The Half Full Brewery Story
The story behind the creation of Half Full Brewery is quite interesting and even more inspiring. At 25 years old, the current owner of the brewery had a successful job working on Wall Street. However, he knew it didn’t make him happy. After contemplating his “quarter-life crisis,” he took off on a trip around the world and found the inspiration he was desperately searching for. During his journey, he planned the ideas for Half Full Brewery with the goal of creating a place for people like him to come and feel inspired.
Upon his return, he earned two masters in business and beer at the University of Connecticut and started home brewing with his family. Just a few years later, in 2012, Half Full Brewery poured its first beer. The brewery and its team continues to tell the story about dreamers and doers and celebrates the victories and challenges encountered along the way.

The brewery has three menus to choose from, some of which change periodically. The Inspirational Series contains their year-round selections that boast unique flavors and celebrate the pursuit of one’s happiness.
