How it will work here starting August 13th at Fat Orange Cat Brew Co.

We are licensed and permitted to serve tastings and growler fills only on the premises.

When you arrive, you can buy our tasting glass for $5.00 to bring home and enjoy, and you’ll get four Fat Orange Cat poker chips to trade in for the tastings of your choice. If you would like, you can then purchase our growlers or bring your own and buy a fill or two or three or four, etc.

For a glass of our beer out on the town, we will be on tap in several great places TBA.

Thank you so much for your support!

Small State Great Farms.

Our first batch of Jalapeno Jack soon to be brewed with 100% Connecticut peppers, thanks to DeFrancesco Farm in Northford, CT. And yes, these photo shoots are fun. Cheers!

Behind the scenes: Still not exactly put together but the beer is ready.

Beer and great music. What more do we really need for a party? We are so psyched to thank many people and also welcome new folks this coming Sunday, July 24 at 2 PM. We are still shooting to officially open August 6 for tastings and growler sales, but have a few things to do before we can nail down a date. Cheers, and many thanks!

We’re so close now!

We are still shooting for an August 6 opening, and welcome all here for our thank you party on July 24th.

Today we brew (and drink a little) Jalapeno Jack, then tomorrow head for one night to check in on family in Belfast, ME. Beautiful coastal town and amazing beer at Marshall Wharf Brewing Company (Maeve’s favorite).


Soft Opening Thank you Party: Sunday, July 24 at 2PM.

The official selling of our beer opening is pushed back to August, but we want to say thank you to our supporters and welcome new folks as well with a party.

We will be serving Ultimate 57 (double IPA), Positive Waves (IPA), Surfside 6 (pale ale) and Jalapeno Jack (cream ale).

We are so psyched and grateful to Seat Of Our Pants (acoustic Americana/Folk/Blues/Bluegrass/Country/Rock) for coming out and playing for this party!  (See

Save the date! Cheers!
