Beer’d Brewing Makes Fairfield County Debut at Coalhouse; More Meet the Brewers Nights Planned

7 Feb

Beer’d Brewing, based out of Stonington, has been on our bucket list of CT breweries for quite a while. The good word on the streets is that they have some of the best beer in the state, but we’ve never even had the chance to try it. Our problem: it takes about 2 hours to get there from Greenwich. We are planning to hit them up in April while we’re hitting up Saybrook Point Inn to check out a food-centric weekend of awesomeness.

Noble Jay Brewing to Take Flight in East Lyme, CT

11 Dec

“So, I was thinking of an idea for a name,” said Mike Lincoln, owner and brewer of the up and coming Noble Jay Brewing Company, “but everything was taken. I looked it up . . . but I’d see that it was already a brewery! I wanted something unique, though, and that made me think of my mom. She passed away when I was a baby. Her name was Patricia Jay. So, I thought, how could I incorporate her name? I researched and found that Patricia and Patrick in Latin means Noble and Jay is her middle name—everybody called her Jay anyway. So, I figured that no one else was going to take that name for a brewery.”

Well, that answers how the name Noble Jay was created, but there are still lots of questions to answer. Luckily, we were able to talk with Mike about his plans for the brewery that is slated to open between 2015-2016 in East Lyme. So, stick with us, and we’ll take you through Mike’s brewing experiences, problems that he’s running into, his thoughts on CT beer, the beers that he’s brewing, some details on the brewery, and being a part of the CT beer community.

Collabo: Beer’d and Relic Brewing Create Nano a Nano

25 Oct

Nano-a-Nano Beer Relic and Beer'd Brewing of Connecticut

Nano a Nano.  It’s a play off the classic phrase, mano a mano:  man to man.  It’s also the name of a brand new beer that has been created by two Connecticut nanobreweries (get it now?) collaborating together.  We’re talking about Beer’d Brewing in Stonington and Relic Brewing in Plainville, creating a Black Belgian Rye IPA.  You’ll find the bottles for sale and on tap throughout Eastern Connecticut, but you’ll also have a chance to try both versions at the Nano a Nano Release Party.

Yes, you heard us right…both versions.  Both Beer’d and Relic created their own versions of Nano a Nano, so it’ll be really interesting to pick up any differences in the brews at Relic on 10/30 from 6-9.  And, guess what?  It’s free!
