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.

Located in an old school post office building, so the interior is huge and stately. This place is big. One side is bar/pub and one side is restaurant. I sat at the bar. They are a hybrid brewpub/beer bar so they have lots of guest taps and bottles of high quality. Their house beers were all good with a couple standouts. Samplers are 5 beers from either the house brews or guest taps, and I THINK are 5.95 for 4 ounce samples. The menu is expansive and affordable. I had some decent sliders and the nachos the guy next to me ordered were excellent. The bartenders managed to be attentive and very friendly despite being very busy. They were working hard. There is a large parking lot that is not sufficient but there is parking on the side street. Nice brewpub.

Stopped in only to pick up a growler and left wishing Iíd had more time to grab a few at the bar. Awesome use of the old bank building. Service was pretty quick, even on a packed Friday evening. A bunch of house beers on tap plus a pretty extensive guest lineup. I wanted to try so many but opted for the summer saison- for which my taste buds were handsomely rewarded. Will definitely budget more time for this place next time I come through the area.

What a great building for a brewpub! The bar is massive, and the building is so large that the restaurant portion feels separate. They had more than ten of their own brews on, and then a dozen or so from other regionals. Food was good. Wow, I could live here and make this place my local very easily.

Great use of space in this old post office. Extensive and diverse food menu, and the food was quite good. Canít give it a 5 for ambiance because of the washroom. Not dirty, but old and kinda cheap looking. An afterthought. The selection of their beers was fairly limited, and the guest taps were not particularly inspiring. Lot of local stuff though, which is good. Nice selection of bottles. Nice patio. Iíd go back any time.

Thr brewer/owner here makes great beers and also has many excellent guest beers on draft and in bottles. This place is unique as it is an old post office turned into a brewery/restaurant/bar. High cielings, nice atmosphere and always a good time. Highly recommended and is one of the best (if not the best) bars in CT for those who love craft beers - especially the house made IPA chioces..

Decent brewery especially for the area. Itís ipa are itís stars but I really like their porters too. Plenty of guest brews on Tap. Average craft beer quality. Food is slightly under average but itís fine. Beautiful building, the old post office in willimantic.

Stopped in on the way home from Boston, coming down a different route so we could check out this place. Quite glad we did. The building itself is just beautiful, a big reclaimed post office turned into a brewpub. As much of the original interior that could be worked into the brewpub as been left intact. Service was quick and friendly, food was good as well. The beers were all well made (and the postal theme of many of their names is excellent) and my only let down was that there were a couple on the chalkboard that were no longer available. So it was really just the promise of more tasty beers from them that I couldnít actually have. Wouldnít have been a problem if theyíd just been erased from the board and I didnít know that a day earlier I could have had it. Alas, ignorance is bliss sometimes. Certainly will be stopping back in here again.

Located in an old post office and yet feels surprisingly intimate. They have 10 different things on tap of their own stuff plus 12+ guest taps. The ubiquitous pizza was flavorful and properly cooked. The bar staff was professional and attentive. They had a lot of IPAís on tap some great others not so much. Still well worth the trip.

An old US Post Office building with excellent pub-type atmosphere and friendly people inside. The stuff brewed on the premises was excellent and our waitress was top notch. The calamari was fried extra crispy without excessive batter. They have at least twenty guest taps ranging from DFH to Rogue, but nothing foreign, Iím fine with that. I didnít spend any time in the town itself, but I think this place is the only reason I would come back. It does deserve itís "world class" rating.
