This past Saturday, 8/24, we stopped by SoNo Marketplace for two reasons. 1) We wanted to help support the great and sweet doggies like Mama who are up for adoption from Bully Breed Rescue of New Canaan. 2) We wanted to check out the brand new Farm Terrace Beer Garden right outside the SoNo Marketplace. Well, we accomplished both tasks thanks to buying a $5 ticket (usually $7 for a draft) from Bully Breed Rescue that got us a beer at the bar.
Now, talking about the bar and the beer garden, we were really amazed at how great it looks. To be honest, we weren’t sure what it would look like because the outside of the SoNo Marketplace was pretty stark and ordinary when we visited last year. But, the entryway right by the parking lot has been transformed into a beer oasis. And, that’s pretty smart of them because in order to get in or to get back to your car you’ll pass by The Farm Terrace Beer Garden!
You can order some local brews from Captain Lawrence, Two Roads, Half Full, Kelso, or Brooklyn Brewery, plus they have other options on tap (12 lines total) for you. Also, they have a nice list of craft bottles to choose from. And, even if beer’s not your thing, they do have some wine for you. Now, getting back to the beer garden. We were impressed with the beer line up there and the brewistas knew a great deal about each beer. While we sipped on some brews, the popular drink of the day was Half Full’s Bright Ale…nice.
As for what The Farm Terrace Beer Garden looks like and where you can sit, you’ll love this. You can sit at the bar of course, but there are also some tables next to the bar so you can stay under the roofed in area. Or, if you’d like to be closer to the fountain and outdoor area, you can check out one of the many umbrellaed tables that are outside.
Then, after you’ve had some brews, you could hit up the restaurants and shops inside. When you’re done with shopping, you can come back out and have some more brews. Hey, we won’t say anything. Plus, as an added bonus you could also check out the Farmstand for some local fruits and veggies if you plan things well.
So, we’re excited about The Farm Terrace Beer Garden @ SoNo Marketplace. It’s a great addition to their extensive market, but it’s also what comes to mind when we think of what a beer garden should be. Definitely check it out and tell them that OmNomCT sent ya for some beer.
