Wolcott, CT, April 16th, 2019 — Wolcott, Connecticut will soon be the go-to spot for all varieties of local and regional craft beers with the introduction of the Connecticut Brewery Collective at 1 Wolcott Rd. The CT Brewery Collective will launch on April 26th, 2019 celebrating its official partnership with Skulls Brew House, a brewery specializing in traditional German Ales and Pilsners as well as innovative and experimental IPAs. Over the next few weeks, several other select regional breweries will be joining the Brewery Collective,  giving local craft beer lovers the opportunity to discover a variety of new brews, featuring multiple styles, made by multiple brewers and breweries, working together on-location.

 “It’s an exciting time to be part of the craft beer community!” CT Brewery Collective Director of Business Development, Lauren Rua, said. “With the growth in demand for great beer at a great destination, it was only natural to develop a venue where a collective group of craft beer brewers can make their own recipes available for craft beer consumers across the region and state, all while providing it on-tap in one central location.”

The Collective will feature a wide selection of IPAs, lagers, sours and stouts. “The choices available at the Brewery Collective will provide a wide range of styles for the craft beer lover in all of us,” said Rua. “Moreover, it will provide a place to brew, a taproom and a homegrown customer base. We like to think of it as an incubator for innovation, creativity and brewer camaraderie.”

The following breweries will also be part of the CT Brewery Collective with each brewery having its own introduction date over the next several months:

  • Best Friends Lunch – Featuring a wide range of beers including IPAs, stouts, and ales.
  • Tipping Chair – You know them for their music scene and food seven days a week; get to know them for their beers. Styles include IPAs, NEIPAs, Stouts and Porters.
  • Shakesbeer – Brings the art of craft beer to the people by producing a line of  sophisticated, literary-inspired, yet easy-drinking beers.

“Each time a customer enters the Brewery Collective, they’ll be impressed by the options of craft beer available, plus there will always be something new for them to try,” Rua said. “It’s also a great benefit for micro-breweries and home-brewers who want to upscale their recipes using The Collective’s state-of-the-art equipment, allowing them to brew larger batches and diversify their portfolios while working with craft beer industry professionals to ensure the best quality product.”

The CT Brewery Collective will be open on Wednesdays from 5-9pm, Thursdays 5-9pm, Fridays 3-10pm, Saturdays 12-9pm and Sundays 12-6pm. The Skulls launch party will begin at 3pm on April 26th. For more information, visit The CT Brewery Collective website at
