Tony Karlowicz ‘2000/Back East Brewing Company

Tony Karlowicz ‘2000 is the co-founder of Back East Brewing Company, based in Southington CT.  The craft brewery, which Tony stated with his cousin Ed Fabrycki, is only the sixth in Connecticut.  Tony reports that he and Ed have been hard at work raising money from family and friends to get the business launched.  A recent report on Back East Brewing in the Meriden Record Journal noted that Karlowicz and Fabrycki have already secured a distributor and plan to produce 10,000 barrels to ship throughout Connecticut in its first year of operation.  Their longer range plan is to expand throughout New England.  You can read more about Tony’s new venture at Back East’s web site http://www.backeastbrewing.com or on its Facebook page, http://www.facebook.com/backeastbrewing.
