What is Dark Side?

Dark Side Brewing is two friends on a mission to make some of the best home-brewed beer in Connecticut. We specialize in creating unique, inspired, and expressive farmhouse and wild ales, along with a variety of other barrel aged beers. Our wild beer program has been operating for two years, focused on barrel fermented, blended, and mixed fermentation ales aged on various fruits.

We have a passion for brewing lagers, pilsners, and beers that are easy to drink. Everything we brew is meant to be shared.
