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! (1,417 characters)

Willi Brew is a must stop for me when visiting family. Always amazed at the selections of brew offered up either from their own collection or from guest breweries.
The food has always been first rate. No complaints at all!

Huge bar and dining area.

Every Time I walk in I am reminded of standing in line with my Grandfather to buy Stamps. Owners have done everything possible to retain the original architecture of the old Post Office that was build in the early 1900's. (473 characters)
