Two homebrewer teams have brewed and had their beers on tap at Fairfield Craft Ales as a result of their winning entries in our semiannual homebrew competition. Last spring, we had Paint It Black, a delicious porter formulated by Jim Cenatiempo and Chris Moise. And now, we have Monkey Wrench on tap and in cans, an imperial stout flavored with dark chocolate and bananas. The brewers of that one were Matt Laudicina, Chris Aiuto, and Jason Rancourt.
Before opening FCA, Mike and Joe were passionate homebrewers who loved being able to share their brews with friends, family, and frankly, anyone we could get to try them. We know how satisfying it is to have others enjoy your creation. That’s why we love running our homebrew contest. Aside from getting to sample some great beers made by excellent, committed homebrewers, it’s very fulfilling to give the winners a chance to share their beers with the world. The brewers’ excitement on our brew days and their launch parties remind us why we got into this in the first place.
So it’s time to do it again! Fire up the kettles and start brewing. We’ll accept entries during our regular business hours between Thursday, January 3, and Sunday, January 6. Winners will be announced Saturday, February 9.
