Olde Burnside Brewing Company - The Official Beer of LJF

Thank you to Olde Burnside Brewing Company for the generous donation of ales for the weekend! 100% of beer sales support Litchfield Jazz Camp Scholarships - Cheers to that!

Today's Rain is Tomorrow's Beer!

Aqua Vitae Veritas or "in living water there is truth." Beer is 90% water and it is our own private water source at Olde Burnside Brewing, coupled with the finest ingredients and our own unique brew process that allows us to achieve the highest standards in brewing our all-natural, full-flavored beers.

Founded in 2000, at the location of the historic Burnside Ice Co., in E. Hartford, CT,  Olde Burnside Brewing is an artisan brewery dedicated to producing well-balanced, high-quality brews with distinctive flavor and character.  Our hand-crafted traditional ales are brewed in small batches - never filtered nor pasteurized and contain no preservatives, additives or stabilizers.  For this reason, they must remain refrigerated.

Our four year-round offerings are available on draught or convenient 12-oz


Ten Penny Ale - our flagship, amber-hued Light Scottish Ale, malty in character

Dirty Penny Ale - Black and Tan style; 60%/40% blend of Ten Penny and California stout

Penny Weiz Ale - Belgian Witbier; delightfully refreshing, finished with a wee bit of orange zest and Scottish heather tips

Hop's Scot Ale -  an IPA of well balanced hoppiness

We invite you to enjoy our beers alone or pair them with your favorite foods, as you would a fine wine.  Please visit our web site for more information or to view our video on how we got started.  Tours are also available with a special tasting in our new "Brewtanical Garden."
