I am the god of Helles fire!

When two forces of nature come together, the result can be awe-inspiring and amazing. Take, for example, the sharknado. It is a cross between a tornado and the vicious power of sharks. By themselves, wow, but together . . . you don’t want to be caught in the sharknado.  Continue reading

Thanksgiving Week Brewery Hours for Growler Fills, Bottles + Cans – 2015

23 Nov

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:

  1. Drink the night away on Thanksgiving Eve, one of the biggest drinking nights of the year.
  2. Bring the beer to Thanksgiving and share.
  3. Drink away the pain of looking at your Black Friday receipts.
  4. 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.  Continue reading

19 May

Map-USA-New_England01

Since Dan (half of OmNomCT) is an English teacher, we thought it’d be fun to do a little geography lesson today. See, Connecticut is part of a group of six states affectionately known as New England. Those states are Connecticut, Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, and Vermont. Do you notice how they are all next to each other? Weird, right? Perhaps that’s why they’ve all been grouped together, huh?

Getting lit off of CT beer @ Relic + Firefly Hollow Brewing

6 Mar

A few weeks back, we shared some of our exploits with our doppelgänger couple, Renato and Alicia Ghio. Over the course of one day of absolute decadence, we had a crazy amount of wings at J. Timothy’s, gorged on some killer BBQ at Bear’s in Hartford, and finished up the night with some Two Roads beer at the XL Center at the Hartford Wolf Pack game. Oh, we kind of left out that we visited Relic Brewing Co. and Firefly Hollow Brewing Company in between all of that madness. Yup, when we go out, we go all out.
