Bristol needs a fresh perspective on its current “drinking” culture. Microbreweries and brewpubs are at an all time high in popularity and show no sign of declining. Local CT brewpubs such as Willimantic Brewing Company, City Steam and Southport Brewing are always full of lively crowds and don’t face the same problem that most bars do; that most folks usually don’t go until after 7PM.
Wiki Definition: A “brewpub” brews and sells beer on the premises. A brewpub may also be known as a microbrewery if production has a significant distribution beyond the premises – the American Brewers Association use a fixed 75% of production to determine if a company is a microbrewery.
