Kent Falls Brewing Co.

As a farm brewery, our surroundings and experiences inform much of what we do. We aim to produce beer reflective of the land around us, the people that occupy it and the culture we wish to promote.

The brewery sits on, and is a part of Camps Road Farm; a 50 acre diversified farm in Kent, CT. The farm focuses on pasture-raised poultry and pork, along with our 1 acre of hops and acre and a half of cider apples destined for Neversink Spirits, our distillery located in Port Chester, NY.  Our partnership with Camps Road Farm and Neversink Spirits reflects our view of fermentation, innovation, and community: that most good things do not happen in isolation, and are enriched by diverse abilities and varied personalities. Our farm allows our brewery to function more efficiently, and fermentation itself is most productive when it is a partnership.

Kent Falls Brewery and South Farms have teamed up for the first stop on the Tour des Farms. Guests can grab a water (sorry no tastings – remember you are biking!) and can purchase a KFB growler for post race-time.
