Raise a pint for the environment

Aspetuck Brew Lab partners with Aspetuck Land Trust

Aspetuck Brew Lab will be donating $1 for every pint and $2 for every 64oz growler of beer sold on Friday, April 22 to Aspetuck Land Trust in recognition of Earth Day. The 7-barrel brewery, owned and operated by husband/wife team Peter and Tara Cowles from Fairfield, features a 50-person taproom serving beers for on-premise consumption and filling growlers to go. Having worked for the Land Trust for almost 10 years before starting the Brew Lab, Tara is thrilled to support the local non-profit on Earth Day. “We have been so warmly welcomed by the community that we feel it’s important to give back, and the Land Trust is a great partner for Earth Day.”

The brewery takes its name from its water source, the Aspetuck water shed. “Aspetuck literally means ‘river from a high place’ in an Algonquin language,” said Peter. “We strive to take beer to a higher place and are proud to be the first brewery in Connecticut’s largest city since the 1930s.”

While the brewery is newly opened, Aspetuck Land Trust is celebrating its 50th Anniversary. Tax deductible donations make possible the preservation of local open space from development so people can enjoy the great outdoors and wildlife. The Land Trust has preserved over 130 properties on 1,700+ acres in the towns of Westport, Weston, Fairfield, Easton, Redding, Wilton and Bridgeport. This includes 45 trailed nature preserves and 40 miles of hiking trails maintained for the public. To learn more or to make a contribution, visit aspetucklandtrust.org.

The brewery is located at 3389 Fairfield Ave and is open Friday 5-9 p.m., Saturday 1-8 p.m. and Sunday 1-6 p.m., and the facility is available for private functions. Food is not offered, but customers are welcome to bring their own or order from menus of neighborhood restaurants. Aspetuck Brew Lab beers are also available at select local bars and restaurants. Visit aspetuckbrewlab.com.
