Thimble Islands Brewery is located in an industrial complex that is a little hard to find but worth the trouble finding to enjoy the ever growing selections of brews. Staff are friendly and courteous with good knowledge and appreciation of their beloved brew. They are expanding and I can only guess that with more room the company will explode.

love the pumpkin beer! i'm not usually a beer person but mike and company do a great job making and running this brewery. I love trying their new beers and their seasonal selections. a great gem in otherwise bland southern connecticut. Great job, guys, i can't wait to come back in a few months!

Great, local craft brewery with very friendly brewer/owners. On saturdays the brewers are usually there and gladly share their thoughts on the beers and the process. Samples are available for all their brews on tap as well as selling and refilling growlers. The sample room was expanded but is still small. The dark pumpkin porter is a great fall beer and their coffee stout continues the local feel with connections to a local coffee house. All around a great little brewery with good beers and friendly people.

A perfect home for this craft beer on the CT shoreline. We really enjoyed our visit. My favorite is the crisp IPA, but my husband loved the pumpkin. Next I'm planning to try the coffee stout, which wins rave reviews from my friends--they love Thimble Island, too!
