With the increased growth of independent breweries in Connecticut, it is an honor for Willibrew to be the only nomination in the State. Willimantic Brewing Company is a part of the Connecticut Beer Trail and our owner/head brewer, David Wollner, is the Vice-President of the Connecticut Craft Brewers’ Guild. The nomination is also significant for the State of Connecticut in its efforts to promote tourism. In keeping with the Still Revolutionary theme, our restaurant and pub brewery is located in a 1909 Federal Post Office building.

“Let’s show the rest of the country what we already know, that Connecticut is home to some really great beer.” said David Wollner, Brewmaster at The Willimantic Brewing Co.
