Stratford, CT – Three rare beers, including a brand new sour, will be for sale during Two Roads’ Third Annual Nor’Yeaster beer release on Saturday, May 7. This annual springtime beer release will be held at Two Roads Brewing Company at 1700 Stratford Avenue in Stratford, CT.
Beer lovers who attend will be able to purchase up to two bottles of each style for a total of six bottles on a first-come, first-serve basis. Sales start at noon with doors opening at 10 a.m. 600 bottles of each will be available at $10 apiece.
If last year’s event was any indication, Two Roads doesn’t expect this year’s crop of beers to last long; they’re recommending arriving early if you’d like to get your hands on these new releases which include:
Henry’s Farm Double Bock aged in rye whiskey barrels; a barrel-aged favorite returning for its third springtime release in 22 oz bottles. This classic doppelbock style beer is barrel-aged, which adds a bold whiskey flavor along with subtle oak character.
For the second beer, Two Roads took their Road 2 Ruin Double IPA wort and fermented it with a Trappist Belgian yeast strain. They then put it into secondary fermentation with Brett for a style they’re describing as a “Franco-Belgian Wild IPA.” The result is “Road 2 Rouen,” named for the capital of Normandy in Northern France.
Two Roads’ last beer is the newest in their Lambic Style series: Framboise Noir. Made with fragrant black raspberries and aged in wine barrels for 20 months, the beer pours a lovely crimson color with unique aromatics derived from the black raspberries.
During the Nor’Yeaster event, all three of these beers will be available on tap in the brewery’s tasting room while supplies last. The brewery will also be hosting two local food trucks who will be selling delicious meals and snacks.
