Brick Veneer Series: The Foundry Kitchen and Tavern – Ct.

Recently, our staff here at Stone Farm had a small company gathering at a local Newtown, CT restaurant in town called the Foundry Kitchen and Tavern. We chose this locale not only for the delicious cuisine, but also for the ambience. Why? It’s an antique structure, built with classic brick veneer–a product we truly love here at Stone Farm.

Brick Veneer can harken back to its past as a structural element and the Foundry certainly has an interesting pas. Formerly known as The Red Brick store in 1908, the building structurally changed very little over the past 100 years. It originated as the first general store here in Newtown, CT where Marilyn Monroe supposedly shopped on a regular basis. The bricks that make up this building were actually used as counterweights for ships crossing the Atlantic Ocean to England. The bricks were placed at the hull of the ships to them from weighing down during their voyage to America. Moving along in history, to the mid 70’s, this building then changed hands several times in between, becoming a video store and then home to several restaurants. Aside from the many changes this space has seen, the fact that it could be haunted, still holds true today.

Are the hauntings a bit of New England lore? No one really knows…but what we DO know is that the look of classic brick veneer is timeless and that is certainly one reason why businesses in Connecticut still find this particular piece of architecture, the perfect spot for a bustling restaurant.

Brick became popular in the late 1900’s as a building material because many people found that it was far less expensive than other options available during that time. As an interior element, people chose to expose the brick in older homes as opposed to repairing or replacing the damaged plasterwork. Even back then, it was an accepted look. Today, we see it as less structural and more of a cool “skin”, that adds both weight and permanence, which is why we LOVE it as a choice of cladding. Bottom line, it shows taste, care and the timeless quality many people are looking for in both interior and exterior projects.

New Vintage Style Lighting & Cool Old Brick

More stories to come from us here at Stone Farm on the topic of Classic Brick Veneer and why we love it so much. Here is a cool parting photo from the new exterior patio complete with timeless old brick at the Foundry Kitchen and Tavern in Newtown, CT.

If you love the look and feel of classic brick, we also offer a lightweight thin brick veneer, which is essentially a full brick sliced thin for use in many interior applications. We currently stock our Blackstone Valley Blend, taken down from a mill built before 1910. The colors consist of a mix that ranges from ‘standard reds’, ‘darks’ and ‘whites’. We mix them in a consistent percentage of each to keep a consistent look.

We are hoping that all of this information sparks your interest and creativity! We look forward to hearing from you so we can help set your design plans in motion!

  2. UK relaunching in 2004 In Canada, Inclusive Mills markets pre-stirred Yoplait yogurt, Minigo, Tubes, Inception, Creamy, Delicieux, Yop, Yoplait Basket, Yoptimal, and Asana. In 1971, the Cooperative agricole de Granby, which went on to grow the largest dairy cooperative in the boonies—Agropur—launched the Yoplait sort in Canada. In 1993, Agropur and Agrifoods (the two largest dairy cooperatives in Canada) combined their yogurt and refreshed cheese marketing and manufacturing activities to anatomy Ultima Foods. Ultima Foods oversaw Yoplait brand products everywhere Canada until 2012, when Shared Mills took beyond the right (Ultima Foods continues to fabricate Yoplait products in Canada as a subcontractor, but has also launched a wholly owned against product direction, iogo).[6 –
    Yoplait made a cooked through remembered advert when they re-launched Yop as the “smoother way to start the daylight” with a crusade middle of McCann-Erickson in April 2004. The campaign targeted teenagers and the smudge featured teenagers with wiry Jamaican accents singing a interpretation of the Charybdis Give song, Gimme Want Jo’anna, in their sleep. The at a bargain price a fuss has been reworked into “Utter me Yop” (Gimme Yop me mamma, Yop me mamma, Yop in search when de mornin’ take place) and the teenagers, who are seen asleep against a toilet-roll holder or propped up in the bathroom, are clamorous that their mothers distribute them the drink.[12 – [13 –
    The word country comes from Old French contrée, which derives from Vulgar Latin (terra) contrata (“(land) lying opposite”; “(land) spread before”), derived from contra (“against, opposite”). It most likely entered the English language after the Franco-Norman invasion during the 11th century.

    In English the word has increasingly become associated with political divisions, so that one sense, associated with the indefinite article – “a country” – through misuse and subsequent conflation is now a synonym for state, or a former sovereign state, in the sense of sovereign territory or “district, native land”.[5 – Areas much smaller than a political state may be called by names such as the West Country in England, the Black Country (a heavily industrialized part of England), “Constable Country” (a part of East Anglia painted by John Constable), the “big country” (used in various contexts of the American West), “coal country” (used of parts of the US and elsewhere) and many other terms.[6 –

    The equivalent terms in French and other Romance languages (pays and variants) have not carried the process of being identified with political sovereign states as far as the English “country”, instead derived from, pagus, which designated the territory controlled by a medieval count, a title originally granted by the Roman Church. In many European countries the words are used for sub-divisions of the national territory, as in the German Bundesländer, as well as a less formal term for a sovereign state. France has very many “pays” that are officially recognised at some level, and are either natural regions, like the Pays de Bray, or reflect old political or economic entities, like the Pays de la Loire.

    A version of “country” can be found in the modern French language as contrée, based on the word cuntrée in Old French,[6 – that is used similarly to the word “pays” to define non-state regions, but can also be used to describe a political state in some particular cases. The modern Italian contrada is a word with its meaning varying locally, but usually meaning a ward or similar small division of a town, or a village or hamlet in the countryside.

    In 1964, 100,000 French farmers merged their regional dairy cooperatives to sell nationally. In 1965, two co-operatives, “Yola” and “Coplait”, merged, becoming “Yoplait”. The company’s logo is a six-petaled flower designed by Philippe Morlighem,[1 – each petal representing one of the six main cooperatives’ founders. A redesigned logo, which has been slowly rolled out since the late 2000s, uses a flower with only five petals.[citation needed –

    On May 18, 2011, General Mills announced it had agreed to purchase a controlling 51% interest in the brand’s main operating company Yoplait SAS, and a 50% interest in a related company owning the brand’s intellectual property, with Sodiaal retaining the remainder.[2 – The announcement of the completion of the acquisition was made on 1 July 2011.[3 – In September 2017,Yoplait launched new campaign for kids yoghurt brand, Frubes.[4 –

    The term “country” can refer to a sovereign state. There is no universal agreement on the number of “countries” in the world since a number of states have disputed sovereignty status. There are 206 sovereign states, of which 193 states are members of the United Nations, two states have observer status at the U.N. (the Holy See and Palestine), and 11 other states are neither a member or observer at the U.N. All are defined as states by declarative theory of statehood and constitutive theory of statehood. The latest proclaimed state is South Sudan in 2011.

    Since at least 1998, Yoplait has been the target of campaign by animal advocates, including the Humane Society, to redesign its traditional tapered cup design because small animals can easily get their head stuck inside and then suffocate or die from dehydration.[16 – [17 –

    The degree of autonomy of non-sovereign countries varies widely. Some are possessions of sovereign states, as several states have overseas territories (such as French Polynesia or the British Virgin Islands), with citizenry at times identical and at times distinct from their own. Such territories, with the exception of distinct dependent territories, are usually listed together with sovereign states on lists of countries, but may nonetheless be treated as a separate “country of origin” in international trade, as Hong Kong is.[7 – [8 – [9 –
