About Us

Our Story

Back East Brewing Company is a Craft brewery and tap room located in Bloomfield, CT.  Founded by Tony Karlowicz and Edward Fabrycki, Jr., two cousins with a passion for great-tasting, high-quality beer, Back East opened their doors in July 2012 and is now distributed throughout Connecticut and Western Massachusetts on draft and in cans.  

Although originally from Connecticut, Edward began to home-brew while living in San Diego during the 1990s.  He eventually moved "Back East" to Connecticut in 2001, with the dream of someday opening a Craft brewery. Tony developed his appreciation for Craft beer during his college years in Vermont, and always imagined launching a brewery. 


Tony and Edward began homebrewing and experimenting with different recipes in early 2006, and immersed themselves in all things craft beer.  Over this time, they developed several exciting recipes that they are proud to put the Back East name on.  Back East’s beers are brewed at our small, but state-of-the-art, brewery at 1296 Blue Hills Avenue in Bloomfield.  

Stop on in, have a pint, and find your way back to Back East.
