Meet the Silk City Fest 2023 Brewers

2nd Bridge Brewing Co.

2nd Bridge Brewing is a concept we came up with for local and regional fans of crafted fresh beer in our hometown of Manchester, CT at the historic Hilliard Mills. We are focused and dedicated to hop forward ales, porters, and stouts, coffee and iced teas. We figured a place to enjoy it, or a visit to take some with you was a great way to live and give. A passion for the freshest beer with a respect for the art to brew something great with. We want to create a haven for the soccer enthusiast that would like to share with their fellow community on watching matches live together. A dream my late brother and team mate shared. We look forward to tickling your taste buds. Cheers!

East Hartford Brewing Group

East Hartford Brewing Group

East Hartford Brewing was built on the solid foundation and the history of Old Burnside Brewery, but we’re looking to create a new and exciting brewery experience in the eastern corner of the state. While the past couple of years have taught us all that the world is unpredictable, one thing has remained the same – craft breweries are here to stay, and we invite you to find comfort in that, and in the quality of our brews as a constant in a time of change.

New England cider Company

New England Cider Company

New England Cider Company has been in business for 9 years and is the largest craft cider brand in Connecticut. NECC ciders are made with real fruit and no added sugar. We’ve offered staple fruit flavors like Apple, Blueberry, and Strawberry all the way to novelty flavors like Maple, Basil, and Spruce.

Quiver Spirits

Legend has it that the recipe was created by Benedictine Monks at the Nesvyzius Monastery (who says monastery life is sedated?!) which was founded in the 16th century in the Grand Duchy of Lithuania. It became popular among Lithuanian Nobility and today is a wildly favorite family concoction with a coveted secret family recipe that has been passed down through the generations.

Our recipe started on Grandma (Bobute) Genovaite Sriubaite-Setikas’ stovetop as a special drink she and Grandpa (Senelis) Antanas made for friends and family. We still make it the same way, using only whole spices, wildflower honey, and pure grain neutral alcohol. Lovingly blended with a mysterious array of earthy spices and a touch of naughty…

Stafford Cidery

HAND-CRAFTED HARD CIDER DESIGNED FOR TASTE, SMOOTHNESS, AND QUALITY. We pride ourselves with creating fun ciders that are easy to drink, easy to share and fun to talk about! Husband and Wife, Dan and Jodi started Crazy Cock Cider as a way to create one of their favorite drinks. And now they want to share it with you!

Witchdoctor Brewing

We have the cure for what ales you. We brew a flavor for everyone! From the water we start with, to the ingredients we choose, to the temperature we ferment and the chemistry of the whole thing… we craft our creations with love, every step of the way!

Can you have too many brew choices? We think not! In addition to the above breweries, we’ll be offering curated “guest beers” from others. There won’t be brewery representatives pouring them, but it’s not like we don’t know how.
