Thimble Islands Brewing Company, Branford

Thimble Island Brewing Company was established in Branford, CT in 2010. Our founders are beer enthusiasts who set out to create well balanced, traditionally crafted beers.

Prior to Prohibition, the United States was home to over 2,000 craft breweries; by the 1980s barely 100 breweries remained. Thimble Island Brewery seeks to recreate the American tradition of having a local brewery that the community can enjoy. Our American Ale is full-flavored yet refreshing enough to be enjoyed year round.

  • Nice crowd of locals. All ages. Nice selection of their drafts reasonably priced. IPA's to Stouts, Lagers and Ale's. If you can't find something you like you might as well drink water๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜†๐Ÿ˜†.. Food selection is minimal. Salami and Cheese. Hummus and Pretzels, or Chips. They did have a food truck out front the night I stored in seemed popular and live music was quite nice. Would definitely come back and would recommend to others.
  • Good outdoor eating area but the beer just isnโ€™t that good
