Cheshire Craft Brewing Company – Cheshire, CT
Opening: February 2021

Cheshire Craft Brewing is looking forward to providing a venue and beer that promotes community gatherings and local spirit.  The overall concept of Cheshire Craft is not about being big and loud.  They are committed to their customer base and producing beers the community wants to drink. A distinct feature about their location is the 1500 square foot patio, off the back of the building.  As you walk through the 10 x 10-foot glass door you will enter an outdoor area that will be transformed into a beer garden/patio space. They are all about providing an experience that lends itself to bringing the community together to socialize and enjoy each other’s company.

Cisco Brewers at The Village – Stamford, CT
Opening Date: May 2021

Cisco Brewers is launching its first Connecticut location at The Village in Stamford. Cisco Brewers will be an outdoor waterfront experience featuring a wrap-around patio and views. Cisco Brewing Company fully renovated a historic building that is well over a hundred years old. It was first a wire and cable company in the early 1900s that connected Connecticut and Long Island. In fact, during construction, workers uncovered a 13-ton metal wheel, which will sit adjacent to Cisco’s outdoor space. In addition to their beer offerings, this unique space will feature a restaurant, a private event space, and rotating pop-ups, and music.

Spacecat Brewing Company – Norwalk, CT
Opening: Spring 2021

Spacecat Brewing Company will be welcoming guests this spring in Historic South Norwalk. The name is meant to show people that they are free to let loose and be a little weird if they want to be. Guests of the brewery should enjoy the beer how it is intended: stress free and with those you love. The brewery is being built in the Historic J & J Cash Ltd. Textile Mill. They’ve kept all of the original steel truss work hanging from the ceiling, sandblasted and exposed all the original brick, repaired the giant factory windows with traditional hand-blown glass, and restored the 100 year old maple floor in the entryway and taproom. Spacecat will be offering a wide variety of beer styles from Traditional Belgian Ales, Light Lagers, Mixed Fermentation, Dessert and Winter Stouts, Seasonal Ales, their take on the hazy-juicy IPA craze, and a constantly rotating series of super-small-batch experimental brews.
