The Beer'd Brewing Co.
What is The Beer'd Brewing Company? It is an amalgamation of art and science. A genuine local offering. A variance from the established norm. The Beer’d Brewing Company is the brain child of Aaren Simoncini. Brewing hand crafted ales in extremely small batches, The Beer’d Brewing Company will revisit the rich history of the South Eastern Connecticut, and pay homage to the highly skilled craftsman that created the foundation of this great community.
