Two Roads Brewing Sourcopia Oct. 25

Two-Roads-SourcopiaTwo Roads Brewing Company is making a splash in the Northeast this weekend with a triple-header of sour ales ready to drop at the brewery on Saturday, October 25 at noon. Headed up by Phil Markowski of Southampton Publick House fame, the Connecticut-based outfit will release Two Roads Kriek, Two Roads Gueuze and Philsamic for the event.

The details:

  • Kriek/Gueuze – $10 per 375mL bottle, 700 of each available
  • Philsamic – $25 per 750mL bottle, 500 available
  • Limit 2 bottles of each per person
  • All 3 beers will be on draft for the event
  • Lambic-style glassware will be available

Commercial descriptions:

Two Roads Kriek is re-fermented with sour cherries sourced locally from Staehly Farms in picturesque East Haddam, CT. There, our brewers hand-picked sour cherries from trees imported from France in the 1950’s. After brewing, the lambic is mixed with the cherries into oak barrels and aged for over one year until the right balance of sourness and cherry-like tartness is achieved.

Two Roads Gueuze has been a work-in-progress at our brewery for 15 months, maturing in oak barrels and undergoing a series of secondary fermentations to develop its characteristic sour, farmhouse funkiness. Honey from our own estate beehives was added to the bottles to aid in bottle conditioning.

Two Roads most unique beer to date – a beer made with 14-year-old Italian balsamic vinegar from Modena and aged in red wine barrels for 20 months. We are calling it “Philsamic” to celebrate Brewmaster Phil Markowski’s 25th year of craft brewing.

Two Roads Brewing Company is located at 1700 Stratford Ave in Stratford, CT.
