By March 25, 2019Connecticut, Top News

Two Roads Brewing Company opened its Area Two Experimental Brewing facility for a media tour on February 11. The state-of-the-art 25,000-square-foot facility is dedicated solely to the production of sour, barrel-aged and experimental beers. Visitors learned about its Lambic-style ales, a tequila barrel-aged gose, a bourbon barrel-aged cherry quad, a sour beer aged in whiskey barrels and an ale aged in a Calvados foudre, sourced from Normandy, France, and Kombucha, among other new creations led by Master Brewer Phil Markowski. Located adjacent to the Two Roads’ original brewing facility in Stratford, the addition of Area Two increases the Two Roads property to encompass 10 acres, which include The Hopyard, a large grass field for outdoor events and parties, hop vines and a botanical garden. Area Two has the capacity for 180 guests and features a tasting room, seasonal patio and rooftop beer garden. “We wanted to create a beer campus,” said CEO and Co-founder Brad Hittle, “where craft beer fans can spend an entire afternoon and evening experiencing a vast array of fermented beverages.”
