The Rotary Club of Woodbridge presented its Business of the Year 2020-2021 award to New England Brewing Company. Owner Rob Leonard accepted the award at the club’s annual banquet on June 17th.
The New England Brewing Company is recognized throughout the community for helping with local activities. Rob says, “The social and cultural events around the New Haven area (and throughout the state) have given us a lot of support over the years. We invest and donate to these events and happenings, showing gratitude and offering a hand…and beer.”
In 2001, Rob Leonard purchased the South Norwalk company and started the journey to the success it is today. He began brewing in Woodbridge on Selden Street but soon outgrew the premises and moved to the current location on Amity Road. He has expanded several times and set up a pandemic friendly outside venue last year which is still popular as customers enjoy the outside areas.
Rotary presents this award to a business in the club area that follows the four-way test principles: Is it the Truth? Is it fair to all concerned? Will it build goodwill and better friendships? Is it beneficial to all concerned?
