    I am going to be in Southbury for Thanksgiving, and I wanted to stop by the brewery. The website didn't say anything about a taproom. Do they have one at the brewery? Do they have tours? Are thye worth it? How about growler or bottle sales?

    Thank you in advance.

    Check out the NEBCO thread a little lower down for some more details, but:

    1. By "taproom", if you mean a place where there is beer on tap, yes, they have one.
    2. If by tours, you mean, will Rob walk you around the brewery, then yes.
    3. They do sell growlers. The NEBCO thread below typically has an up-to-date list, as does their facebook, often. Typically they don't sell bottles/cans unless there was a special release, like the recent Premeditated Murder barleywine. However, you're literally right across the street from Amity Wine, which has about all of the beer you can find in Connecticut.

    But seriously, NEBCO is in a big garage, basically. Don't expect a gleaming brewery. Just awesome beer.

    Sorry if this was mentioned in the other NEBCO thread - I looked but didn't see it.

    Anyone know what their hours are for this week (namely today and tomorrow) for growler fills? I'm unfortunately blocked from any social media site where NEBCO might have this info posted.

    Yep, they normally close up at 6 but if you're making a long drive go ahead and ring them before you leave to make sure
