Brewery Tour & Tasting at Two Roads Brewing Co.
Local HBS alumnus Peter Doering co-founded Two Roads Brewing Company and we are going to his brewery for a Sunday afternoon tour, tasting and discussion about the craft beer business & entrepreneurialism.
Join us from 3:00 - 5:00pm on 11/3/13 for a private tour, tasting and refreshments at this HBS alumnus co-founded brewery. Peter Doering (MBA 1987) is a craft beer entrepreneur and we thought it would be a great idea to take a trip to his brewery in Stratford this fall. The cost of this event (includes Beer, Sandwiches and Tour): $35 per person. Click here to buy tickets.
Two Roads Policy: only people 21+ years old can enter the facility.

Below is some background information on Peter and the brewery from the Two Roads Brewing website.
Peter spent the last nine years as CFO and Project Financial Manager at a large regional shipyard in Connecticut. While there he coordinated the construction of a 280-foot motor-yacht, the largest luxury yacht ever built in America. Ironically, early in his career, Peter took the road less traveled, working his way up the ladder to foreman on an offshore drilling ship in Angola. How that translated into an MBA is worth ponder, but Peter did go and get one from Harvard which he now uses to win games of “Liar’s Poker” and calculate cost per mile in his 2004 Ford Explorer. He makes sure the other three guys don’t give away too much beer to friends.
Two Roads isn’t just the logo on our brewery building, it’s our philosophy. Life always seems to offer up two ways to go. It just so happens, we prefer the one less taken and having some fun along the way – in our lives, our careers and especially for our beers! Now our “road less traveled” philosophy is being brought to life in the beers that we create and how we create them. Build a new building for our brewery? Nope. How about resurrecting a 100 year old factory in Stratford, CT? Here in the northeastern US, many of these proud, old brick factory buildings sit empty and we think that’s a shame. After all, it was in these factories that the things that made the American Dream come true were built. When we’re done cleaning, scraping and painting the old brick, wood and steel that was put together to stand forever, this old shell will be reborn with the latest state-of-the-art brewing equipment, fermenting equipment, packaging equipment and have the ability to produce the finest craft beers anywhere.And almost as importantly, it’ll be a place where beer lovers can come together in our second story tasting room or outdoor beer garden and share a story, a laugh and some great beer.Speaking of beer, the ones we craft will follow this same philosophy; unique renditions of classic beer styles created by master brewer Phil Markowski, a guy known for taking the road less traveled in every brew he makes. Whether it’s an IPA, Pilsner, Saison or a limited edition seasonal, Phil’s signature version of the beer styles he creates will be crafted for beer lovers who like to take a “less traveled” road, themselves. So, we hope to meet you somewhere on this journey. Here’s to taking the road less traveled, in life and beer!
