Stouts, Beer Flights, and More @ Coalhouse Pizza + The Ginger Man this January

9 Jan
Wall of Stouts at The Ginger Man SoNo
Yeah, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of bad beer,
I will fear no Bud Lite, because Coalhouse and Ginger Man art with me.
Their draught lines and their beer choices comfort me.
Now that you’ve said your prayers, you can thank God for what Coalhouse Pizza (on High Ridge Road in Stamford) and The Ginger Man SoNo (on Washington in Norwalk) are up to in January.  Yes, while both institutions of beer are known for their reverence of brews, they’ve also been known to change things up and offer pure surprises of awesomeness.  January is no different:
Beer taps at The Ginger Man in Norwalk, Connecticut
The Great Wall of Stouts at The Ginger Man, SoNo
From Monday, 1/21 until Sunday, 1/27, you’ll witness the largest take takeover in Ginger Man history.  While their largest draught reservation was at 18 for Dogfish Head, The Great Wall of Stouts is busting that record with 26 draughts.  Consider it this way:  an entire HALF of their draught wall will be reserved for stouts.  We’re talking stouts from all over the country!  If you’re a stout lover or would like to delve into the realm of the deeper, good stuff then this is a perfect time to visit The Ginger Man.

Flight Nights and More at Coalhouse Pizza, Stamford
If you’d love to try out tons of beer from different breweries across the country, then Coalhouse is another great place to be this January.  Gerard has arranged for eight different flight nights where you can sample beer from a different brewery each night.  On top of that, you’ll pay only $9 for a pitcher of New England Brewing, Two Roads, Half Full, Thomas Hooker, and other CT beers every Friday in January.  Also, don’t forget about their Battle of the IPAs event and their latest Beer Academy class.  Here’s the schedule of dates:

    prices at Coalhouse have gotten out of hand

      We saw people talking about that on their FB page. Are you talking about just the beer? Gerard’s response was that it is still cheaper than at most other places you go to. One way to cut down on cost would be to join their beer club…would save a bit. You are probably a member already, though?

        While agree it seems odd in the grand scheme of things to see a pitcher deal for $9 bucks…if you really look at where we live and the price per beer for the deal, it’s actually a good deal. A pitcher is usually 4 pints…and this is a craft beer pitcher…so you’re talking $2.25 per pint…which is unheard of for craft beer in FF county. In general prices are what they are around here…$6-$10 beers…$15-$20 pizzas. This part of the state isn’t for the penny pinchers…which is tough cause plenty of penny pinchers live around here (including mysel)…Just in terms of craft brews…I have noticed that Plan B Stamford seems to have better prices than some other places. Bar Q prices are kind of rough…though they offer a buy one get one happy hour monday – friday 4pm – 7pm

      Gerard here from Coalhouse. I appreciate the feedback and I hope you would compare us to Gingerman. I make sure that we are less expensive offering the same caliber of beer for the same or less — for example, a 12 ounce pour of the Burton Baton at Gingerman is $10 and at Coalhouse it is $7. There are two flights options at Gingerman – one is $12 and one is $17. Our flights are $12.75 and you can choose any five ounce pours from our 52 taps. I think if you compare prices you will see that we offer the same for less. If not, I will match any of their prices. Craft Beer should be affordable and enjoyed by everyone. My goal is to offer the best Craft Beer in Fairfield County at a fair price! And if I am not doing that, please let me know.
