Willimantic Beer Sampler found at Willimantic Brewing Company
967 Main Street, Willimantic
Includes: Gold, Hopsolutely, Sterling Nugget IPA, Dead Letter Stout, and Ambeered beer sampling
Beer n00bs and snoobs alike will rejoice with the offerings at Willimantic Brewery, which at any given time, features an impressive range of forty fresh beers: some made in house and many other craft beers. They even do a cask beer that is made ‘European style’ and served less carbonated and close to room temperature (cue jokes). The beer sampler is a great mini tour of the brewery, moving the palette from the Gold – a crowd favorite with a light taste – to the Dead Letter Stout – which boasts a smooth chocolate finish with hints of smoke. The Sterling Nugget IPA is a treat for those who enjoy unfiltered, bitter IPA at its most raw and finest, while Hopsolutely will give the biggest hops aficionado reason to rejoice. Ambeered, with its amber color and smooth malt finish, rounds out the sampler nicely. The knowledgeable and friendly bar staff will be happy to help the novice appreciate the finer points of the sampling, or offer a favorite variety to the seasoned beer drinker. Fresh local beer at great prices… what’s not to love?
