Up next: Brown’s Brewing Company!
This month we return to Brown’s Brewing Company. We stopped here on our epic craft brewery tour back in March and are revisiting to chat about some more tasty brews.
For many craft beer fans, dark beers such as Stouts, Porters, and Ambers are what draw a lot of passion and dedication. Dark beers have complexities that unfold across the palate, leaving an enticing flavor. Brown’s Oatmeal Stout does this very well, and has been a flagship in the Brown’s taproom for nearly two decades because of its easy-drinking, full-bodied flavors. Oatmeal Stout is an engaging, dark, and bold ode to the classic English Stout. The brew earned Brown’s the prestigious gold medal at the World Beer Cup; but that hasn’t stopped them from continuing to refine it into an approachable, easy-to-drink, rich, and silky smooth glass of deliciousness. For the ultimate experience, check out the Oatmeal Stout Spotify playlist.
Cherry Razz was born in Brown’s Troy Taproom in the mid 1990’s. It has gone through many iterations, but has always resonated with folks who are drawn to bold flavor. Tart and sassy just like its name, this Amber Ale features a generous amount of whole crushed cherries and raspberries balancing a sweet malt forward character and a slight hop zest. For a fervently dedicated fan base, this beer is an elegant tradition for many nights out. Easy to fall in love with, Cherry Razz is even easier to drink. Don’t forget to check out the Cherry Razz Spotify playlist.

Our December home.grown. Brewer of the Month: Stony Creek Brewery!

Next up to the plate: Stony Creek Brewery!
The pride of Branford, CT, Stony Creek Brewery was rebranded by co-founder Ed
Crowley in 2015. Prior to the rebranding, Stony Creek was a small-scale contract-produced craft brand, mainly known for their IPAs named after Connecticut’s two area codes, 203 and 860. Stony Creek became much bigger after their rebrand, which launched in February 2015, and they opened up their first brewery right along the Branford River.
The brewery’s 30,000 square foot size makes it the second largest brewing facility and taproom in the state of Connecticut. One of its unique features is a 2,500 square foot tasting room with 23-ounce glass mugs hanging on the wall behind the bar as part of the brewery’s Mug Club. The “Mug Club” is a way of giving back to devoted customers by giving them “their own little piece of the creek,” according to Ed Crowley Jr!
We’re proud to team up with the great people over at Stony Creek and we look forward to showcasing their crafty creations, today and in the future
