There’s something to be very thankful for this holiday season: lots of CT breweries are open on Wednesday and the rest of the Thanksgiving break. And, why is that perfect? Well, you could:
- Drink the night away on Thanksgiving Eve, one of the biggest drinking nights of the year.
- Bring the beer to Thanksgiving and share.
- Drink away the pain of looking at your Black Friday receipts.
- If you do things right, you could theoretically do all three of these. ;)
So, here are some of the breweries (we are adding more soon) organized by name along with hours. If you have any other info that you’d like for us to add, please comment on here and we’ll add it! Also, make sure you take advantage of our growler laws and stop by some local restaurants like Coalhouse Pizza in Stamford who will fill ya up.
