New London Brewery Charts Move To Larger, Downtown Space

NEW LONDON, CT — Tox Brewing Company is moving to downtown New London. The new site, a 14,000-square-foot Bank Street space, is about 10 times larger than its current site on Broad Street.

Co-owner Dayne Laskey said there’s no firm date for when the move will happen, but they’re hoping it will be this year. For now, Laskey said they’re still seeking permits.

The brewing company was started by Laskey and Michael Zaccaro, who are described on the Tox Brewing website as “two lifelong friends from New London County that went to preschool together and have been the best of friends since fifth grade.”

Tox Brewing opened its 635 Broad St. location in 2019. Laskey said that the 1,400-square-foot space has never been big enough for them.

“The demand has always been higher than what we can provide,” he said.

The Downtown New London Association highlighted Tox Brewing moving its beer brewing tanks on Wednesday on the organization’s Facebook page.

The new space will allow Tox Brewing to provide a better experience, especially for larger groups, Laskey said.

The Bank Street location will have a pizza oven and a coffee counter. The space has two floors, with operations on the bottom floor and seating upstairs.

Laskey emphasized that the brewery is engaged in the community and donates to local charities.

“It’s an environment that’s welcoming to everybody,” he said. “It’s not just about the beer; it’s about bringing people together.”

Recently Tox Brewing introduced an imperial coffee maple stout and a porter made with local honey.

All of their beers are named after poisonous plants and animals, a nod to Laskey’s job as a professor of toxicology at the University of St. Joseph. One example is the “Double Dart,” a New Zealand hopped Double IPA.

Laskey said he didn’t want to give away too much of what they have in store at the Bank Street location.

“There’ll be a few more surprises I think patrons will like,” he said. “We’re very excited.”
