Hours & Directions

Our Taproom is Open with Limited Seating & Hours. Our NEW Patio / Biergarten will also be available – weather & staff permitting – for additional outdoor seating. We will continue to offer Curbside Pickup on Thursdays.

Our Hours

Taproom

Taproom Pano

We are re-opening, limited hours, for tall pours in disposable (compostable) cups:

We will expand our hours as demand requires, while carefully complying with safety guidelines. Masks required when not seated.

Patio / Biergarten

Biergarten Photo

During the Taproom hours above, we will usually have outdoor seating available in the small patio area towards the front of the plaza; we’re calling it a Biergarten as that sounds far more exotic & desirable. Before we can make it available more regularly, we need to hire someone to help when running the taproom AND the patio. Sometimes we might close the Taproom and ONLY open the Biergarten if it’s a nice day.

The bottom line: whenever we can open the Biergarten (staff + weather permitting) we will post on our Social Media accounts to let you know!

Curbside Takeout

What to Expect During Your Visit

Two Sizes, No Flights

COVID UPDATE: We are temporarily suspending glassware use and have switched to a single use 16 oz compostable cup.

We offer 2 sizes: a “Pint” and “Half-Pint”. These are actually poured into glassware that has been sized to accomodate head and your pours include MORE than a pint and more than a half-pint of beer.

We do not currently offer flights.

Growler Fills

COVID UPDATE: We are only filling new glass growlers or 22 oz takeout beer bottles at this time.

A brewery without beer is like breakfast without OJ (and you know what happened to him). We will fill small growlers of a selection of our beer based on availability.

We’ll fill our own 750ml growlers, or any outside growler up to 32oz. Our system is quite small so if we fill full size 64 oz growlers regularly we will run out of beer. That said, if it’s mellow in the taproom, you aren’t in a rush, and we have LOTS of beer, we may do the occasional 64 oz fill. ;-)

It’s very important to us that folks visiting the taproom have a wide variety to choose from. So when a new beer comes out, it will be available for growlers but when we’re running low, we’ll switch to “pours only”.

Drinks, Other Than Beer…

Alongside our house brewed beer we offer a selection of Connecticut-Made sodas from Hosmer Mountain Soda, Cider from Connecticut Cideries New England Cider and Spoke + Spy Ciderworks. Along with a Red, White & Sparkling wine options. For details, check our Beer Alternatives page.

Outside Food

COVID UPDATE: There is currently a requirement that patrons purchase a meal, made on premise as a way of distinguishing our taproom operation (currently allowed) from a bar operation (currently not allowed). See our Re-Opening Post for details.

This is like giving people instructions as to how to leave a message on your answering machine. Wait “answering maching”? Sigh….I’m old. Voicemail. Argh, everyone just TXTs these days. This is a terrible analogy.

Anyhow, YES you can bring outside food. Or you can order from any of the restaurants that offer takeout nearby. We don’t have any of our own food…yet.

Pet Policy

Unfortunetely, per our local health board, pets are not permitted in the taproom. :-(
