Forest City has become one of my favorite CT breweries. The beer is good and staff friendly. The tap room is small but wasn't crowded the day I visited. I really liked the kolsch. All four beers on tap that day were good.

This was a nice local brewery! They had 3 different beers in tap when I went. You can order a flight or a pint. They also do growler fills. It was a little crowded when I went, but worth the wait!

Stopped here while visiting Stubborn next door. Brand new brewery in fact will be closed labor day weekend for upgrades. Definitely shows potential. Only 3 beers on tap. Picked up a squealer for later. Will definitely stop back.
