Thrillist recently came out with the Best Beer Bar in Every State. There are a bunch in Connecticut, but I do wholeheartedly agree with this one.

According to Thrillist: “A true beer bar obsesses over beer and caters to those who do the same. It cares about stuff like clean lines and proper glassware. It generally has a bunch of interesting beers on tap, but doesn’t cheapen quality in a chase for sheer quantity. So wherever you happen to be in this country, if you seek out one of these 50 fine establishments, you can rest easy knowing you’ll be having a better time than anyone else in the state”.


So if you’re looking for the absolute best beer bar experience in Connecticut–the Thrillist experts say to go to:

Eli Cannon’s Tap Room in Middletown

I went to Eli Cannon’s for the first time recently, and I agree, this place is rad. Tons of beer options, great food, great vibe…then there’s the crazy backyard patio and fake beach area. Perfect place to hang out all summer long.
