Out on the Beer Trail
Suddenly there are more than 70 breweries, brewpubs and beer bars along the Connecticut Beer Trail – each of them offering its own special brews and each no doubt worthy of your attention. With so many choices, you can make your own itinerary, but here’s a tour to get you started.
- Cambridge House Brew Pub
- Thomas Hooker Brewing Company
- Willimantic Brewing Company
- Connecticut Beer Trail
Cambridge House Brew Pub, Granby
Cambridge House Brew Pub
Start your excursion with lunch and a beer at the Cambridge House Brew Pub in Granby. At last look, Moonbean Stout, Abijah Rowe IPA and Copper Hill Kolsch were all on the menu, along with food, of course.
Thomas Hooker Brewing Company, Bloomfield
Willimantic Brewing Company, Willimantic
Willimantic Brewing Company
Next day, it’s time to head east to see what’s happening on the campus of the University of Connecticut in Storrs. Check out the school’s Calendar of Events for ideas on what to do, or perhaps there’s an on-campus basketball game (both teams were national champs last year!) After your day, get to the Willimantic Brewing Company, which has found a happy home in the former Willimantic post office. You’ll find WBC beers, guest beers and bottled beers, and a full dinner menu.
