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.

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.
