Foolproof Brewing to sell in Connecticut

PAWTUCKET - Representatives for city-based Foolproof Brewing announced Monday that the brewery will begin distributing in the state of Connecticut. The company's beers, which will be available for purchase in cans and draft beginning Oct. 28, are being distributed statewide by Northeast Beverage Corporation of Orange, Conn.

"We are thrilled to expand our distribution footprint into our neighboring state of Connecticut," said Nick Garrison, Foolproof's president and founder. "This is a big step toward growing Foolproof into a regional beer brand, and we hope this announcement will excite craft beer lovers across Connecticut and all of New England."

Foolproof, which began selling its beers in Rhode Island in January 2013, doubled its brewing production capacity in April and expanded distribution into Massachusetts in May. Connecticut is now the third state to carry the fledgling brewery's beers. The brewery is located on Grotto Avenue off Mineral Spring Avenue. Foolproof produces three year-round beers, which will be available in draft and 12-ounce can format across Connecticut.
