FOOLPROOF CRAFT BREWERY IS OPEN FOR BUSINESS

The latest addition to the New England craft brewing scene is now open for business: Foolproof Brewing Company (formerly High Jinx Brewing Company) has opened its doors.  The brewery produces three year-round beers, each designed with a particular experience or activity in mind.  Founded by Nick Garrison, Foolproof’s initial year-round offerings include Barstool – an American golden ale dedicated to a night out at the bar; Raincloud – a robust porter for rainy days; and Backyahd, an IPA for barbecuing and other outdoor activities.  The company also produces a limited line of high-end specialty beers, which rotate throughout the year.  Joining Garrison’s team are Foolproof’s brewmaster, Damase Olsson, formerly of Pennichuck Brewing Company and a graduate of the World Brewing Academy, as well as sales manager Kyle Pauly, formerly of Berkshire Brewing Company and Ithaca Beer Company.  The company plans to expand into Massachusetts and Connecticut and other markets throughout New England, eventually growing to a national level.
