Hoptimists Rejoice! Special Preview @ Half Full Brewery w/ Growler Pours! Stamford, CT

30 Aug

“Fill me,” they cry out…from Half Full Brewery

We were excited when we found out that an awesome craft brewery was opening right in our home city of Stamford, then we were excited when Conor gave us a personal tour, then we were excited when we met Half Full Brewery at Coalhouse Pizza to celebrate being on tap in Stamford, but now we’re even more excited.  Like burst wide open, hold in the pee, too much to handle excited.

That’s because Half Full Brewery growlers have just arrived.  That’s a half gallon of empty space that is just dying to be filled up.  It’s practically calling your name:  “John, Julie, Rob, James…fill me up.  I’m so empty without you and without beer.”    Well, those growlers are looking great but they aren’t much use if they’re just gonna sit there.

Half Full Brew crew has a solution:  come by this Saturday, 9/1 from 11 – 1 pm to:

A) Buy a growler ($2.50 Saturday, normally $5)

B) Buy a growler and fill it ($7.50, normally $15 for both)

C) Fill a growler you already own ($5, normally $10)

Now, not everybody is invited.  You need to be a Hoptimist to enter the sacred doors of Half Full Brewery.  A Hoptimist, you ask?  It’s all explained in their latest e-mail to all their Hoptimists:

hop·ti·mist   [hop-tuh-mist] noun
A person who is passionate about locally brewed craft beer, is disposed to take a favorable view of events or conditions, and is a loyal friend of Half Full Brewery.

You’ll definitely want to check out Half Full Brewery for this special sneak peek.  They are located at 43 Homestead Avenue in Stamford.  When you arrive, you’ll notice 43 Homestead is an industrial looking place.  Drive a bit past the first buildings and you’ll find Half Full Brewery on the right side.  When you enter, get your growlers, check out their tanks and equipment, and check out the progress they are making with their tasting room.  They also might tell you a bit about more of the beers that are on the way if you’ve been a good boy or girl.  So, check ‘um out, stay for a bit, fill up some growlers, then be sure to head to out Blues, Views, & BBQ in Westport.  Maybe we’ll see ya there!

    Can these guys brew some root beer or something for those of us who don’t drink? I would LOVE it if the restaurants around here offered a bottled soda because the ones on tap are always horrific.

      Places that have Roof (sp?) Beer is pretty good tap. :) When we were in Portland, we had Rogue Brewery’s root beer. Holy crap, best root beer EVER!

      They’ll be open Saturday for the preview, but not sure when they’ll be “open” open if you know what we mean. :)
