Pies and Pints is neighborhood pizzeria and pub that offers visitors casual dining, award winning food, and an extensive craft beer selection with a friendly atmosphere. Chefs prepare half-pound burgers, gourmet pizzas, fresh salads, and inspired daily specials. The sheer size of the beer selection is also unusual. The Waterbury location, for instance, has 28 draft beers tapped and ready to pour. Most of the beer on offer is as carefully crafted as the food, and the owners often like to show off the two side-by-side with special prix fixe beer dinners that include a beer pairing with every course.

Shebeen is the Irish Gaelic word for illegal brewhouse, or speakeasy. But for Irish-born head brewer Rich, Shebeen Brewing is the formalization of 25 years of homebrewing. That's 25 years experimenting with unique flavors and ingredients; so in addition to classic styles such as irish pale ales and rye porters, Shebeen offers a rotating roster of specialty beers.

The brewery's most famous is the cannoli beer, made with vanilla, cinnamon, and nutmeg, and served with a dusting of powdered sugar and shaved chocolate. Like the cannoli beer, many of Rich's creations focus on sweeter or spicier ingredients as opposed to aggressive use of hops. This results in concoctions such as the bacon Kona stout, or the wine-like saison made with concord-grape extracts. But Rich doesn't shy away from bolder flavors?one slightly green-hued brew pairs the cooling flavor of cucumbers with hot wasabi. Customers can sample the range of creative beers during tastings or tours, or carry home growlers for a more fun, rewarding alternative to lifting weights.

With the exact same management, cooking staff, and emblematic painting since its founding in 1989, Mona Lisa Restaurant has had nearly three decades to perfect its Italian and Mediterranean cuisine. It was three decades well spent. Today, the eatery serves veal piccata, new york strip steaks, and a rack of lamb brushed with dijon mustard. They also serve rich pasta dishes such as penne ala vodka with prosciutto and light cream, the angel hair and shrimp adriatico with sweet peppers and a white wine sauce, and the Southern Italian sampler, made up of manicotti, ravioli, eggplant, meatballs, and sausage. The fine food is matched by an equally excellent drink selection, which includes dry, sweet, and fruity martinis, vintage ports and cognacs, and a top-tier scotch selection that includes Bordeaux-finished Bowmore and an 18-year Glenlivet.

As many as 130 beers and a smattering of spirits anoint tasting glasses, letting beer connoisseurs expand their palates wider than that of a whale sommelier. A selection of food complements the diverse brews, and attendees can sit and listen or get up and groove while live bands electrify the air with popular tunes.

SBC Restaurant & Brewery lines up an inviting smorgasbord of comfort food to be devoured alongside an arsenal of brewed on-site beers. Take in the expanse of the appetite-assassinating lunch menu (served from 11:30 a.m.–3 p.m.) and try not to set off the fire alarms while your head smokes with indecision before easing yourself in with the SBC calamari, which comes prepared three ways: crispy with marinara and rémoulade, fried with hot peppers and artichoke hearts, and sticky with a sweet chili Sriracha glaze ($6.99). Follow that up with the crispy chicken salad, festooned with mandarin oranges, grape tomatoes, gorgonzola, and honey white balsamic vinaigrette ($12.99), or the margherita pizza topped with sliced fresh tomatoes, garlic, mozzarella and basil ($10). SBC burgers are 8 ounces of natural custom-quality beef served on a handmade roll and topped with american, provolone, cheddar, swiss, fontina, or mozzarella cheese ($7.99).
