I was happy to get the chance to stop at Willimantic with friends on two occasions - once for drinks and the next day for lunch and a brew.

The brewpub is actually a renovated old post office which is a really unique concept - the brewhouse is where the registered malt cage once was I am assuming. the kitchen is downstairs and the bar area is where the mail sorting happened -they have wine bottles stored in the letter slots. The atmospher is casual and relaxed with a friendly locals vibe. The service is very good-quick, friendly, accurate and we met the brewer who gave us a few samples from a barrel that was aging a flanders red - excellent!

The food is well made and tasty - the menu has plenty of variety and some unique items like mandarin chicken wrap. I had the onion ale soup which was really cheesy and delicious w/ pumpernickle bread crust soakin the oniony broth. They have plenty of wing sauce levels too if you enjoy some heat.

I was pleased with the choices of house brews which included a bock, rye, Ipa, pale and wheat but they also have plenty of guest taps which make over 25 choices overall.

The quality and value are well above average -you can tell everyone works together to create a comfortable dining and drinking experience - I am really impressed with the quality level of beers across the board and the people couldn't be friendlier -top notch place to have a craft brew and eat!

Although the prices are a little high you more than get your money's worth. Excellent atmosphere and quality with small brewing sets put on display in the dining area as well as the bar. The service was superb, all of the staff was attentive and friendly. The selections for their beers was great and we were very happy with our waiter's suggestions. The food was very well made and even had a great selection for my vegetarian friend I brought. Could not recommend this place more.
