I went there a week after they opened with high hopes. They have done an excellent job with the space - it is a great place to hang out. And their marketing is amazing - their beers instantly appeared everywhere. Too bad the beer is so disappointing - in particular the IPA. If you like the beer at SBC, you will probably like Two Roads. I may try it again in the future, but not what they are currently bottling.

It had some good beers, not crazy about atmosphere. I did like the Igor Sikorsky beer. It was an old machine shop that most of people in stratford worked at back in the day. They kept original flooring and office areas, which was cool.. No food trucks on the saturday when were there, but you can order in with delivery from local restaurants.

Dropped by the facility on 11/7 to taste some beers. I was very impressed with the physical space. They have a state of the art brewery with beautiful equipment, incredible for such a new brewery.
The tasting room is nice, it's got lots of pretty wood and that great, wort smell. The bartenders were friendly (one was an apprentice brewer). They knew their stuff. I tried most of the beers, Route of All Evil was the best, the rest were pretty mediocre. They do a ton of contract brewing at the facility too.
Overall, I had an awesome experience. The brewery doesn't have the vibe of most, small microbreweries, it has a slightly more corporate feel which means a more polished appearance and slightly less character.

Visited the taproom recently and was very impressed by the size of the brewery's operations; their taproom alone is probably 3000sqft. The taproom is on the second floor overlooking the entire brewery below. Besides their own brews, Two Roads also contract brews for craft brewers, hence their size and capacity.
Adjacent to the taproom is a small shop with various merchandise (hats, shirts, coasters, bottle openers) and of course some of their bottled beers. They fill regular and half sized growlers as well, but it has to be one of their growlers.
On to the beers; 5 in total on-tap; Holiday, Imp IPA, Pils, Saison, White IPA. All of the beers were tasty and unique when compared side by side. The Pils was very representative of the style with sharp crispness and subtle hop flavors. The Holiday and Imp IPA were my favorites with intense hop favors and complex malt bill.
Overall, I really enjoyed my visit and will definitely one back again soon.
A few last notes, the brewery offers tours for $5 per person with plenty of beer samples along the tour. Also, you can order food fin local eateries and have them delivered right to the bar; love the idea just like at dba in NYC.

What a cool spot! I love what they've done with what they had. You will feel as if you stepped back in time in an old factory. Usually a food truck outside, easy to get to and get out. I like their beers but I think more focus could be put into their stuff before contracting out their enormous capacity. When I go back I'd like to drink a few as I look at the before photos of the facility. They have done a lot for that neighborhood by rehabbing an old historic factory.
