Armada Brewing Beers
Cursed King IPA, B
Amada: The Spanish restaurant in Philadelphia that my wife and I frequent whenever we go down to see my parents.
Armada: a fleet of warships.
Armada Brewing: A one-man tenant brewery leasing space at Overshores Brewing in East Haven.
Amanda Hugnkiss: Classic phone prank.
Okay, enough. John Kraszewski, who calls himself “the Caption” of “the Armada,” is on “a crusade” (his word) to share his “Midwest style” beers back here in his home state of Connecticut.
He started out distributing his beers in large format bottles. He is intent on sticking to his sort of older style IPA’s. His marketing is on point, his branding is solid, and he seems to be everywhere. At least out of the gate.
A hiccup with his host brewery (the aptly named Overshores – an all Belgian brewery… Clean your hoses, boys!) in late 2016 somehow didn’t slow the advance of the Armada, but now in mid-2017, the ship seems to have been righted and it’s full speed ahead for Armada.
But let’s let the beer itself do the talking. As long as Chicago beer is better than Chicago “pizza”, we should be good.
