Two Roads Brewery puts out call for ‘Conn Artists’


Are you and artist who loves to drink beer? Of course, you are!

Well, then, you should definitely get the skinny on Two Roads Brewery’s “Be a CONNartist” contest.

“To celebrate” its “manufacturing history,” Two Roads is putting a call out to drinking-age artists from Connecticut, Massachusetts, Rhode Island and New York to create a work of art in any genre “depicting Connecticut’s contributions to manufacturing, past and present.”

The winner’s art will be displayed on a 30-foot high fermenter inside the brewery and win a $500 Two Roads gift card. The runner-up will have their art on a poster at the brewery and receive a $250 gift card. Both will be unveiled at a large party in the fall.

Artists have until Aug. 31 to submit their work. Go here for submission rules.

Two Roads’ manufacturing history dates back to James Baird’s factory. Built in 1911, the facility produced blue jean rivets and buttons, Model T Cylinders, hat pins, zippo lighter components and many other items for everyday life in America from 1911 to 2006.
