True, ridiculous story. I’m rewriting (and shortening) this page in the middle of 2017. The original stuff was written just after Two Roads opened.
And it was idiotic. Really and truly stupid stuff.
I was caught up in the idea that since Two Roads had tons of money they must not be “pure” or all that great. Like I said… stupid.
Good for them for having money. Great for them that contracting was (and is) a huge piece of their business plan. It is now crystal clear that Two Roads has known what they’re doing, every step of the way, since day one: Marketing, growth, distribution, events, brewers (Phil Markowski!) and, most importantly, the beer.
In a lot of ways, Two Roads is the best brewery in Connecticut. (In other ways it is not, and I could make a good argument either way.) Regardless, Two Roads should be the most respected brewery in the state.
They don’t make bad beer and they don’t make (much) fanboy beer. Which is FINE and SMART.
Much smarter than I was about them when they opened, that’s for sure.
