Coastline Brewing Company
Opening Spring 2022
Two of the Coastline Brewing Company partners, Rich Lemieux and Phil Violette (Bristol residents), were long-time friends and had been previously home brewing together under the name Two Dads Brewing Company. Through a family friend, they connected with their third partner and Head Brewer, Jay Magisano (Plainville resident). The two approached Jay because they knew he was working at a local brewery at the time, and they were seeking advice on new brewing equipment. The three got together and made a beer…and then another beer…and as the saying goes, the rest is history. They have a decade and a half of experience in brewing and are ready to share their love of beer with the world. Its mission is to bring quality and unique beer to the community while providing a relaxing and fun environment to spend time in-whether it be to drink a cold one with a friend, have a low-key date night, bring the entire family, or meet new friends.
