Overshores Brewing Company to Begin Production Summer 2013: CT’s First Belgian Style Brewery and Winner of 2012 CPTV Craft Beer and Chili Challenge moves to East Haven and will soon begin operations

East Haven, CT: Overshores Brewing Co., Connecticut’s first and only dedicated Belgian style brewery and the first place winner at the 2012 CPTV Craft Beer and Chili Challenge, announced today its plans to begin commercial production of its award-winning beer this summer. Overshores recently moved its operations to East Haven and is in the process of building out its production facilities. Overshores Brewing Co. will be producing its three signature beers—the Simpel, the Tripel Brun, and the Belgique du Noire—for shipment beginning in the second half of this year.

Overshores beer has been long awaited by beer connoisseurs around state since the start-up debuted at the 2011 CPTV Craft Beer and Chili Challenge and stood out as the third place finisher in a field of over 70 breweries, including a number of true Belgian imports. In 2012, Overshores returned to the event and was awarded first place, beating over 85 other established breweries.

“After several years of refining our beers and securing financing, we are thrilled to have moved to East Haven and begun the build-out of our production facility,” said Christian Amport, founder and president of Overshores Brewing Co. “Our Belgian style beer has received such a warm welcome in Connecticut and it is satisfying to know that in a few short months people will be able to purchase it directly from their local bar or liquor store.”
