The Vibes
This place is pretty cool spot to hang with beach / tiki patio theme with country music out back. Eli Cannon's Tap Room offers an elite lineup of rare beers from sought-after breweries in Connecticut and beyond in a variety of styles. You'll be hard-pressed to find better beer selections anywhere. Eli’s enjoys a small community atmosphere among its patrons — and staff, many of whom have worked there for years. Pair all of this with a punk-rock attitude and great indoor space as well, and Eli Cannon’s is a destination to seek out.
The Story
One of Connecticut’s oldest craft beer bars, Eli Cannon’s has been serving quality brews since 1994. This is a family owned business with Aubrey and Rocco Lamonica, husband and wife team running the show. First week of every August on a Monday (yes, Monday), save the date for their annual charity beer fest. One of the best to attend in CT.
