The Beer Collective’s Collaborative Beer Dinner (New Haven)
September 16, 2018 @ 5:00 pm - 8:00 pm
In honor of New Haven Craft Beer Week, The Beer Collective is holding a very special beer dinner featuring four of our favorite CT breweries. Collaboration is the name of the game, and this beer dinner will feature various inter-brewery collaborations between Fox Farm, Kent Falls, Lasting Brass and Counter Weight Brewing. Our first collaborative beer dinner will feature six beers, five courses, and every attendee will receive a Beer Collective gold glass. Tickets are $75 including taxes and gratuity.
Fox Farm Brewery is located on a thirty acre parcel of farm land in the town of Salem, Connecticut. The building that houses the brewery is a 1960’s barn that has lived many lives. After several decades housing a small dairy operation the barn fell into a state of neglect when the cows left. Fox Farm Brewing took over after years of sweat and planning and have been producing some of the best beers in the state in their year of existence.
Counter Weight‘s goal is to continuously honor long-held brewing traditions while exploring new and innovative methods to highlight each ingredient and delight the palate with every sip. While they are known to produce some of the best IPAs in the state, their passion projects are a true delight, as every wood aged beer has exceeded the former.
Kent Falls Brewing had similar starts to Fox Farm on a former dairy farm. The Camps Road Farm has been in continuous agricultural use for 250 years and is still home to some members of the Camp family. Kent Falls believes in reestablishing a connection between brewing and their agriculture in their area. They craft their beautifully soft farmhouse ales using solar power and their own house yeast culture. While they are often known for their farmhouse ales, they have been making some noise with their delicious IPAs as well.
Lasting Brass Brewing is located in the old Pinshop Building in Oakville, CT. Ed Silva built his reputation as a highly vaunted homebrewer and decided to honor his roots by setting up shop in a building with rich history near his life-long hometown of Waterbury. Despite not even being two years old, Lasting Brass has made marks on the CT beer scene with their great New England IPAs, stouts, and farmhouses.
The beer dinner will take place Sunday, September 16th from 5pm to 8pm. Tickets to the dinner will be very limited, so purchase your tickets quickly. If you miss out on a ticket to the dinner, don’t fret, TBC is reopening to the public after the dinner from 8:30pm until midnight to let everyone else taste some of the collaborations.
Beers and food pairings to be announced shortly.
