Friendly staff and amazing beer. Great atmosphere. Customers are always nice and friendly. Always great to stop in get a growler or 2 or 3 filled and have a few samples.

One of my, if not my favorite brewery here in CT. Has a great distribution network, too, so taps and package stores always have NEBCO. Been going here for growler fills since the old brewery on Selden Street. I would make my stops after classes at SCSU.

Brewery itself is tucked away behind a Jaguar dealership in Woodbridge right on the New Haven line. Smallish tap room has a spot to order growlers or pick up the occasional bottle/can release. Tasting area is to the right and there's enough standing room with some tables. Bathrooms are here, too.

Service is quick and prompt, and if it's not too busy they are good people and easy to talk to. Beer is super fresh and even their experimental beers (Fat Ten-ers) are awesome. Super hoppy goodness. Even since the expansion they have been able to have anywhere from 4-6 beers on tap at any time. Prior to this they would completely sell out!

Hope they continue to grow and expand. Sad to see Matt Westfall leave but there are even brighter days ahead for NEBCO. Cheers!

I've been here a few times, mostly stopping in en route to somewhere else. I first visited the original location, which was small and gritty, but still nice and friendly. The newer location is not too far from the original spot. Obviously bigger, and a bit more polished and organized. I was never there for a big release, but they seem good enough in the service department. Not really my kind of place, but it's good for what it's good for...get your cans and growlers, and/or hang around for some samples.
