I decided to swing by Willimantic for lunch on the way to Foxwoods Casino. My buddy and I drove up, and it looked like a bank. It is a concrete building with large pillars out front. We walked in to the pub side and bellied up to the bar. It had high ceilings and a lot of woodwork.

I ordered a flight of in-house beers. They were all average to above average. I had a sandwich that was basically a reuben sandwich with coleslaw in place of sour kraut. I enjoyed it very much.

I struck up a conversation with a gentleman that happened to be from Michigan and had a nice talk about Michigan beer. I offered some suggestions for Ohio beers, as well. He actually wrote down some notes. He was a good guy from a great state. The bartender was very courteous and showed ample cleavage.

I eventually found out that the building used to be a post office. There are still P.O. boxes visible in the dining area. The dining area also houses the brewing equipment.

It is a good place to stop to eat and enjoy some beer. If you do not want their beer, they have several guest taps. It's definitely worth a look.
