Thimble Island Brewing Company “Taps” Comcast Business to Enhance Connectivity Services and Help Power the Company’s Growth

Comcast Business is providing Thimble Island Brewing Company, a family-owned brewery and brewpub in Connecticut, with Comcast Business Ethernet Dedicated Internet, as well as Comcast Business TV and phone services, at its primary location in Branford and soon-to-open second location in Old Saybrook. The solutions provide reliability, speed, and low latency for Thimble Island Brewing Company, creating a technological foundation to support the company’s growing operations, wholesale distribution business and planned expansion this Spring.

Thimble Island Brewing Company was established in 2010 by two friends and home brewers who were inspired to make great beer for their local community. Thimble Island Brewing Company is named after the largest group of islands in Connecticut, the Thimble Islands, located off the coast of Branford. Driven by passion and hard work, the company has become a pillar of the Branford community and greater Connecticut beer scene.

“At Thimble Island Brewing Company, we pride ourselves in providing an excellent experience for our loyal customers – and technology is critical to doing so effectively. On a day-to-day basis, we rely on our technology infrastructure to check product inventory, monitor our production, and manage the experience for guests in our brewpub,” said Justin Gargano, Founder and CEO, Thimble Island Brewing Company. “None of that is possible without Comcast Business. They have helped improve our operations and provide us with the necessary network to support the systems that ensure our brewpub, as well as sales and retail teams, are successful.”

Thimble Island Brewing Company understands the importance of partnering with a reliable connectivity provider to support its operational needs and cloud-hosted software for its growing retail, wholesale, and distribution operations. This includes the customer relationship management (CRM) system that is used to predict product production volume, inventory availability for wholesale distribution and purchases, and in-store point-of-sale systems. Powerful network connectivity backs the system, equipping team members in the back and front of the house, as well as sales staff on the road, with the necessary information to best serve each customer. Additionally, the company recently turned to Comcast Business to support the opening of its second brewpub in Old Saybrook, seeking to replicate the success and customer-first approach that has been achieved in Branford.

“As Thimble Island Brewing Company prepares to open its second location, the company is in a unique position to further deliver on the reputation it has built in Branford to more customers in Old Saybrook and across the state,” said Paul Savas, Vice President of Comcast Business for Comcast’s Western New England Region. “Technology is key to doing this for Thimble Island Brewing, as well as many other restaurants and brewpubs across the region. Comcast Business has established itself as a provider of choice for this booming hospitality industry in Connecticut and across the country, and we’re proud to partner with Thimble Island Brewing Company to continue providing this meaningful support.”
