On the way home meandered to the door of New England Brewing, in Woodbridge CT. Their tasting room is open weekdays at noon. As I arrived one could sense the wonderful aroma of something cooking - smelled like beer!
Tried the following beers; note one of these was not on tap but fresh from the bottling.
Elm City Pilsner [#3,437]
Barrel Aged Stout Trooper
668 the Neighbor of the Beast - nice Belgian strong ale, extra points for the name!
Wet Willy Scotch Ale - not a smoky as some
Probably head back for a visit tour in early January, as they are bottling/caging their winter beer.
