Beer Conn 2016 Is Upon Us!

beer conn 2016

On Saturday December 10, Nutmeg-State beer lovers will descend on Webster Bank Arena in Bridgeport for the third annual Beer Conn. Forty breweries are confirmed so far, both local and far-flung.  Here are a few we’re looking forward to:

Fairfield Craft Ales (Stratford, CT) — Uh oh, Two Roads has some competition!  Let’s see what these guys bring to the taproom, er, table.

Firefly Hollow (Bristol, CT) — If you read this, please bring the Tequila Barrel Aged Dire Chinchilla Imperial Pale!

Lock City Brewing (Stamford, CT) — “The City That Works” is also the city that drinks!  These determined brewers will have a tasting room open in Stamford’s Glenbrook neighborhood soon, but until then the only place to try Lock City beer is at fests like this one.

Troegs Independent Brewing (Hershey, PA) — Their Javahead Stout is always my go-to at Cherry Street Station.  Looking forward to trying some of their other offerings.

If you want to enjoy beer from these great brewers plus dozens of others, get your tickets here — and don’t forget your pretzel necklace!
