I paid my first visit to this brewery that’s been open for over a year, last Saturday afternoon. located in the town of New Hartford, CT. The tasting room was quite spacious with seating for at least 60 patrons, which on that day, was about running at 80% capacity. With some seating at the bar and about 6 picnic styles and 4 seat round tables, was quite inviting. The brewing room was behind a wall with only 2 small windows to see their equipment which wasn’t much of a view. I found an open seat at the bar and ordered a 4 glass 6oz sampler tray of their 3 IPA’s and the Kölsch, I was going to stop at that but then got a taste of their ale and lager and could not pass up a 6oz glass of the very tasty lager. I have to say the IPA’s were different but very tasty and I couldn’t taste the chocolate in the Hop Chocolate one! My brew write ups and picture are below. Brewery home page here.
