Homebrew store near East Haven gets go-ahead to open brewery

March 28, 2014 by  

Recently, a major brewer announced that it had received permission to go ahead with plans to open its own brewery in the area, near East Haven

Maltose Express, in Monroe has been at the forefront of the homebrew scene for more than two decades. The soon to be open brewery will be a new direction for the shop. It will not only sell beer-making supplies, but let customers sample its own beer. Once the date for the opening is set, the homebrew store could advertise it by using postcard printing.

In the meantime, the store will continue to offer classes and events to the public. It has several workshops planned in the coming weeks and through the spring.

On March 15, it held a Making Wine class and, this weekend, the store will offer a beekeeping class. Designed for beginners, the class will cover everything a new beekeeper needs to know, from how to install a hive to the different parts of the hive. It will also go over the different roles bees play in the hive and the importance of registering it with the state, as well as covering the range of roles bees play in sustaining our crops and environment.

The class will be held on March 29 at 10:00 am and costs $40.
