I've only been once so far but enjoyed my visit and left with both bottles and a growler. It's a fairly spartan tap room and as others have mentioned there is some pretty odd art hanging. Also mentioned was the lack of seating which definitely needs correcting and maybe it has since I've visited.

I've heard Relic criticized for some inconsistent and at times unsuccessful beers. I felt like the samples I had, probably six in all, ran the gamut from so so to very good. In the end I felt the porter was the best as it had all the traditional roasty qualities and was well crafted and also had a very appealing sweetness ad chocolatey flavor. I feel Relic is worthy of praise, even if they have a few misses here and there, because the owner/brewer is by all accounts an exceedingly friendly dude who is happy to chat, pour, and discuss what he's making, and due to the fact that he is really willing to go outside the box a bit and isn't just throwing out the same predictable and boring stuff you will find at any run of the mill brewpub. Relic could eventually ascend to the top of the Connecticut beer scene, or at least approach NEBCO status, because of their willingness to take chances and because the state is really pretty barren when it comes to top quality breweries. If I lived closer I would be in here often for sure.
