UConn Alumni 1881 Series

 The award winning 1881 Series brings alumni owned breweries, distilleries, wineries and beverage industry leaders together through unique and exclusive events.
The 1881 Series, originally launched to feature alumni-owned breweries, brewing a unique and never been done before beer, and releasing it to fellow Huskies first. Due to popular demand, the series now has a family of spinoffs and sub-series: UncorkedOn the Rocks and What's on Tap.
For wine loving Huskies, Uncorked – our wine-based twist to our initial brewery series. Brings a unique and exclusive experience to our alumni-owned wineries and vineyards, giving our alumni a chance to experience vineyards, and wine blends from near and far. This includes our virtual wine tasting events as well.
For the spirit based Husky, On the Rocks – our spirit based version brings alumni a unique experience that focuses on unique and exclusive blends of spirits and distilled products, distilled and crafted by fellow Huskies. Included in this sub-series is our virtual mixology classes.
What’s on Tap – A virtual spinoff, first pioneered during the COVID-19 pivot. A blend of our alumni experts in the beverage world, partnered with UConn faculty bringing research and academic expertise to the forefront on various alcoholic-beverage related topics and current/trending topics.
