Join The O’Connor Brewing Company Think Tank Society! A collective of craft beer enthusiasts, who are invited to enjoy special beer offerings, early releases, parties, discounts, and more. The Think Tank Society concept is the legacy of generations of brewers putting their collective heads together, and sharing ideas for novel brews and carrying forth the spirit of beer as a communal experience.
