Connecticut Getting New Craft Beer Option

A Rhode Island-based brewer, Foolproof, is expanding its footprint in the northeast.

Craft beer drinkers are gonna love this: they'll have a new brew to try starting Oct. 28.

Pawtucket, Rhode Island-based Foolproof Brewing Company announced Monday that it will begin distributing in Connecticut. Its beers — in cans and draft — will be distributed statewide by Northeast Beverage Corporation, which is located in Orange, Conn.

In a press release announcing the news, Foolproof’s president and founder Nick Garrison said, “We are thrilled to expand our distributions footprint into our neighboring state of Connecticut."

“This is a big step toward growing Foolproof into a regional beer brand, and we hope this announcement will excite craft beer lovers across Connecticut and all of New England.”

What Are Foolproof Brews All About?

According to a company statement, "Foolproof Brewing Company produces high-quality, hand-crafted beers designed with specific experiences in mind. Whether it be watching a baseball game, sitting at home on a rainy day, or just catching up with friends at the local pub, Foolproof’s goal is to create unique and fulfilling beer experiences."

The release goes on to state:

Foolproof produces three year-round beers, which will be available in draft and 12-ounce can format across Connecticut. These year-round offerings include:

  • “Barstool,” an American golden ale dedicated to a night out at the bar
  • “Raincloud,” a robust porter for rainy days
    “Backyahd,” an IPA for barbecuing and other outdoor activities

The suggested retail price for Foolproof’s year-round beers is $9.49 per six-pack.

The brewery, which began selling its beers in Rhode Island in January 2013, doubled its brewing production capacity in April and expanded distribution into Massachusetts in May, according to the release. "Connecticut is now the third state to carry the fledgling brewery’s beers," it states.
