Thimble Island Brewing Company was founded in 2010 by two guys with a dream and no formal brew training. In July 2012 the first pint of our flagship beer, American Ale, was sold at KC’s pub in Guilford, CT. Later that year they opened the doors to the public and opened the original tasting room at 53 E. Industrial Rd. For three years the company continued to expand its distribution, product line and production capacity. In July 2015 the brewery was relocated .5 miles down the road to our current facility at 16 Business Park Drive. With over 30,000 sq ft of production space, a new 30 BBL Brew house, and a beautiful new tasting room, we were finally able to meet the demands of our beer-loving community!!
Today, we have grown to be the largest self-distributing micro-brewery in CT, with nearly 1,400 on and off-premise accounts. We currently offer 4 staple products in both draft and bottles, as well as numerous seasonal and specialty products in a combination of bottles, cans and drafts. Our products can be found throughout the state, as well as in Rhode Island.
Thimble Island Brewing Company is proud to welcome visitors to come see our place!! We have scheduled tours of our facility, a private event space, and our tasting room offers 16 rotating tap lines, as well as specialty casks and bottle-only releases.
