A Visit to Hanging Hills

Thanks to our good friends at Hanging Hill Brewing Company, Joe Ploof and Brian Cox, for raising $4500 at this summer's REI West Hartford store opening to support trails, forests, parks … and CFPA.

Hanging Hills opened in 2016 and is the creation of Joe, Brian and their business partner, Scott Stauffer. Joe and Brian are graduates of the American Brewers Guild (and where they met in 2012). Hanging Hills works to create beers that embody a sense of adventure and mystery.

Hanging Hills has been a great partner for CFPA. They are committed to being both great brewers and stewards of the land. This year CFPA will be the recipient of Hanging Hills’ 1% for the Planet contributions. 

In August, Hanging Hills hosted a CFPA Insider Update for our members in Hartford County. Members got a free beer, a peek at the brewery itself, and time to chat with our Executive Director, Eric Hammerling, about the upcoming election and the constitutional amendment. Read more about the Protect Connecticut Public Lands Coalition and why you should vote yes on question 2!

What a great evening. Thanks for hosting us, guys!
