Back East Brewery Announces Shad Derby Pale Ale

Bloomfield, CT – Back East Brewery will honor the Windsor Shad Derby Festival with Shad Derby Pale Ale, a new American Pale Ale brewed with Centennial hops.

Back East Brewery co-founder and Windsor resident Tony Karlowicz cites the Festival’s meaningful and long standing history in the area. “It’s the perfect match when you think of Back East and coming back home as the Festival always takes place every May in Windsor”.

Windsor Shad Fest Bureau President John Jary agrees with Karlowicz adding that “the volunteers and civic organizations involved in the Shad Derby Festival are truly humbled by this honor from Back East Brewery” and look forward to seeing the Shad Derby Pale Ale in the area.

Karlowicz also notes that a portion of the proceeds will benefit “Windsor’s Most Beloved Festival”. This limited edition beer will be available at Back East Brewery (beginning Friday April 18th), participating bars/restaurants in the next few weeks, and in the beer garden at this year’s Shad Derby Festival on May 17, 2014.
