For us, every single week in the year is CT Beer Week, but it’s cool when we really focus in on what we have here. And, what we have here is a growing, thirving community of brewers and hopheads who are keeping the beer scene active. So, whether you’ve been a hardcore supporter since the start, you’re just a plain ‘ol beer lover, or you’re new to CT beer or just beer in general, there are plenty of great things going on during CT Beer Week from November 15-21 (see some below).
If you’re anything like us, you need to get as many badges as possible on Untappd, right? To get this year’s Untappd Badge, just check into any 3 CT beers during the week. If you’re not a n00b, getting that done in one sitting should be pretty easy. Just saying. ;)
Here is the official list of breweries from Untappd (please note that some of these guys aren’t open yet):
Hooker, Olde Burnside, NEBCo, Cottrell, City Steam, Back East, Half Full, Relic, Two Roads, Beer’d, Thimble Island, SBC, Shebeen, Top Shelf, Broad Brook, Firefly Hollow, Stubborn Beauty, Overshores, DuVig, Black Hog, Stony Creek, Powder Hollow, Black Pond, Outer Light, Still Hill, Cambridge House, Lost Elm Artisanal Ales, No Worries, Witchdoctor, Hog River, Lock City, Cambridge House, Willimantic, Bru Rum at Bar, Safe Harbor Beer, Beaver, The Hartford Better Beer Co, Cold Creek, Kent Falls, OEC, Veracious, and Steady Habit.
