Fairfield County is home to more than just great shopping, dining and beaches: It is an artisanal hub of microbreweries, refineries, and distilleries, where you can spend entire afternoons brew-sampling, beer-tasting, and cider-swilling.
On your next visit to the DELAMAR Southport, see what’s on tap at our favorite local breweries and distilleries:
Aspetuck Brew Lab (Black Rock, CT)
Fresh, clean water and bold flavors anchor the beers at Aspetuck Brew Lab, a Black Rock brewery that offers eight on-tap beers, plus hard cider and wine. Born from the waters of the Aspetuck River – in the Algonquin language, the “river originating at the high place” – these craft brews promise a pairing for every palate: from the nutty comfort of the Pierce American Brown Ale, to the sessionable Yes, Please House Lager, to the sultry and dessert-worthy Sweet Synthesis Stout.
Swing by Aspetuck for a taster flight or pint, or pick up a growler-to-go for your room at DELAMAR Southport.
Two Roads Brewing (Stratford, CT)
Take the beer-road less traveled at Two Roads Brewing in Stratford. Step into the craft brewery and onsite tasting room, and you step into a celebration of friendship and outside-the-box thinking – of unique brews that put a twist on classic beer styles. Pull up a stool and sample Two Roads’ seven year-round on-tap offerings, from the cold-brew coffee stout Espressway to the Lil’ Heaven Session IPA. Seasonal brews infuse fresh New England flavors, such as the upcoming Roadsmary’s Baby pumpkin ale and Route of All Evil black ale.
On September 16 and 17, Two Roads Brewing will host its 5th Annual “Ok2berfest” celebration, where festive beers will come reinforced by local food trucks and live German music.
Asylum Distillery (Bridgeport, CT)
With a name like Asylum, you can be sure this distillery serves up some personality with its liquor. The focus here is on artisanal spirits, crafted from the highest quality local ingredients, such as non-GMO, Connecticut-grown corn. A passion for the distilled arts fuels Asylum’s small-batch liquors – sublime on the tongue, whether it’s vodka, gin, or whiskey in your glass.
During your next stay at the DELAMAR Southport, make time for an artisan beverage crawl to Aspetuck Brew Lab, Two Roads Brewing, and Asylum Distillery. When you’ve had your fill of craft brews and spirits, wind down at our own Artisan Restaurant, Tavern & Garden. Because great drink deserves a follow-up of great food.
