Tidal River Brewing Company is owned and operated by Geoffrey Mattheis. I have been an active member in the Connecticut Beer Trail community for many years. With my wife, Mary, I have the unique opportunity with the help of friends and family to start Canton's premier Community brewery.
Tidal River Brewing Company is bringing small batch craft beer right to the heart of the Farmington Valley. Canton has a great history of local artisanal crafts and an environment of close-knit community, I am proud to bring the world of craft beer here.
Producing a wide variety of good beers and experimenting with new stuff all the time will keep the brews fresh and fun to enjoy. I really enjoy producing solid, easy to drink beers that will delight the palette. Honey Hefeweizen? sure! Single-hopped galaxy pilsner? you got it!
Many local restaurants and brew pubs have expressed an interest in carrying our brews on taps, keeping it fresh and ready. You'll be able to experience our favorite beers while enjoying local cuisine and sharing space at local bars.
Located in the Canton Industrial Park right off of RT 44, Tidal River Brewing Company is accessible and ready to fill growlers and give tastings. The 2000 sq ft space affords plenty of room for initial opening and for future expansion, accommodating the 3BBL brewhouse and startup fermentor equipment. With a small tasting area and fun environment, you'll be able to taste great beers and take your favorite home with you.
Opening a brewery comes with some special challenges that go above and beyond other small businesses. Apart from equipment and lease requirements, there are all sorts of licenses and various fees associated with the opening process. Your donations will go towards off-setting those initial opening costs and allow Tidal River Brewing company to hit the ground running and successful. Your donations also come with some kick-ass exclusive rewards. Come be a founding member of Tidal River Brewing Company and make our Canton opening great!
