$5 pours all day Father’s Day!

Buy dad a beer or three to celebrate Father’s Day. At FCA, we’ll be pouring $5 pints and tulips for everyone all day.

Still haven’t gotten dad a gift? How about a gift card or a mug club membership? Or stop in any time we’re open from Thursday through Sunday to pick up some cans. Under a new Connecticut law, you can now buy up to three cases directly from the brewery.

January homebrew contest winners

Fairfield Craft Ales announced the winners of its January homebrew contest live in the tap room on Saturday, February 9.  From a field of 25 entries, these top three winners emerged:

First place: Oatmeal stout brewed by Matt Knight and Mike Joshi. Matt and Mike will join us to brew their beer on our system in the coming weeks.

Second place: Dry-hopped saison by Ben Skerl. In addition to his fine-looking red ribbon, Ben took home a $50 gift certificate to Fairfield Craft Ales.

Third place: Winter ale by Raymond McCarthy. Ray won a $25 gift certificate.

Congratulations to all our winners, and thanks to everyone who entered. We enjoyed tasting the fruits of your labors, as always, and are glad you shared them with us.

Trivia Thursdays at Fairfield Craft Ales

Hey smartypantses! (We think that’s how that’s spelled.) Come down to Fairfield Craft Ales at 724 Honeyspot Road in Stratford, Connecticut, every Thursday night for trivia and beer. The winning team gets $20 off its tab for the night. Plus bragging rights, of course.

We have everything you need—answer sheets, writing implements, beer, wine, hard cider, snacks, music between rounds, and an overall good time. Just bring yourself and your smartest friends.

The fun starts at 7:30 pm. We start handing out picture round sheets a little earlier, so get here early to get a head start and a good seat.
