About Us

craft lagers are back

Hello and welcome!  We are Noble Jay Brewing Company and we are opening a brewery and taproom in the quaint seaside New England town of Niantic, Connecticut in 2017 (based on completion of a tedious permitting process with Federal, State and Local Agencies).  We’ve spent the past 3 years hitting the pavement, supporting the great brewers of Connecticut and sharing our beers with anyone interested.  Along the way, we’ve tried to give back to our home-to-be (which two of us already call home) and have thoroughly enjoyed getting to know fellow brewers, brewery owners and craft beer lovers in the Nutmeg State.  A friendly group to say the least.

Our brewery is named in honor of our brewer and Founder’s mother Patricia Jay who passed away when he was 15 months old from skin cancer.  After brewing for 16 years for family and friends, Mike thought it would be fitting to honor her as the brewery’s namesake.  “Patricia” has Latin roots in “Nobility” and thus we became Noble Jay Brewing Company.  In order to further honor her legacy and give back to our community, we will have a single tap in the brewery designated as “The Noble Tap.”  Each month we will team with a different local charity and 10% of the sales from The Noble Tap that month will go to the charity.  Just a small way we can say thanks to the town in which we’re building our nest.

Craft breweries are gaining ground in Connecticut and we plan to stand out in the crowd by highlighting the beauty of craft lagers in addition to ales.  We will offer brews for craft beer geeks and newcomers to craft beer alike and our flagships will include Mo Pilsner (a pre-prohibition style American Pilsner), Fatty Boom Boom (a big, malty,9% Baltic Porter) and The Harder They Come (Big and balanced IIPL hopped with copious amounts of Amarillo).  Some of our other offerings will include Sir William Strong Scotch Ale, a Sorachi-Ace Hopped Rye Pale Ale (inspired by our friend @ctbrewtopian) and a Munich Dunkel.  You can find out more about the beers we’ve been working on here.  So thanks for stopping by!  Follow us on Twitter (@noblejaybrew and @noblejayjesse), Instagram (@noblejaybrew), and Facebook for updates on our journey.  We look forward becoming a part of the community and can’t wait to share a beer with you.

    East Lyme (and my husband & I, in particular!) would be delighted to have you make your brew room’s home here!!! Where in town are you looking? Niantic has a couple open spots that’d be great– depending on how much space you need! Good luck & we’ll keep an eye out! That’s the kind of bird watching I can embrace 😉

  4. Hello! I represent Bears Pet Food Pantry, a non profit that is headquartered in Old Saybrook. We are looking for a brewery that would hold 50 persons, and would like to partner with us to hold a Comedy and Craft Brew night, sometime in April. We already have the comedians, and the emcee.
    Does your tap room hold at least 50 persons? Please let us know when you are planning to open.
