Situated on 10-acres in Stratford, CT, the 25,000 square foot state-of-the-art facility focuses on the wild and spontaneous. According to our Master Brewer and co-founder, Phil Markowski, “Area Two will be a brewery of boundless experimentation,” meaning that “we will continue to innovate, redefine and stretch the definition of beer.” Included at Area Two are a line of barrel-aged, lambic-style sour beers, beers aged in barrels obtained from distilleries, wineries and other sources as well as beers spontaneously fermented from local, airborne yeast. Beers age in large wooden or concrete tanks known as “foudres” for as long as two years to deliver the unique characteristics found in these highly complex beers.
Synopsis Cranberry Blood Orange – Synopsis is a 6.4% mix-fermented brew using wild and cultured yeast strains, aged on wood and abundantly fruited with real cranberry & blood orange for a complex, refreshingly tart beer. A mixed-fermentation process creates a subtle funk while the cranberry & blood orange brings a balance between bright acidity and lush, citrus flavors.

Aged for almost two years in American and French Oak barrels, this brew is made with over 4lbs of European black raspberries per gallon yielding a beautiful, ink-like appearance. It strikes the perfect balance of lambic sourness with dark berry flavors.
Aged for two years in oak barrels and richly fruited with French pears, Pear Lambic is created with the experimental, Area Two approach to the typical Lambic style. A captivating aroma and a fruity, woody flavor on the palate create the perfect balance of tart meets fresh pear character.
We took the black raspberries from our Black Raspberry Lambic and the Montmorency sour cherries from our Kriek and gave them life — well, a Second Life that is! We combined the fruit in a foudre with a two-year-old experimental brew unique to Area Two. After 8 more months of aging, this wild beer is the ultimate sour experience of black raspberry, sour cherry and funk! Level Up Your Sour Game!
Urban Funk is fermented using a one-of-a-kind mix of wild yeast — found right in our small city by the beer-loving scientists at a nearby university. Our blend is especially rare, having been captured during the 2012 hurricane, Superstorm Sandy. Fermented in concrete and aged in steel, the result is a totally experimental, totally sour and funky beer straight out of Stratford, CT.

This beer’s label may be mostly black and white but it’s flavor is vivid color. Brett Noir is fermented with Pinot Noir Grapes and Brett “B” Yeast, and then aged nine months in red wine barrels sourced from a venerated Napa Valley vintner. The result of this blockbuster is a complex thriller with funky fruit and matured grapes notes.

We took our Two Roads Persian Lime Gose, brewed it with agave and aged in authentic tequila barrels from Jalisco, Mexico. Time spent in these barrels imparts an oaky character and subtle notes of blue agave. A touch of fresh lime juice perfects this most delightful beer. Salud!
