Foolproof Brewing, a Rhode Island-based producer of hand-crafted beers, has expanded its distribution footprint to the state of Connecticut.

The brewery has selected Northeast Beverage, a Connecticut-based independent beverage distributor, to distribute its beers in the state from 28 October 2013.

Foolproof mainly produces three year-round beers, which will be available in draft and 12oz can format across Connecticut.

The three beers are Barstool, an American golden ale; Raincloud, a robust porter; and Backyahd, an IPA, which are sold at suggested retail price of $9.49 per six-pack.

Having started selling beers in Rhode Island in January 2013, the brewery doubled its brewing production capacity in April 2013 and expanded its distribution to Massachusetts in May 2013.

Connecticut becomes the third state to carry the brewery’s beers.

Foolproof president and founder Nick Garrison said they are thrilled to expand their distribution footprint into their neighbouring state of Connecticut.

"This is a big step toward growing Foolproof into a regional beer brand, and we hope this announcement will excite craft beer lovers across Connecticut and all of New England," Garrison added.

Rhode Island Distributing president Ken Mancini said they are proud of their collaborative partnership with Nick and his Foolproof team in Rhode Island.

"We are equally excited about the opportunity for Foolproof’s brands in the Connecticut market," Mancini added.
