Iím a regular here. I love the place. They have a great rotating tap list of their own (awesome) beers and guest brews. The food is excellent, the service is friendly and quick (but never make you feel rushed to get out). Itís not the cheapest place around, but itís worth the price of admission. Go there, youíll love it.

Great find on the main street in a small town. Old US Post Office which still shows in places. Great service, very nice beer selection with a mix of own brews as well as drafts and bottles from friends. Local and area breweries. Everything on tap can be had in a 5 glass sampler. Total bill for lunch, glass of wine and total of 10 samplers which were 4 oz each was $40 before tip. You canít beat that. Awesome place.

(Visited 06/2013): Willimantic Brewing is east of Hartford, located downtown on Main Street. Street parking is fairly abundant on the surrounding streets.
The brewpub is housed in a former US Post Office building built in 1909. There is a patio on the front of the building. The inside opens immediately to a long bar along the rear wall, and features a large chalkboard listing the beers available, as well as offering a view of the taps. A separate room is devoted to restaurant seating.
Willimantic has around 8 house beers on tap plus a cask. Five-beer samplers are available. On my visit this included a Golden Ale, Ambeerlicious, Summer Solstice IPA, Marinerís Scotch and the cask Strawberry Basil Saison. The beers were pretty good for the most part. Guest breweries on draught include regional selections like Hooker, Back East, Wachusett and Blue Point.
Service on a busy weekday evening at the bar was good. The bartenders were familiar with the beers and attentive throughout my visit.
The menu at Willimantic is pretty robust. I ordered the parmesan-crusted tuna and despite me not being a fan of sea-food I enjoyed it (when in Rome...).
Overall this is a great brewpub and I would definitely visit again if in the area.

Well, I like the old Post Office building, but the interior seems cluttered, particularly around the bar. They seem to cater to the craft drinker and macro drinker alike, though the beers are average. There is plenty of cheap alcohol if craft beers are not your thing. Judging from the tap handle collection throughout the building, they do get some pretty good taps occasionally.

I got in a mid-week dinner time visit here based on positive reviews here. It is an amazing building, but I think theyíve couldíve done better with it. I sampled 5 brews, all OK. The menu was fairly expansive, and my steak wrap was tasty enough. Service was spot on. Decent, but maybe a tad overrated here. (Brewery #596)

Iíve been coming here for years, as itís the closest brewpub to my in-laws. Weíve always found it to be a kid-friendly establishment with decent food and solid (sometimes great) beers. And you canít beat the postal vibe.

Craft brewery and restaurant in a 1918-build post office. The food and beer are both outstanding. This place keeps Willimantic on the map. Itís worth a drive up if youíre at Foxwoods or Mohegan Sun, about a half hour or a little more.

Great variety with new beers coming out almost daily. Iím an IPA guy and am in heaven generally. If they donít have a house brew that suits my taste thereís always a great guest brew on tap.

I was there a while ago...maybe within a year, but I do not remember it being as good as everyone else is posting. The ambiance is their best attribute, and they have quality beer. I could see being a regular if I lived in the area, but I was not excessively impressed being an outsider.
