Here's our small but growing team of folks who bring you Back East.

Tony Karlowicz
Co-Founder

Originally from Southington, CT, Tony and his family currently lives in Windsor.  A 2000 graduate of St. Michael’s College in Vermont, with degrees in business and accounting, Tony left college with a love for great beer and a passion for one day starting his own business.  After 12 years in the corporate world, Tony is thrilled to be devoting all of his time to Back East.  In his (minimal) spare time, Tony enjoys camping, golfing, and of course, spending time with friends and family and drinking great beer.

Edward Fabrycki, Jr.
Co-Founder

An engineer by trade, Edward began homebrewing in the early 1990’s.  Edward moved to San Diego in the late 1990’s, where he became immersed in the just emerging San Diego beer culture.  After moving Back East, Edward’s passion and respect for great beer continued, along with his dreams of someday operating a brewery.  A resident of Southington, Edward enjoys mountain biking, golf, and spending time with his family and friends.
