I finally made it out to Eastern CT, an area of the state that I rarely went even when I lived there. But this is the type of place that you pray might open near you when you live in these less accessible parts of the state. I visited from Naugatuck and spent as much time driving, as I did at the pub, which also limits how much actual drinking could be done. So I started with a 12 oz of the Dyvil Hopyard IIPA. Amazing! Then the sampler set was a combination of house and guest beers, all generous sized and it is nice to be able to mix in guest beers (just none of the higher ABV beers). My other house favorite was the Six Shooter (Oyster) Stout.

As far as the place, the building is amazing. Great feel at the bar and I also walked through each room and the patio. Classic New England feel. The staff was knowledgeable and once the bartender found out that I was visiting from CA, the brewmaster/owner (?) David came by for a good chat.

There is good reason for the constant mentioning of Willibrew as a top bar and top brewery. A must visit for anybody in Eastern CT and worth the trip for anybody willing to limit their tasting or who may have a DD.
