Stratford Brewery Bound for Success Down the Road

Two Roads Brewing Company is now the largest craft brewery in the state.

When it comes to choosing what craft beer to drink in Connecticut, there’s still time to change the road you’re on. In fact that road may have gotten a little easier to pick. 

Last December Two Roads Brewing Company opened its doors for the first time. The 100,000-square-foot facility and former U.S. Baird building located at 1700 Stratford Ave., Stratford, is now the largest craft brewery in the state producing a sea of suds at 150,000 barrels a year.

Offering up a variety of tasty brews like their 'Ol Factory Pils, Honey Spot Road white IPA, and heavy-hitting Road to Ruin IPA with an alcohol volume of 7.2 percent, Two Roads is already making a name for itself in CT.

When talking with co-owner Brad Hittle you could tell he was excited to be a part of the ever expanding craft beer movement the state has been experiencing in recent years.

"I've never had any doubts about this business," Hittle said. "We're making something people love."

Hittle said before they opened they brought in a few Brew Masters from Germany to help oversee operations on the floor, all of whom were ale drinkers, but when they got a taste of Two Roads ‘Ol Factory Pils that all changed.

“The guys from Germany loved our beer so much they finished a keg or two by the time their week was over. They said we had officially converted them to pilsner drinkers.”

But don’t take the Germans word for it. People everywhere are talking about Two Roads Brewery and their ever so popular tasting room.

They’re open Tues-Fri 3 p.m. to 8 p.m., Sat 12 p.m. to 8 p.m., and Sun from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m.

STFU, the place is great, at least someone is investing in this town. I wish them the very best of luck. The beer is good, the place is top notch, if you like paying higher taxes because business are running out of town go live in Bridgeport.
