I loved the tour at this site. The tour guide was very informative and very open to questions with quick answers. The ladies that helped us with our flights and souvenirs were also very nice and helpful with smiles. The atmosphere was welcoming and warm. Would revisit. Got the groupon for my husband as a gift and he had such a great time! Would gladly come back for a leisure afternoon.

About Thimble Island Brewing Company

Named for a small archipelago off the Branford coast, Thimble Island Brewing Company began with the home-brewed concoctions of Connecticut Natives Justin Gargano and Mike Fawcett. Though they lacked formal training, the duo tirelessly spent nights and weekends tinkering with their recipes until they sold their first pint of American Ale to KC's Pub in Guilford. Today, American Ale is one of the brewery's six mainstay beers, which Justin and Mike craft along with specialty batches such as a dark pumpkin porter. The twosome keeps six beers on tap at Thimble Island's tasting room, where visitors can drop in to fill up a growler, buy a t-shirt, or take a tour. Outside the brewery, Justin and Mike's beers grace many local establishments, including pubs and grocery stores across Connecticut.
