STAMFORD, Conn. — Conor Horrigan is looking to tap into Stamford's beer culture when he opens his Half Full Brewery at 43 Homestead Ave. in the South End.
“It’s experiential. You drink a beer and it reminds you of certain experiences in your life,” Horrigan said in a press release.
He decided to get into the brewing biz after working in financial services, the release said. Horrigan gained experience working for New England Brewing, and will bring in a master brewer to help with his brewery.
Half Full currently plans to offer three flagship brews, a pale ale, a bright ale and an India pale ale. It will work on developing seasonal blends, and others as well, the release said. The 5,200-square-foot facility will include a tasting room, and will offer regular tours, the release said.
“It’s exciting to see the continuing and growing interest in Stamford as a place to locate for business and lifestyle,” said Bob Gillion, president of Signature Group, the company that brokered the deal to bring Horrigan’s brewery to Stamford.
The brewery has not yet announced an official opening date. According to its website, the beer maker will be getting all of its equipment by the end of April, and should open its doors soon after that.
