Two Roads is proud to have its home in Connecticut, a state that has always contributed to significant industrial innovation. The brewery is located in the former U.S. Baird facility, built in 1911 to house James Baird’s factory that fabricated machines to make blue jean rivets and buttons, Model T Cylinders, hat pins, zippo lighter components, and many other items for everyday life in America from 1911-2006.
Seventy-five years ago this year, Igor Sikorsky flew the first helicopter less than a mile from our brewery. New Haven invented food we love: the hamburger and the lollipop. Bridgeport made the first submarine for the navy. Danbury made hats and Connecticut River Valley clocks were the height of sophistication. Those are just a few of a long, long list!
Two Roads Brewing Company, Stratford, CT.: Two Roads isn’t just the logo on our brewery: it’s our philosophy. Life always seems to offer up two ways to go. It just so happens, we prefer the one less taken and having some fun along the way. Our road-less-traveled
philosophy is brought to life in the beers that we create and how we create them.
