Just wanted to let my fellow Trailblazers know that as of COB today Sunday May 10, 2015, SBC Branford location will be closing for renovation.  I have heard that it will re-open in 3 to 4 weeks without the brewery and may have a new name.  That's as much as I know but I'm sure Mark DaSilva can provide for details.

Cork & Brew home brew beer swap!

Would there be interest out there if Cork & Brew hosted a home brewed beer swap?  Free of charge.  Home brewers would just have to sign up & bring a six pack or more of their brew & swap with other beer lovers. Take it home or drink it there.  Talk beer making.  Thoughts?  Interest?
