A great place to go sit and have a beer. Bring your box of CAH and some friends and have a good time.

Local gem!! Very exciting to have a brewery like this in CT. We deserve it. You must
visit this brewery if your passing the CT. Brewery tours are usually given by a brew
master, which is absolutely amazing.

Two Roads recently had an awesome release of Igor's Dream, which is a limited release of their IRS. I was honored to be the the 1st in line, and obtained bottles 1-3. I hope to be 1st in line next for the same release.

Amazing brewery, new and young yet feeling like it's been part of the scenery for ages. Impressive bar and staff, great brewery tour and cool design. Oh and the beers they brew and serve are also really good and even though brewing is there an industrialized process, the result is stunning. Good seasonal brews and a solid craft beer lineup for any day or occasion.
Summer brings beer garden into play and there is always a decent food truck around.
Excellent job!

The brewery is located in the old Baird building in Stratford, CT. The brown brick building had been sitting empty for years and was in need of a new tenant. Two Roads moved in and created a great atmosphere that preserves the old legacy of the areas rich industrial contributions to America. Basically, Two Roads is a great local micro- brewery with many different and creative offerings. Nice to see a local beer brewery that's serious about growing their brand while helping out the local economy. Highly recommended.

Just a short distance from I-95 in Stratford, CT is the Two Roads Brewing Company. The renovated factory is hard to miss with its gigantic grain vessels located outside the building (specialty grains are stored inside). The pane glass windows crisscross over a scene of fermenting, wort boiling, kegging, and bottling equipment. This place is big.

Walk across the newly paved and striped parking lot towards the heavy wooden doors, go up the stairs and down the hall towards the clamor, and you will arrive in the Tasting Room which sits high above the brewery and is beautifully framed with floor to ceiling glass windows for your viewing pleasure. With the Tasting Room overlooking the brewery, you have an immediate need to drink beer.

The Two Roads flight consisted of five samples and cost $10. Custom etched sampling glasses generated numerous compliments from fellow patrons.

"Drink this one last." The taste-master recommended, pointing to the Road 2 Ruin Double IPA.

Here was the line up:
Honeyspot Road White IPA
Road 2 Ruin Double IPA
Worker's Comp Saison
Ol' Factory Pils
Holiday Ale

The gentleman next to me indicated he drinks his flights straight. One by one, no mingling of flavors. I followed suit.

White IPA, Pils, Holiday Ale, Saison, Double IPA

All were remarkably good representations of their respective styles, served a little too cold (for me) and one was slightly over carbonated, but they will work that out. They’ve only been open about two weeks, with very small batches available.

Two Roads is already brimming with success… it's 4pm on a Thursday and there is not a seat available at the approximate 30+ seat oval tasting bar. Small tables are scattered throughout, and as I round my third sample, those are filling up, too. Good for you, Two Roads. I'll be back. Plenty of room, lots of seating, and a splendid view.

"Holiday" growlers are flying out the door. I can see why, delicious.

If you are enroute and passing through Connecticut on I-95, it's worth the small detour.

I've been to this place quite a few times.

Amazing atmosphere. The brewery is in a re-purposed old factory and they did a lot to maintain that aesthetic. There's lots of exposed steel and old wood and a few old bits of old equipment around either in use or as decoration (one bathroom has one of those giant, industrial basin sinks with the foot pedal faucet controls).

All the beers are solid. They're not all world-class, but there's not a bad one in the bunch either. They range in quality from good to great, and some of the seasonals are truly top-notch.

The staff is friendly, knowledgeable, and attentive. If it's really busy it can be tough to get service, but that can't be helped. Growler fills can sometimes take a while though.

There's always a good selection of beers available. They offer five year-round brews as well as multiple seasonal offerings. At any given time there's between six and nine different beers available. There's not always a great variety of styles, but that's not a common problem.

They don't sell food, but if you want something to eat there's usually some pretty good food trucks parked in the lot.

The prices are pretty typical of what you'd pay for a draft beer in the area. Pints are between $4.00 and $6.00, depending on the style. Small taster glasses are $2.00. Not an amazing value, but not at all unreasonable.

Overall, I'd highly recommend checking the place out if you have the opportunity.
