30 Mile Brewing Company ends its run at Old Saybrook

After five years in business, the 30 Mile Brewing Company in Old Saybrook has announced that it will be closing its doors this month.

“As a small business, we are not immune to the difficult economic conditions of the past 2 years. At this point, it is not viable for us to continue as we have been doing,” the statement read. “We opened 30 Mile Brewing in 2016 with the aim of providing a community gathering space for people in the Old Saybrook area to enjoy craft beer. We believe that over the past 5 years we have achieved this goal. We have met many amazing friends in our bar and have tried to be the best partner we can be for our community.”

Located a short distance from Old Saybrook station, 30 Mile Brewing opened in 2016. The idea was first floated in 2015 by Devon Landry, Justin Terribile and Luke Maynard.

The brewery concocts a number of eclectic beers with equally offbeat names such as the “Zombie Cure American Imperial Stout” or the “BBA Sappy Sappy Joy Joy BBA Maple Stout”.

Over time, 30 Mile Brewing Company beers have paid homage to a number of pop culture institutions, including “The Simpsons”, “South Park” and “Fight Club”. The brewery also hosted its own cup club called the Swig Society, which offered members exclusive 30 Mile benefits.

“We thank our Swig Society members and our community for the opportunity to live our passion and look forward to continuing many of the incredible friendships we have built over time,” the statement continued.

As of January 6, the Facebook post detailing its shutdown had received 197 likes and 66 comments.
