Black Hog Brewery: The Sobocinski Bros and Tyler Jones Go Hog Wild – Oxford, CT

Yes, please...

Black Hog, a nickname for the Berkshire pig…arguably one of the best tasting meats around.  The name conjures up pig roasts, people coming together as a community, and celebrating over some brews.  “The slower and the lower, the better it is for cooking Berkshire pig.  I’ve had pig roasts for both of my kids birthdays.  They are respectful because we use the whole animal and it’s communal.  That theme, that idea of community and celebration…that’s what we want to propagate,” proudly shared Jason Sobocinski, one of the owners of the brand new Black Hog Brewing Co. that is opening up this summer in Oxford.  Also, with an equal part in the brewery is Jason’s brother Tom who owns Caseus with Jason and Headbrewer Tyler Jones.
