Special Guest Speaker

Tony Karlowicz

Owner, Back East Brewery

Back East Brewing Company is a Craft brewery located in Bloomfield, CT.  Founded by Tony Karlowicz and Edward Fabrycki, Jr., two cousins with a passion for great-tasting, high-quality beer.

Back East opened their doors in July 2012, and is now distributed throughout Connecticut and Western Massachusetts on draft and in cans.

Although originally from Connecticut, Edward began to home-brew while living in San Diego during the 1990s.  He eventually moved “Back East” to Connecticut in 2001, with the dream of someday opening a Craft brewery.  As a Professional Engineer, Edward enjoys the technical aspects of brewing.  Tony developed his appreciation for Craft beer during his college years in Vermont, and always imagined launching a brewery.  An entrepreneur at heart and a CPA with extensive experience in accounting, auditing, and insurance, Tony loves building a successful business from the ground up.

Tony and Edward began homebrewing and experimenting with different recipes in early 2006 and immersed themselves in all things Craft beer. Over this time, they developed several exciting recipes that they are proud to put the Back East name on.  Back East’s beers are proudly brewed at a small, but state-of-the-art, brewery in Bloomfield, CT.

Max Group Does 3rd Annual Negroni Week

CooperCocktailNegroni-7LowResCOCKTAIL CHIC:
Negroni Week Makes a Splash at The Max Restaurant Group

For thirsty cocktail lovers, there’s nothing that wets the whistle faster than a swanky, palate-pleasing drink, especially when paired with a delicious cause.

As part of the third annual Negroni Week, June 1-7, All Max Restaurant Group locations in Connecticut and Western Massachusetts, as well as The Cooper in Palm Beach Gardens, FL, will be serving up lip-smacking variations in honor of the world’s greatest sip. A portion of the drink proceeds will be donated to the Ct Children’s Medical Center in Hartford, and the Loggerhead Marine Life Center in Juno Beach, FL. “As far as perfect cocktails go,” says Brian Mitchell, Corporate Beverage Director for the Max Restaurant Group, “a great Negroni is the perfect drink to have when you can’t decide what to have – it hits all the senses with a balance of bitter-sweet, floral and fruity flavors…there is a reason why it’s been a classic for nearly 100 years.”

A creative riff on a traditional Americano (a blend of Campari, sweet vermouth, and club soda), the Negroni was born in 1919 when the adventurous Italian Count Camillo Negroni wanted to shake things up at a local Florentine bar. Instead of soda, he ordered gin be added to his favorite apéritif. After one sip, the count was hooked. The rest, according to bar lore, is history. We’ll drink to that.

About Negroni Week
Presented by Imbibe Magazine and Campari, Negroni Week launched in 2013 as a celebration of one of the world’s great cocktails, and an effort to raise money for charitable causes around the globe. From 2013 to 2014, Negroni Week grew from 100 to more than 1,300 participating bars around the world, and raised more than $120,000 for charities.
