East Rock Brewing Company is a small, family-owned brewery located in the heart of the East Rock neighborhood in New Haven, Connecticut. Their family-friendly beer hall is a cheerful social space to gather in celebration of the simple things in life while enjoying one of their 12 draft beers and delicious pretzels from local CT bakery Whole G. While you’re there, we encourage you to take a guided tour of the brewery to learn about the time-honored methods they use to make their beer. CT Industry Insiders will tell you East Rock is the place to go for some of the states best lagers and pilsners. Be sure to order a round (or two, if you dare) in an 30 oz German beer stein! Prosit!
At East Rock, they use time-honored methods and imported ingredients to produce pure and crisp German-inspired beer. Painfully slow to make but a pleasure to drink, their beers undergo a prolonged and labor-intensive fermentation, resulting in an uncommon depth of flavor and natural carbonation. East Rock recently received national recognition when they took home a silver metal for their Vienna Lager at the 2020 Great American Beer Festival.
