While we love big juicy IPAs (and will be brewing some don’t fret), we plan to make our beers stand out from most CT breweries by offering a variety of craft lagers such as our big 8% IIPL The Harder They Come (alright are you back with us?) in addition to a variety of craft ales. We feel craft lagers are under-represented in CT and we can’t wait to turn people on to the smooth and sultry nature of these slow, cold, and bottom fermented craft brews.
Over the past two years, we have shared our beers with friends and craft beer geeks throughout the nutmeg state as well as aboard the CT Beer Trail brewery bus tour, at a r/CTBeer Meetup at Two Roads and at Beer for Beauty which was organized to benefit downtown beautification in our home-to-be Niantic. We plan to continue to share our beers with anyone interested (that means you) until we can open our doors. Here’s a list of some of the beers we’re working on (some named and some still nameless) and have shared with family, friends and CT craft beer enthusiasts. We’ll continue to add to this list as we test beers in preparation for opening . Each listing below is linked to our Untappd Page. If you love craft beer and don’t have this app, GET IT. Cheers and thanks for stopping by!
