Beer’d Brewing Company – Brewer – BevNET.com Beverage Industry Job Listing

About Beer’d

We are an independent craft brewery based out of the American Velvet Mill in Stonington, CT, now open in a 2nd facility in Groton, CT. Officially considered a microbrewery, our 1,085 gallon/35 BBL combination brewhouses proudly produce a wide variety of brews each year – from our tried and true favorites to our experimental small batch brews. We make the most of our small production size by focusing on innovation and creativity – meeting regularly to come up with something new, exciting and unexpected for our customers.

We believe in making great beer for everyone, not just hop lovers and beer nerds (however, we can’t deny that many of us are totally both). We want to make craft beer accessible to everyone – to meet you where you are with a beer that pleases your palate, whether you’ve been drinking craft beer for years or this is your first sip.

It’s not about getting famous on the ‘gram. We don’t live the craft beer life because it’s popular – we’re in it for the long haul because that’s what we LOVE. We are passionate about bringing you bold, creative flavors and inviting beer lovers everywhere to call home in our hood.
