Stewards of the Land Brewery is a true Connecticut farm brewery that takes you back to a time when taverns brewed their beer with fresh, locally-sourced ingredients. We are the latest addition to the DeFrancesco Family Farm, which brings you five generations of experience in sustainably cultivating the land. The old saying goes, “if you want to make good pizza, you need good water.” The same is true for beer! We brew our small-batch beers using the Farm River aquifer. We also use ten classic and new varieties of hops cultivated in our very own hop yard. As a true farm brewery, at least 50% of our ingredients are grown within the state. To date, there is no other Connecticut brewery that uses predominantly locally-grown ingredients. For ingredients that we do not produce, we turn to other Connecticut farmers with whom we’ve worked for years to develop products of the highest quality. You can enjoy our beer knowing that you are supporting the environment and the local community. Follow us on Facebook and Instagram to see ongoing renovations as we restore a 19th century farmhouse for our taproom. Keep an eye out for information about special events leading up to our grand opening, which is scheduled for midsummer. From our farm to your glass, cheers!
