Cellar Fine Wines Launches War Flag Brewing Company

By February 24, 2017Connecticut, Top News, New Products
James McFillin, founder of War Flag Brewing Company, holds the War Flag tap handle, designed to reflect his passion for “prominent American symbols against tyranny.” McFillin chose to name his company after the American Revolutionary War’s Gadsden Flag, which was also the inspiration for the company logo depicting a snake and a barrel. The company supports The Wounded Warrior Project.

Cellar Fine Wines added Brooklyn-based War Flag Brewing Company to its craft beer portfolio. Founder James McFillin visited the Essex distributor in January to educate the sales team and help welcome the brand into the state. McFillin, a former Marine and longtime commercial real estate agent in New York City, launched the brand in 2014 after pursuing his personal interest in the craft beer brewing industry. War Flag’s American Pilsner, Grandmaster IPA and Lady Justice Stout are now available in state in 1/2 barrels, 1/6 barrels and 6-packs of 12-oz. bottles.
