Brewed in Connecticut Using

Organic & locally grown Ingredients

Coming Soon

A collaborative beer project based in CT with a focus on using the best ingredients possible.

Our beers are brewed with care in small batches and available in very limited quantities. Our philosophy is to make the best beer using the highest quality ingredients.

Organic Ingredients


Grain is the primary ingredient in beer. Close to 90% of its contents, to be exact (besides water). Non-organic grain is often grown using synthetic herbicides, pesticides, fertilizers, and/or come from bioengineered genes (GMOs). This is the reason we use certified Organic Malted Barley, as much as possible. 

Local Ingredients

Locally Grown Ingredients

We use hops grown in Connecticut and Massachusetts as much as possible. Locally grown foods are fresh and using them benefits the local economy.

Why are organic ingredients our key ingredients?

The best ingredients for better tasting beer

We make absolutely no sacrifices when it comes to quality of ingredients. Organic ingredients are fresh and taste amazing.

No Chemicals!

Organic crops are grown without synthetic or chemical fertilizers, pesticides, and herbicides. Non-organically grown plants can retain some of those chemicals and can be harmful if consumed.

The Environment

Organic farming practices reduce pollution, conserve water, reduce soil erosion, increase soil fertility, and use less energy. Farming without pesticides is also better for nearby birds and animals as well as people who live close to farms.


Our name “Long River Brewing” pays homage to the Connecticut River – home to some of the northeastern United States’ most productive farmland and abundant natural resources throughout history.

Did you know: The name Connecticut is derived from the Mohican/Algonquin Indian word “quonehtacut” meaning long tidal river.
