You probably didn’t know it, but next week happens to be “Connecticut Beer Week” when the state is celebrating the growing brewery industry. With that in mind, Jim Altman and Tim Lammers hit the trail, specifically the beer trail. The duo starts just over the border in Rhode Island and taps into all the local flavor.
Most area breweries offer tours and tastings on weekends including Grey Sail, Cottrell, and “Beer’d.” For something a bit closer to the Hartford area, you can check out the Thomas Hooker Brewery in Bloomfield, Conn.
