An Excruciatingly Opinionated Guide to the Shoreline

Stony Creek Brewery, Branford

Wait. Where are we? Williamsburg? Nope, it’s just the super exciting Stony Creek Brewery. Craft beer enthusiasts and newbies alike will love the tastings here in the modern taproom or spacious deck overlooking the Branford River. Sample a flight of fresh brewed IPA (we liked The Little Cranky and NOT just for its name) and amber Lager. It’s the sort of fresh, modern bar you won’t want to leave and owner Ed Crowley and family make it easy to hang around, luring you with brewery tours and a game pit. Take some brew home in an 8 oz “Crowler”, filled sealed and labeled right before your eyes. Or grab the traditional 64 oz “Growler ($12). As for noshing, for now it’s just pretzels at the bar, but don’t miss the food truck in the parking lot. Depending on the day, you can feast on Caseus’ grilled cheese, Zuppardi’s classic New Haven style pizza, Shoreline Prime and more. Check the schedule for details.
