NHVIPA is a Collaborative IPA series by Armada Brewing & Erector Brewing. The Duo also known as “Brothers in Ale” created a beer for the love of their local city New Haven CT. The city is known for its world famous pizza and top university which is home to one of the most notorious secret societies. The Brothers In Ale created a society of their own and showcase their love for IPA with this delectable 6% potion. Each batch is made with the same base malt recipe and tweaked with a new combination of experimental and premium specialty hops and can be differentiated by its simple change in color to the label.

Gypsy Brewing Operation In Connecticut
Armada Brewing launched in January 2017 and has since been on a crusade to build a community around our fleet of beers. Founded by John Kraszewski a Connecticut native, the inspiration for Armada came during the time he lived in Chicago. John moved back to his home state to build the Armada. Armada Brewing is located at Connecticut's first collaborative brew space The Beeracks in East Haven CT where you can purchase cans to-go as well as pint's and flights of our beers.
