New fresh-hopped brown ale; Harvest Hootenanny

This Thursday, we’re releasing our fresh-hopped brown ale, Brown-Eyed Girl. We made it with hops from Mike’s backyard and from the Connecticut Agricultural Experiment Station in Hamden, which is trying to determine whether Connecticut could support a hops-growing industry. It’s a tasty, chocolatey treat.

Mug club members get $1 off their first pour of Brown-Eyed Girl all weekend. So does anyone who wears a Halloween costume (but no creepy clowns please).

On Saturday, Joe will be at the Black Rock Farmer’s Market’s 3rd Annual Harvest Hootenanny. Walrus & Carpenter will be roasting a pig!

Also, mug club memberships are available for $75 per year. You get:

  • A mug club membership card that expires one year after your date of purchase
  • A 20-oz. pour for the cost of a pint
  • One free mug fill during the week of your birthday (new benefit that will also be given to current mug club members)
  • One free empty 32-oz. Fairfield Craft Ales logo growler (you have to pay for fills)
  • 10% off any purchase of Fairfield Craft Ales merchandise at the brewery (new benefit that will also be given to current mug club members)
  • Invitations to “first taste” parties for new beer releases, at which you’ll get $1 off your first mug fill (discount is a new benefit that will also be given to current mug club members)
  • First dibs on subsequent year’s membership slots (but you must renew on time)

  1. Special request! Any chance to consider bottling one or two of “Hard to Handle”? I’ll be in Fairfield for thanksgiving but not during your hours that you are open! Would love to try!

    Thanks! Andre
