LASTING HISTORY

It only seems natural that we were able to locate the Lasting Brass brewery in the Old Pin Shop building in Oakville, CT. The building was originally erected in 1729 by James Williams and used as a gristmill. From there the mill became the Oakville Pin Company. The pin business was very successful and later became a division of Scovill Manufacturing Company, the Waterbury-based brass company.

Lasting brass is honored to be located in such a beautiful old building whose rich history and character inspire our drive to experiment with our own form of brass.
