Introducing…the one, the only…White Willi.  It’s a collabo between Dave Wollner of Willimantic Brewing Company and Mark DaSilva of Southport Brewing Company.  They met at SBC Stamford just yesterday to get the brew started.  This bad boy will be a beautiful, sessionable beer.  Here’s a bit more about it:

American Craft Beer Week goes from 5/12 to 5/18 this year and it coincides exactly, as we previously shared, with the first of two CT Beer Weeks.  So, it’s no surprise that Coalhouse Pizza in Stamford is up to some hoppy goodness for this time…and, well, the entire month, and well…every single day of the year.  Truly, Gerard is devoted to tapping the best craft and CT brews.  Here are some of the great things planned for this May at Coalhouse Pizza in Stamford…

CT Beer WEEKS 2014: 2x Big, 2x Brews, 2x Awesome

16 Apr
CT Beer Week 2014

Because one week just wasn’t enough! :)

Last year marked the first ever statewide CT Beer Week, brought together by Connecticut Beer Wholesalers Association.  There was a kickoff with the Rising Pint Brewfest that featured over 70 brewers, plenty of events at breweries, restaurants, and retailers, and even a chance at unlocking the CT Beer Week Badge on Untappd.  

Well, we’re happy to report that this year’s activities will include not just one CT Beer Week, but TWO…CT Beer Weeks.  Well, damn, that’s plenty of drinking time, right?  To be honest, it’s brilliant timing for both dates:  May 12-18 and October 13-19.  

First off, American Craft Beer Week coincides perfectly with the first CT Beer Week of 2014…that’s no coincidence at all.  Breweries like Shebeen, Two Roads, Half Full, Relic, Thimble Island, New England Brewing, and Beer’d have been putting out some artfully artisan crafted brews, so it’s important to shift our focus to these guys.  You, or loyal readers, know about the importance of drinking beer from the “little guys,” but there are lots of people out there who have yet to have their first Gandhi Bot, Cannoli Beer, Biere de Mars, or Road 2 Ruin.  What better time to convert your friends and family? ;)

And, then there’s the second part of CT Beer Week…wouldn’t you know it, but it coincides nicely with CT Restaurant Week that goes down from October 14-20.  Again, this is no coincidence.  You can not only expect lots of great beer-related events, but you can also look forward to lots of great meal deals throughout the state.

We’ll have more details to share soon, but make sure to mark off your calendars with all of these dates.  In the meantime, check out these events and CT’s breweries:
