Tara Kasaks Cowles, Founder

Aspetuck Brew Lab is a family run brewery. Tara was introduced to craft beer by Pete about 20 years ago when trips to Vermont often included stops at Magic Hat and later The Alchemist.  Vacations always included visits to local breweries and conversations about the beer, the people, and the atmosphere.  After a marketing career in New York City and Boston and about ten years at a local non-profit, she and Pete decided to stop talking about opening a brewery and start doing...  You'll often see Tara running in and out of the taproom, planning events, delivering kegs, and doing paperwork!
