Grand Opening of the Hooker Test Kitchen at Mohegan Sun

Did you ever wish that there was a place where you could get local, fresh, and cutting edge, outside-the-box beers from Thomas Hooker Brewing Company on a daily basis? We did too, and with that we are very pleased to announce the grand opening of our Thomas Hooker Test kitchen! Located in the Mohegan Sun Casino, right in the Race Book, the festivities kick off at March 28th from 5 – 8 PM. After the grand opening the Test Kitchen will host our 3rd monthly open house on the final Friday of every month. In addition to this, the craft beer lounge we’ve created at the Test Kitchen will be open during normal Race Book times.

BrewingSystem-placedThe Test Kitchen will have five beers regularly rotating through the lines, including special offerings that will be available on-site only! Due to the limited nature of these test beers, we’ll change through batches quickly; this means you will be able to experience beer that defies conventional brewing wisdom and pushes the boundaries of the brewing norm every single time you come down. If you’re not feeling the special brews that we have on, we’ll always have our locally produced, fresh flagship beers present for consumption as well.

Our partnership with Mohegan Sun has been in the works for awhile now, and it’s been hard for us to keep it a secret –as we’re very excited to be offering our fans a chance to experience these new, wildly creative brews with us! Now, for the first time, you’ll have the chance to take a real part in our brewing process. Here’s how: as we cycle through the one-off beers, we’ll ask for your feedback. Based on your thoughts we may tweak the recipe and send the resulting beer back to the test kitchen, or the test beer may make its way into a full production line. Either way –as you drink Hooker beer at the Hooker Test Kitchen you’ll be helping us make brewing history by helping decide the fate of our beer!

moheganentranceThe Test Kitchen will make its Grand Opening March 28th at 5 PM and run until 8PM. During this special launch event you can get all the beer present for 50% off, as well as a few more surprises that we don’t want to ruin here. This is the next big step for us here at Thomas Hooker Brewing Company, and we hope that you’ll stop on down to help us celebrate!
