PRESS RELEASE: Stony Creek’s New “Save the Sound Light Lager” Supports Our Mission

BRANFORD, CONN. – May 12, 2022 Stony Creek Brewery, a leading regional craft brewery located in Branford, Connecticut, announces today the release of its new Save the Sound Light Lager. This new beer, developed in collaboration with regional environmental nonprofit Save the Sound, will highlight the value of shared natural resources and raise money to protect and improve the land, air, and water of Connecticut and Long Island Sound. For every purchase made, Stony Creek Brewery will donate a portion of the proceeds to Save the Sound.

“Save the Sound and Stony Creek Brewery share a love of Long Island Sound and the outdoors, so it was natural to work together,” said Ed Crowley, Sr., Founder, Stony Creek Brewery. “When we developed Save the Sound Light Lager, we thought about where it would be enjoyed. This crisp, light lager is perfectly suited to a day appreciating the outdoors. Everyone who purchases the lager will be helping to protect the outdoor places they enjoy.”

Save the Sound Light Lager is currently available exclusively on draft at Stony Creek’s taproom and select establishments. In the coming weeks, it will be available at retail locations across the Northeast in both 6- and 12-pack options. In keeping with Save the Sound’s mission, Save the Sound Light Lager will be available in eco-friendly packaging to minimize the use of plastic.

Save the Sound Light Lager is a unique Helles lager, crafted with the finest floor-malted German malts and balanced with a hint of earthy Tettnanger hops. The result is a bright and crisp beer with a slightly sweet flavor and a light mouthfeel – the ideal pairing for a warm summer day by the water.

“We are very excited to be embarking on this partnership with Stony Creek Brewery, whose leadership shares our passion for clean rivers and an abundant Sound,” said Curt Johnson, President of Save the Sound. “It’s a unique way to get people all across the region engaged in protecting the Sound and its rivers, fighting climate change, saving endangered lands, and restoring ecosystems. We hope Save the Sound Light Lager inspires people to reflect on the clean water that was used to brew it, the air they’re breathing as they enjoy it, and the things we can do together to protect these resources.”
