From the "Land of Steady Habits"
##UPDATE## -due to untimely events and other circumstances, we do not see a clear path to opening at the Higganum location. We are still holding out hope, but that hope has all but faded away. It seems very unlikely that Steady Habit, in its current form, will exist at the end of all this. That doesn't mean by any stretch that we are "finished" It just means we need to regroup and chart a new course. Thank you all for standing by us while we agonizingly banged our heads against the wall at every turn. We honestly did everything in our power to get that building open but unfortunately there were too many obstacles in our way and COVID just pushed us over the edge.
We look forward to seeing everyone down the road very soon!
In April 2014, Steady Habit Brewing Company was established. It opened its doors to the public in January 2015, brewing on a 2.5 barrel system, in Haddam, Connecticut, just off the banks of the Connecticut River. Steady Habit was a "Grab & Go" growler fills only for nearly three years. The current ownership group purchased the brewery in April of 2017 and quickly filed the necessary paperwork to open up a full service tap room.
We also began to distribute our products across the state establishing over 250 accounts. By September 2017 we realized we would quickly outgrow the original location and began the long tedious search for a new home. Finally in May of 2019, with the help from our First Select Woman and our Town Planner, we found our new location, just minutes up the road in the same town. We purchased a brand new Alpha Brewing Operations 15 Barrel, fully automated, brew house that will be put into place in our new home.
We have been working on relationships across the country to expand our presence into new markets outside of our area so when our new system comes on line, we will be in the appropriate position move the increased product.
