Hotbox Coffee Porter from Oskar Blues and Not Your Father’s Ginger Ale are soon to hit store shelves everywhere in the state. There are already reports of the Ginger Ale hitting New Haven and other counties, so sit tight if you don’t see it yet. 

Shebeen Brewing has added two new tanks to their arsenal, so expect more brews in the future. 

Outer Light Brewing has expanded their network with a partnership with Rogo Distributors. This means that more people will be able to drink their beer . . . and that’s great because we haven’t had the chance to yet!
