My girlfriend and I were on a roadtrip searching out fun hikes and great beers throughout CT. We had heard of a newer brewery in Middletown called Stubborn Beauty. While looking for it we stumbled acr...oss this little gem in the same industrial building. I ordered a flight to sample everything they had. There were some tasty brews for sure. Forestfest Oktoberfest and Harvest Saison were my favorites. At the time of our visit they were hosting a cider from New England Cider Company called 'Fresh Blend' and it was fantastic. On our way out we wanted to purchase a growler of each but was told they couldn't sell us a growler of the cider because it wasn't their product, state law dictated they could sell us a blend but not straight up cider. I chose a blend of Harvest with the Fresh Blend cider and the result was awesome! If you're in the Middletown area give this little start-up a visit. It looked like a family run business. The brew master was super personable and really into talking about the product he made. The whole staff made us feel welcome. SIDE NOTE: That industrial building currently houses 2 breweries and will soon also have a cidery on the property. It'll be a one stop bar-crawl. How cool is that?!� The only Con: one working bathroom for all three bueño. See More

I was here for a 50th birthday party...great atmosphere and I found the staff very friendly and extremely enthusiastic about their product. True beer geeks. My favorite was Remington IPA but of you stout, they had a "chocolate " stout that was out of this world. My wife isn't much of a beer drinker but luckily they also make a cider that she loved!

It makes me feel so happy to see new life given to Connecticut’s beautiful old factory buildings! We had so much fun here. Thanks guys! You brew with heart.

Great creative brews! Wonderful vibe. Tonight the coniferous Kolsch with spruce tips was amazingly bright and quite a surprise! I loved it.

Awesome beer these guys kill it! Remington IPA and Wild Time Pale Ale were my favorites but the whole flight was on point. Was busy on Saturday but that's a good problem to have. Whole staff was friendly

Beers were great, but there's only 1 line for tastings, glasses and growler fills. I didn't realize this, and got barked at by the counter person. I wanted a glass of beer, after the tasting, but the... line was too full of growler fills. Probably won't be back. Hopefully, they'll see a little niceness goes a long way. See More

Gotta Try the Hazy and Remington IPA, stellar, citrusy and just excellent. To finish the Stout is no joke; smooth, Chocolaty, Roasty, Malty, and hits the spot for Stout Lovers. Can't go wrong with any... of the selections. Glad to support my local brewery. See More

The beer I tried was alright. It had a nice flavor but not really a good after taste that would make me want another. Hell I didn't even finish it either.
