It seemed like such a long time ago when we told you about Kent Falls, a brewery that we believed in with its roots deep in the CT soil. They started off slowly with a few beers and self-distributing to a very select set of restaurants . . . but soon, they had a beast on their hands. People caught on to the Brett-ilicious brews and other funky beers that they’ve put out and distribution grew as well as their popularity. Then, back in February we caught up with Barry who shared they were looking to open soon . . . and now we can share that they will be open next week, June 11!
While they’ll be releasing the full details next week on their site, Kent Falls Brewery shared that they would not only have some of their regular bottles for sale (no on-site consumption), but will also have a special bottle release that day. Also, they are set to remain open on Saturdays from 11-5 during the warmer months. Trust us: you don’t want to drive through those roads in winter!
When we get more details, we’ll let you know, but let’s just say this: it’s such a beautiful brewery and we think you’re gonna fall even more heads over heels for Kent Falls after visiting.
Here’s more from Kent Falls regarding their opening:
“And to answer a lot of questions that have been coming at us about what the experience will be like when we finally do open, I thought I would share them with you here. The experience will be similar to farmer’s market…
- pre packaged bottles available for sale
- focused on special releases – brewery only bottled IPAs, barrel aged beers, small batch projects… (distributed brands available as well)
- no growlers
- no samples
- no full pours
- no on site consumption
- farm store open on site
…only with a few improvements.
- increased allotments (9 liter/18 bottle limit per person at the brewery vs 5 liter/10 bottle limit at the farmers market)
- a wider selection of beer available
- longer hours and eventually multiple retail days per week
- self guided farm tours (walk through the hop yard, see animals…)
- seeing the brewery, ability to ask us about our setup etc…”
