Meet Beer'd Brewing. Aaren Simoncini and Precious Putnam are the couple that makes up The Beer'd Brewing Co. and they're putting out some of the most well-balanced and flavorful beers this guy has ever tasted. The proof? Connecticut Magazine just named them the best brewery in Conecticut, which is HUGE. Get your hands on their double IPA Hobbit Juice and get ready for a juicy, stone fruit, white wine, clean, and refreshing beer that will show you why. Seriously. I want more. Now.
What we really love about The Beer'd Brewing Co. is their genuine and whole-hearted focus on producing a local product and building their beer community from the inside out - or, as Aaren puts it: going deep and not wide. It's a great mantra, and although it means that many around the country will have a hell of a time getting their hands on Beer'd beers, those who are lucky enough can really see the labor of love this "liquid art" is for Aaren.
As for now, Beer'd is only available in the brewery and in a growler. But, thanks to a couple recent collaborations with another favorite brewery of ours, Night Shift Brewing, some craft beer aficionados in other parts of the country will get to sample a little piece of what Beer'd has to offer.
We loved spending time with Aaren and Precious and know that you will too!
