Connecticut’s Brewery Legitimus & Barden Farm Partner Again for 2nd CSABC (Community Supported Agriculture, Beer & Cheese) Share

CTbites Team

Brewery Legitimus, the 7 barrel craft brewery co-founded by husband and wife team Chris and Christina Sayer, is partnering once again with Barden Farm (New Hartford, CT), to bring a Community Supported Agriculture, Beer & Cheese (CSABC) Share to the community.  Back for a second year in a row, the 10-week “Farm, Beer and Cheese Share” begins July 11th and will run until September 12th. 

The first in the area, the CSABC share brings together locally grown produce from Barden Farm, locally crafted beer by Brewery Legitimus, and locally made cheese from several different farms in CT.

A CSABC share membership is $485 for the 10 Weeks and includes Craft Beer from Brewery Legitimus, Cheese and of course a Farm Share from Barden Farm. It works just like a CSA. Here’s what’s included:

  • 64oz. craft beer from Brewery Legitimus -- available in one 64oz. Growler or Two 32oz. CrowlersTM

  • 1 specially selected cheese

  • 1 box of assorted seasonal produce from Barden Farm

As a bonus, CSABC members receive complimentary recipes in a weekly email, have first right to limited release beers from Brewery Legitimus, and also receive $1 off any pint at the brewery on pick-up days.

This year Brewery Legitimus and Barden Farm will conclude the CSABC season with an epic farm to table beer dinner. They have partnered with Bridge Street Libations and Temptations restaurant in New Hartford to put on the dinner. Details are still being worked out but the idea is to bring all of the local ingredients together with Brewery Legitimus craft beer incorporated into the dishes and as an accompaniment to each course. CSABC members will have the option to purchase a discounted ticket to the dinner prior to ticket sales opening to the public. 

We are a homespun business and always looking for ways to support the community around us, says Brewery Legitimus Co-Founder Christina Sayer. “Partnering with local farms allows us to reach a broader audience and offers something unique to our growing customer following.  Every time we sit down with other local businesses there is so much collaboration, idea generation and most of all pure excitement to be working together on these projects. We are so excited to partner with Barden Farm again this year for a second year of the CSABC Share and we can’t wait to see what BLT restaurant creates for our collaboration farm to table dinner.”  

CSABC pick-up is on Thursdays from 5-8:30PM. To register, visit Brewery Legitimus in person or visit for online registration.  

The deadline to register for a membership is July 5, 2019.
