We are an independent craft brewery based out of the American Velvet Mill in Stonington, CT, now open at a 2nd facility in Groton, CT. Officially considered a Microbrewery, our combined 1,085 gallon/35 BBL brew houses proudly produce a wide variety of brews each year – from our tried and true favorites to our experimental small batch brews. We make the most of our smaller production size by focusing on innovation and creativity – regularly putting our heads together to come up with something fresh, exciting and unexpected for our customers.
We believe in making great beer for everyone, not just the hop heads and beer nerds (though, we can’t deny that many of us are totally both of those things). We want to make craft beer accessible to everyone – to meet you where you’re at with a beer that pleases your palate, whether you’ve been drinking craft beer for years or it’s your first sip.
It’s not about getting famous on the ’gram. We’re not living the craft beer life because it’s popular – we’re in it for the long haul because it’s what we LOVE. We are passionate about bringing you bold, creative flavors and inviting beer lovers everywhere to feel at home in our ’hood.
“It’s nice because you can trust each other, you really know that person and you can build the dream together.” – Aaren
The Brains & Heart
Behind the Beer’d
“I get to work with my best friend, that part is amazing. Not many people get to do that.” – Precious
We Believe in Quality First
Our number one priority is consistent quality in every single one of our brews – even if it means pushing back a release or canceling it all together. We’ll do whatever it takes to make sure that every sip of every beer is just right. Our customers deserve nothing but the best, and we’re dedicated to giving it to them.
We Are A Family
Every employee at Beer’d is a member of our family. We care about their lives, their families, their fur-babies as if they were our own. It’s important to us that we maintain close relationships with every member of the team and that each person feels valued, respected and cared for. And we hope that our patrons feel as though they’ve been welcomed into the family as well!
We Are Humble
We have a point of view but don’t belittle our competitors or people who don’t share it.
We are a team that strives to make an awesome product and experience for our guests but we are balanced and humble. We acknowledge when we fail, admit it, embrace it and learn from it for the best interests of our team and community.
We Are Bold
We know what we like and what we’re good at – but we love getting creative and experimenting a little. We champion innovation and fresh ideas and pride ourselves on our ability to stand somewhere else entirely instead of just standing out in the crowd.
Meet The Fam
Our team is comprised of a few dozen oddballs, weirdos and nerds - just a few of whom are shown here! And we love every single one of them (and all of their fur babies!).
We are one big, slightly unusual family and we wouldn’t have it any other way.
