For a two year old brewery that has become the biggest in the state, Two Roads Brewing Company in Stratford has been putting out impressive beer…especially when it comes to their special and limited release brews. Take Igor’s Dream, for example: when they held a special release event on January 25, hundreds of people lined up for hours to get their own bottles to take home—including us! And this year there is going to be a special release party with food trucks on 10/25 from 12-9 at the brewery where you can get to try and take home two lambic beers (Kriek and Gueuze) as well as the highly-anticipated Philsamic. Beer can be purchased by bottle (max of 2 per style) and will be on tap at the brewery while supplies last. Here are some descriptions from their site along with pricing:

Victory Brewing, Coalhouse Pizza, and OmNomCT = Bacon & Beer Dinner Heaven

27 Feb

Victory Brews & Bacon Dinner

When Gerard Robertson at Coalhouse Pizza told us he had something cool to share with us on Twitter, we had no idea how cool it would actually be.  He invited Danny and me to be guest chefs for his Victory Brewing Company dinner.  Well, what an awesome offer and we felt it would be a great opportunity to show that we could do more than just eat lots of food and write about it.  :)

The Creation of a Menu

First, we needed a theme:  bacon.  We decided that each course would offer bacon in some form.

Next, we needed to create appetizer, salad, pizza, entrée, and dessert courses.

With each course, we had to find a way to work in some awesome Victory Brewing Company beer.

We then figured out the recipes, working in the bacon and beer into the mix. 

Finally, we finished things up by pairing each course with a Victory beer.
