Drinking a Beer in all 169 CT Cities and Towns

Last year I had a beer in all 351 Massachusetts towns and raised approximately $40,000 for cancer research. This year I will be having a beer in all 169 CT towns to raise money for Smilow Children’s Hospital at Yale-New Haven. I am excited to meet all the great people in Connecticut.

Check out the places I will be going or where I’ve been using one of the links above. You can send me suggestions too!¬†You can follow me on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, and right here throughout the year to track my progress!

Broad Brook Brewing

I can’t say enough about Bryon Turner from ctbeertrail.net. He runs bus tours every month or so and goes to cool breweries. Usually there are between 20-30 people on the bus. It includes stops, tours, and tastings at each brewery and lunch at a fun bar. Broad Brook was the first stop on this bus tour. This is a cool brew pub in East Windsor. It’s only been around since October and it’s already very popular. They are coming out with cans for the summer.

Popped into Sneekers to have a beer and the owner did a quick raffle for a gift card. Raised over $200 bucks! Nice people, and a great place!

Beer’d & Handlebar Cafe

Raised almost $1,200 at Beer’d and Handlebar Cafe in Stonington. Both very generous places. Beer’d sold tulip glasses with half the money going towards the charity, and Handlebar had a 50/50 plus raffle prizes. Such a great day!

Middletown

Eli Cannon’s

Easily the most suggested place for me to go in all of Connecticut. They have 34 beers on tap and such a fun place. Raised over $300 and had some great beers including both of the Igor’s Dreams from 2013 & 2014. Went over to NoRA for some cupcakes across the street.
