The Connecticut Section PGA and East Hartford Brewing Announce Ten Penny Ale, the Official Beer of the Connecticut PGA

SOUTH GLASTONBURY, Conn. (May 11, 2022) – The Connecticut Section PGA today toasted to a new partnership with East Hartford Brewing, a Connecticut-based brewery formed in 2020 that resurrected the history filled Old Burnside Brewery brand and their widely popular craft beer, Ten Penny Ale.

By way of a co-branding collaboration, Ten Penny Ale, craft-brewed to the original recipe, becomes the Official Beer of the Connecticut PGA, and East Hartford Brewing becomes the Official Brewery. Through this partnership, the mission is simple: Deliver a menu of crisp and refreshing beers to golf courses, retailers, and restaurants throughout Connecticut leading with “the Beer Drinker’s Ale,” Ten Penny Ale.

“Ten Penny Ale is a smooth, amber-hued mellow version of a Scottish Ale,” explained Jonathan Hoenig, Managing Partner for East Hartford Brewing. “It’s the perfect ale for golf enthusiasts; it’s easy to drink and it honors golf’s Scottish origins.”

“We are extremely proud to partner with East Hartford Brewery to help deliver a quality craft beer like Ten Penny Ale to the Connecticut golf community and beyond,” said Tom Hantke, Connecticut PGA Executive Director. “Not only does the team at East Hartford Brewery make amazing beverages for all golfers to enjoy, but they are also a 4th generation family business that through the decades spanned golf course design, construction, and restaurant ownership and management.”

During the 2022 season, East Hartford Brewing will be supporting the Connecticut PGA’s Pro-Pro Series, the PGA Pro-Officer, the 40th Connecticut Senior Open, and the PGA Charity Classic that is hosted by the Hartford Golf Club.
