Local Brewers Westbrook CT Launched 2021

Our Voyage

Coastline Brewing Co. is the creation of lifelong Connecticut residents Rich Lemieux, Phil Violette, and Jay Magisano.

At Coastline Brewing Co. we love trying great beer, so we decided to create some of our own. We have offerings for all tastes whether you love hoppy IPAs, rich stouts, or refreshing sours. We are devoted to crafting our brews with innovative, locally sourced ingredients.

After visits to multiple craft breweries in New England and beyond stirred their interest in the process, Rich and Phil became homebrew hobbyists. Inspired by their love of the fun, family-friendly, relaxed vibe at independent local craft breweries, Rich, Phil, and Jay decided to take the plunge and open a brewery of their own. Avid boater Rich spotted the perfect opportunity just up the road from the beach in Westbrook and Coastline Brewing Co. was launched.

Coastline Brewing Co. is proud to be a member of the Westbrook community and is committed to supporting fellow local businesses.

Our Team

Rich Lemieux

Partner

Rich owns Nova Developers and is a builder/developer. This has been extremely beneficial during the build process as he has built several restaurants, bars, pubs and commercial buildings and spaces such as CVS and Northeast Produce. He enjoys playing music…

(lead guitarist in a band called The Remedy with Phil). Rich and Phil became intrigued with the phenomenal local craft beers and decided to try our their hand at it. It quickly grew on them and became a serious hobby. And damnit, they’re good at it! When Rich is not working, he is an avid boater, also a (maybe temporary) retired skydiver having jumped out of hot air balloons, helicopters and several different type of aircraft . He even still has his gear! Rich is a family man who loves spending time with his family enjoying football (especially the Patriots). Lastly, he loves cruising the northwest hills with the top down in his toy hitting the wineries with Anne, his wife. Rich has been a local for years as he has a place near Westbrook. They enjoy spending time at their home by the beach with their many friends and neighbors.

Phil Violette

Partner

Phil is a lifelong Bristol resident who just retired from the New Britain Police Department and also owns P Violette Construction. He brings a great skillset as Phil also helped with the build out of the brewery. He began making beer about 4-5 years ago with Rich. Their first batch…

was made in his garage. As time went on, they purchased bigger and better equipment to improve their beer creations. He is very active and needs to stay busy, but aside from brewing beer and trying new recipes, Phil has been married for 29 years to his wife, Shannon, and has 2 daughters. He is an avid sports fan and his favorite teams include the Boston Red Sox, New England Patriots, Boston Celtics and Hartford Whalers. He spends his free time hanging out with his family and visiting different breweries.

Jay Magisano

Partner/Head Brewer

Head Brewer Jay Magisano is a lifelong Plainville resident who began homebrewing as a hobby over a decade ago. Over time and after visiting and sampling from a variety of breweries, his love for beer grew and he began brewing more frequently with friends…

and neighbors. In 2018, he began working at a local brewery first as a Cellarman and soon thereafter as Assistant Brewer. He knew he had found his passion. When Jay isn’t brewing, sampling, or talking about fine beer, he enjoys golfing, watching NASCAR and football, woodworking, and spending time at the beach with his family. He and his wife Laura have a spunky daughter, Riley Jain, who keeps them both on their toes. Cheers!
