"We’ve really been overjoyed by the reaction from consumers and from the folks at UConn as well,” said Collin Kennedy, the director of marketing at Two Roads.

Both the men and women's basketball teams are looking like strong contenders at this year’s NCAA tournament, and with more watch parties happening due to lower Covid numbers, Kennedy said for March Madness, “you will want to have this in your hand when you are cheering for the Huskies, you want to be raising a glass to a victory.” 

Kennedy added that TwoConn Easy Ale is “golden ale inspired. Crisp and clean with a touch of sweetness and a kiss of hops for balance.”
