It’s the beer from Stratford-based Two Roads that had a festival named after it: Road Jam! This seasonal brew became a popular choice of people ready to chill throughout CT and the surrounding states when it was released in 2014. Red in color, a bit jammy in taste, and refreshing all over, their raspberry wheat ale just screams summer drinking. Well, guess people have really been noticing because Two Roads was one of 13 breweries that were given the status of having one of the Best New Beers of 2014 by First We Feast.
“One sip of beer makes the whole world kin.”
“To thine own yeast be true, and it must follow, as the ale to the stout, thou canst not be false to any beer.”
“Budweiser is the curse of God; craft beer is the wing therewith we fly to heaven.”
“Pleasure and beer make the hours seem short.”
So, what is The Shakesbeer Festival, you ask? A festival (the 2nd annual) built around great beer, live music, and craft food, put together to help raise money to reopen The American Shakespeare Theater in Stratford. Tickets are $40 for this year’s event at The American Shakespeare Theater in Stratford on August 23 from 1-7pm. Tickets can be purchased now, so why wait? For more details, check out our post from last year and their site).
Update: make sure you bring cash with you for the cheese melts!
Here’s a collaboration of awesome proportions, coming together to help make a difference and to melt away poverty. Just come by Two Roads Brewery in Stratford from 12 to 7 pm this Sunday, 3/30, drink some brews and eat some grilled cheese sandwiches. Yeah, that’s a pretty easy way to help out, huh?
If you’re into the specifics, Two Roads will donate .50 for each pint that you sell and Whole Foods Market of Fairfield will be donating all their profits from the cheese melt sales (cash only) directly to the Whole Planet Foundation. Here is a description of this worthy charity from their site:
“Whole Planet Foundation is a private, nonprofit organization established by Whole Foods Market. We provide grants to microfinance institutions in Asia, Africa, the Americas and the Middle East, who in turn develop and offer microenterprise loan programs, training and other financial services to the self-employed poor.”
Also, don’t forget to tweet up @WholeFoodsFAI and let them know how you “melt away poverty.” Make sure to use #meltawaypoverty in your tweet. By doing this, you’ll be entered into a contest to win a $50 Whole Foods gift card and some highly coveted Two Roads tour passes…plus, it’s also great to spread the word about helping out.

Our local b-ball team, the Bridgeport Bluefish, is hosting an event that’s sure to be pretty damn awesome. They are calling it FeBREWary with the Brewfish. Lolz, we love it.
The fun is going down on February 25 from 6-8 pm at Two Roads Brewery in Stratford. Not only will there be plenty of food and beer, but there will also be brewery tours and even a raffle that might land you some suite (oh yes, we did) prizes. Plus, won’t it be awesome to meet the Bridgeport Bluefish? They’ll be on hand!
The faithful were lined up early on March 23, 2013 for a shot…a chance at fortune. No, they weren’t waiting for Bieber or One Direction: they were waiting for Two Roads Brewery in Stratford to open at 9 am. The occasion? The first ever sale of Igor’s Dream, an Unorthodox Russian Imperial Stout that was created as a tribute to Igor Sikorsky. And it didn’t take long for the 25 oz bottles to sell out, either. 1,000 bottles (count them, one freaking thousand) sold in just three hours. Damn.
Beer don’t just make itself, bro…and it ain’t such simple stuff neither.
It’s not like you can just throw some malts and hops into a pot of water and get a killer brew a few minutes later.
So, like most of you out there, we’ll leave the complex process of making beer to the experts. Speaking of the experts, wanna meet some of them from Two Roads in Stratford?
Holy crap, we swore Two Roads Brewing Company in Stratford had been open for at least a few years, but no. It’s only been a year. Maybe we think that because they’ve crammed so many events and beer releases into those 365 days.
Well, add one more brew to that list! That’s right, come down to Two Roads today to get a pint, growlito, or even a growler of their brand new Anniversary Session IPA…it’s made with Mosaic and Azacca hops. Like any of their limited release beers, this will be sold out super quickly, so make sure to get down to Stratford.
