Pictures: Connecticut Winter Beer Festival At City Steam

Virtually all of Connecticut's beer industry gathered under one roof Thursday at City Steam, for the first CT Beer Trail/City Steam Winter Beer Fest. The event welcomed breweries, brew pubs and home-brewing businesses. Guests sampled dozens of beers, including specialty, reserve and unusual experimental batches; along with a sumptuous buffet of German fare (pork schnitzel, sauerbraten, kielbasa, spaetzle) crowned by whole suckling pig.
