Branford’s Thimble Island Brewing Expands, Increases Beer Volume

By September 8, 2015Connecticut, Top News

Thimble Island Brewing Company has a new home in Branford, 16 Business Park Drive, just a mile away from its old address. Justin Gargano, CFO and Founder, opened at their previous location three years ago, where they were maxing out production at 20-25,000 barrels of beer each year. Now, in their new 3,350 square foot building, they have the capacity to brew about 45,000 barrels each year, with room for more growth. The new facility features a 30- barrel brew house vessel versus their original seven. Dave Morgan, Director of Warehouse and Distribution, said construction on the new facility began in February. The brewery also offers a tasting room and tours. A private room available to rent for events is set to open in the fall. “Expanding was a critical need in the industry,” Gargano said. “It’s a labor of love and a lifestyle, certainly not a job.”
