The Danbury-based Charter Oak Brewing beer line is now distributed statewide in Connecticut by Cellar Fine Wines. Cellar Fine Wines added the brewer’s 1687 Brown Ale, Wadsworth IPA, and Lights Out Stout in draft and bottle to its beer portfolio offerings. Charter Oak Brewing created a special batch of cellar-aged Lights Out Stout to celebrate the new partnership. The brewery’s artwork features Connecticut’s iconic Charter Oak tree in its logo. The brewery’s 1687 Brown Ale is named for the year that Connecticut’s Royal Charter was famously hidden within the hollow of the Hartford tree to thwart its confiscation by the English. The beer is an American style brown ale, at 6.2% ABV.
