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. Can’t 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. I’d 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. It’s ipa are it’s stars but I really like their porters too. Plenty of guest brews on Tap. Average craft beer quality. Food is slightly under average but it’s 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 couldn’t actually have. Wouldn’t have been a problem if they’d just been erased from the board and I didn’t 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 IPA’s 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, I’m fine with that. I didn’t spend any time in the town itself, but I think this place is the only reason I would come back. It does deserve it’s "world class" rating.

I love it here. A must visit. The beers are on a constant rotation including some of the harder to find guest stuff, and a never-ending selection of their own inventive stuff. The staff are great the food is delicious and in huge portions. Go there.

Having recently visited for my first time for dinner and a few pints, I’m reluctant to give a full review, because I don’t feel like I have a grip for this place overall. The beers were good, reasonably priced, and well-poured. Our waitress was accomodaitng and friendly. The ambiance was unique and fun. We ate on the less formal bar side. I’d like to go back and visit the fancier side - I don’t know if it has a different menu. On the bar side, the food was hit or miss. A turkey reuben with steak fries came on toasted white bread and the fires were limp and soggy. A veggie burger was underwhelming, while veggie chili was solid. I look forward to returning for some more good brews and a second look at the food, but my first impression did not blow me away.

I travelled and stayed far from home to see this brewpub, and did come away disapointed. No heavy abvs here in the summer, I was pleased to find three saisons on tap. Near a Best Western, a half hour from Hartford. A very decent and very generous guest tap selection.Roomy inside, with a small but nice patio outside. Good mix of people, ages, decorum. A few rooms filled with tables in this historical building. Parking lot. Near an unusual bridge with big frogs. Bartenderess was a little annoyed at the end of what looked like a hot fussy day,but did not bother me.
