Stamford’s own Half Full Brewery has collaborated with Southport Brewing Company Stamford to create Stamford Ale. This beer is a Rye Ale that clocks in at an impressive 7% ABV and was created for a few reasons. First of all, beer is just damn awesome. Secondly, Stamford Ale was created as a celebration for American Craft Beer Week and CT Beer Week #1, going on from May 12-18. And, lastly, both Half Full and SBC wanted to help shift people’s focus onto Stamford as a craft beer city. Conor Horrigan, owner and Chief Beer Philosopher at Half Full told us recently, “Hartford and New Haven are known as being very crafty because of the brewery presence in and around those cities and so we wanted to highlight the fact that right here in our city, we have two breweries and a burgeoning craft beer scene when you consider the beer bars that we have or will have including Cask Republic, Coalhouse, and World of Beer.
So, want a taste of this collabo brew from Jen Muckerman of Half Full and Frank DelGreco of SBC ? Come on down to SBC Stamford on May 15th from 6-9 pm to find out! At that time you can taste Stamford Ale and you’ll also be greeted to a Stamford tap takeover featuring SBC and Half Full beer. Adding some more excitement into the mix will be live music from 9style Acoustic Duo with a crazy session of karaoke afterwards.
This will be a great event, bringing together two brewers and two breweries…and uniting a city in a common purpose. If you’re keeping track, this marks SBC’s second collobaration during CT Beer Week, the first being White Willi with Dave Wollner of Willimantic Brewing and Mark DaSilva of SBC.
