These hops have been shipped to us in whole leaf form - ready to be dropped right into your brew pots, or into your secondary for dry hopping.…

So after months and months of planning... it all came down to this past Sunday. The stage was set... the field was locked. Out of the new craze that is Pumpkin Beer, I found several individuals that were willing to embark on a journey that not many would DARE try. Continue

Folks, we’re trying to get the best things available. While we have access to Ruby St Brewing all grain system (and the most competitive prices, just ask), it is a bit large for our humble floorspace. Oh, we’re still looking into that, but for now I’d like to share what we’ve squeezed in.
Blichmann Engineering’s Top Tier brewtree is now in stock (with three… Continue

In a couple of minutes, I’ll be headed off to Pennsylvania to visit a number of breweries and check out their equipment. This is one of the biggest decisions I can make in the young life of Half Full Brewery and I cannot express how appreciative I am of everyone who has been willing to help me out with this process. It really says a lot about the craft beer industry when…

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. Continue
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).
I wanted to share this new community and get its name out there to show just how quickly craft…
