NEBCOsmallI’ve made no secret on this site and via the Twitters that I am an unabashed fan of NEBCO beers. Anytime I’ll be heading up or down the Wilbur Cross near the tunnel, I try to remember to bring a growler or two for a quick stop at the nondescript but always great brewery in Woodbridge.

If you’re lucky, they’ll have some rarities lying around. I was lucky during one such stop and scored a very rare 668 Chardonneighbor Of The Beast bottle. Rare because it’s a Chardonneighbor and rare because it’s a NEBCO beer in a bottle. (And also rare because I didn’t like it at all, but we’ll get into that on its own page.)

NEBCO makes the styles of beer that I love: IPAs, stouts, porters, imperials, dubbels, trippels, and even a quad. They make them with care and label them with wit and humor. For these reasons, I usually say that New England Brewing Company is my current favorite CT brewery.
