Lock City Brewing Company is a microbrewery that specializes in specialty handcrafted beers such as New England style India Pale Ale's, Stouts, and seasonal beers. We currently sell our beer in Connecticut only but will shortly distribute to New York and New Jersey.
Our brewery is in the original Yale and Towne buildings in an area that is under redevelopment. Lock City was popular throughout the late 19th and early 20th century because of the Yale & Towne Manufacturing Company. Founded in 1869, Yale and Towne was an innovative producer of locks. By 1892, Yale and Towne employed approximately one-fourth of Stamford's population. In its heyday, Yale and Towne took up the entire area between Pacific, Henry, Canal, and Market Streets in South End.
