fa­cil­ity would pro­vide a ma­jor shot in the arm for the re­gional econ­omy.

“This would be man­u­fac­tur­ing. It would have tourism.

It would have a restau­rant com­po­nent to it. Ev­ery­body is ex­cited to work with them: the town of Newburgh, our eco­nomic devel­op­ment part­ners in the state,” he said.

This would be the first sig­nif­i­cant lease of prop­erty at the air­port in­dus­trial park since the Port Author­ity took over the air­port in November 2007.
