Beautiful place nestled in the woods in the wilds of Connecticut. Love the brewery's woodwork, very comfortable place to hang and have a top-shelf brew. Don't quite understand why there's a 2 beer limit, but it wasn't an issue for me as I was getting beer to-go.

Wonderful and relaxed spot. Not particularly large, but as the name suggests, it's very laid back and rustic. Appointments are available online, or you can simply grab a spot on the lawn (with plenty of flowers and friendly bees).

Draught list is split three ways: traditional lagers, IPAs, and farmhouse ales (including sours). This means that while whatever beer(s) drew you to Fox Farm in the first place may not be on tap, you're pretty much guaranteed to find a style you like. And they just so happen to do every style very well (although their specialty are, without a doubt, their phenomenal lagers and farmhouse ales).

Love the beer; love the ambiance. There's very little to complain about here.

This is my happy place. Relaxing, clean, friendly and a great selection of beer. It's nice to have a mini version of HF closer to me.

Not a lot of diversity. Strict 2 beer limit. Otherwise it’s a great spot! Great outside area. Definitely worth a visit!

Fox Farm beer has always been one of my favorites, so it was marvelous to visit the brewery & try their beers fresh off the tap. My parents came along with me, & they weren't as much of a fan as myself, but they were just discovering the joys of craft beer & a nice hazy IPA, so I don't let it bother me. It had a pretty cool vibe, definitely a clean interior. The beer was great but in retrospect I should have picked up a bottle of their Witch Meadow. Instead I came home with a four pack of Graze tallboy cans, which I had over my vacation week. I hope to make another visit to their brewery soon. The staff seemed fairly friendly (but serious) so hope they will loosen up a little. Cheers friends!

Super friendly and helpful staff. They helped provide full descriptions of the beer and were really knowledgeable. All of their beers are done well and the ones I’ve been down on are merely because I am not a fan of a particular hops. They usually have a wide style of beers available to go and on tap. I went on a Friday around three so it was a little quiet. I had my two pours and left just as it was picking up. There was an upstairs that admittedly I didn’t check out but it seemed a little out of place for me. You had to keep going up and down a decent flight of stairs to get yours pours. Obviously anything that generates more seating is typically a bonus so this is nitpicking I suppose.

This is how Connecticut should be regarded. The surrounding area has an old world feel and the barn itself lends to that description. Once inside I was really impressed with the quality of the woodwork and the construction of the building. Place was very clean and the staff was present. A comfortable place to enjoy there beer. Will have to return.

Fox Farm is tremendous in every way. Great beer, great people, great location. It has a terrific vibe, easy to get beer whether tasting or getting a growler fill. An exceptional brewery already and should get even better!

Beautiful piece of land; the brewery itself is very nice;

This may be the best beer in CT;

Staff is friendly - it's virtually always busy, so they don't have a lot of time to spend with any one person - but they try;

Not a lot of options at any given time, but they will all be excellent;

All I can say it Wow is the beer good here. The Alta is as good as Treehouse Julius and the farm setup is rustic and cool inside. The owner is very friendly and staff was great. This is a major up and coming brewery.
