Have a girls pint out with Black Hog Brewing at Fleishers Craft Kitchen Westport

8 Mar

Ok, so as you’ve probably noticed, we write our blog posts pretty ambiguously so you never really know if it’s Kristien or Dan writing it. It’s not that we’re not trying to trick you or anything, it’s just that it allows us to be more fluid in who’s writing what and when, finishing each other’s posts, etc. But for this post, we’re breaking all the rules . . . and in case you were wondering who the rule breaker is in this relationship, well, it’s usually me, Kristien!

Why am I so adamant about breaking the rules for this one post? Because I’m sick and tired of the stereotype that killer craft beers are for men and ladies only like the lighter, easier drinking stuff. EFF that, this girl is Double IPA all the way! Give me some 120 Minute, Heady Topper, or Haze any day! It’s about damn time the craft beer industry not only recognizes their loyal female fans, but maybe even plans some marketing efforts targeted TO them instead of just men. (Can’t help it, that’s the marketer in me speaking–damn day job.) Continue reading

Pig Out w/ Black Hog and W2CT Pig Roast + Cornhole Tourney

13 Apr


Before the uber-successful Black Hog Brewing opened up in Oxford, we had the chance to talk with Jason Sobocinski (one of the owners along with his brother Tom and headbrewer Tyler Jones). We asked where the name Black Hog came from and he shared that it’s another name for the Berkshire pig and invokes memories like pig roasts and events that bring people together. 

Black Hog Brewing in Oxford, CTWell, Black Hog Brewing is bringing that fun vibe in by teaming up with Ken Tuccio from the Welcome to Connecticut Podcast for The 1st Annual Flag Day Cornhole Tournament and Pig Roast.

Yes We CAN: Black Hog Brewery Readies Can Distribution

8 Jan

This trinity of beer will make you feel all tingly inside. Picture from Black Hog’s FB page.

One of the major success stories for CT beer in 2014 was Black Hog Brewery, opened up over the summer in Oxford. Part of their overwhelming success came from the people behind the brewery: Jason and Tom Sobocinski from Caseus and Tyler Jones, former brewer at Portsmouth Brewpub. The other reason, we believe, they became so popular was the arsenal of brews that they released. They started with one of our favorite brews of the year, Ginga’ Ninja, and lots of other great brews like their S.W.A.G., Easy Rye’ Da, and Granola Brown Ale. Soon after these came out, though, they were off adding seasonal beers like their Strawberry Gose and special releases called The Hop Collective that feature one strain of hops.
