Southport Brewing Company taps into the growing interest in craft beers
It's hard to believe that in affluent Fairfield County, Southport Brewing Company, the home of the Hoppy Hour, is the sole brewery and brewpub. Known as SBC, Southport Brewing Company, which has five locations around the state, is enjoying craft brewing's current vogue. Nationally, sales of craft beer climbed 15 percent in the first half of 2011, according to the Brewers Association, which represents microbreweries.
