Foolproof Brewing Company accounted on October 21 that it will begin distributing in the state of Connecticut. The company’s beers, which will be available for purchase in cans and draft beginning October 28, are being distributed statewide by Northeast Beverage Corporation, Orange, CT as reported by Brewbound.
“We are thrilled to expand our distributions footprint into our neighboring state of Connecticut,” said Foolproof’s president and founder Nick Garrison. “This is a big step toward growing Foolproof into a regional beer brand, and we hope this announcement will excite craft beer lovers across Connecticut and all of New England.”
“We are enormously proud of our collaborative partnership with Nick and his Foolproof team in Rhode Island,” said Ken Mancini, president of Rhode Island Distributing Company. “We are equally excited about the opportunity for Foolproof’s brands in the Connecticut market.”
The brewery, which began selling its beers in Rhode Island in January 2013, doubled its brewing production capacity in April and expanded distribution into Massachusetts in May. Connecticut is now the third state to carry the fledgling brewery’s beers.
Foolproof produces three year-round beers, which will be available in draft and 12 oz. can format across Connecticut. These year-round offerings include “Barstool,” an American golden ale dedicated to a night out at the bar; “Raincloud,” a robust porter for rainy days; and “Backyahd,” an IPA for barbecuing and other outdoor activities. The suggested retail price for Foolproof’s year-round beers is $9.49 per six-pack.
