On Tap: The Connecticut Beer Trail

For a while now, I’ve been a part of the Connecticut Beer Trail, an online group dedicated to craft beer and local breweries, brewpubs, restaurants, and other beer-related events. The beer trail’s been part of the reason I’ve been so supportive of Connecticut breweries in my pairing (the other reason being that the beer is just downright delicious).

Beer Pairing: Catahoula Crab Gumbo

I’ve always been a fan of Cajun cuisine and a good stew, like gumbo or jambalaya, is what really hits the spot. I’ve experimented with different recipes for a homemade gumbo with a New England twist, but I couldn’t find the right on. So, I just decided to make my own...Continue reading recipe on Examiner.com.Beer selection:  Sea Hag IPA from New England Brewing Co.Go check it out.…See More

Beer Pairing: The Still-Drunken Omelet with Fancy Tomato-Vinegar Sauce

Okay, let’s face it. We’ve all had those mornings when we wake up, take two steps towards the bathroom and realize we’re still slightly in the condition we were the night before. As the great Jimmy Buffett said, “there’s a thin line between Saturday nights and Sunday mornings.”The best advice I was ever given in college was, “if you ever wake up and realize you’re still drunk, just crack another cold one and keep on drinkin.’”…See More

A Study in Cardboard: Sherlock Holmes and the Mystery of the Variety 12-Pack

Maybe it’s me, but I always have bad luck when it comes to a 12-pack case of craft beer. Here's the thing - the problem is never with the beer itself.There are some basic things you should know about me before I get started. I love to cook. I love to eat. I love beer. I love drinking beer. But most of all, I love buying beer.There's nothing better than finding a distributor that has shelves of local and craft beer. It's like I'm five years old again, walking wide-eyed into the toy department…See More

Thanks Kate!!  We look forward to bringing our beer into the market and having you as a customer (and hopefully visitor to the brewery as well).  We were very excited about the Record-Journal article.  Since you mentioned the article, I"ll give our full disclosure: At the end it says we hope to sell 10,000 barrels in our first year.  While that would be nice, our actual goal was 1,000 barrels. :-)

Glad to have you on board Kate.  We're hoping to have a little bit of our newest beer at the Fest (think Imperial Dirty Penny aged in whisky barrels).
