We're a mom & pop urban, craft brewery and taproom hidden in the historic and vibrant neighborhood of Parkville, Hartford. With a constantly rotating tap list of in-house brewed beers, each visit becomes an adventure.Before you head to Hartford, plan trip itinerary details with our user-friendly Hartford trip builder site, to make sure you see all that Hartford has to offer, including Hog River Brewing Company.
Our flagship Kölsch-style beer (our only constant beer selection) sets the tone for our approach to beer. We favor classic German styles - Dunkelweizens, Hefeweizens and Schwarzbiers - but brew across the craft beer style map including Pale Ales, IPAs, Cream Ales, Browns, Porters, Stouts, Smoked Red, Saison, etc.
Within our taproom you'll find pieces of manufacturing history, large and small, carried over from when the space was Hartford Rubber Works, later Pope Manufacturing. With an industrial slant but laid-back vibe, folks feel at home in 'Hartford's Living Room." You'll usually find a food truck outside, games inside and good conversation everywhere.
Check out our events schedule - we love to bring unique experiences to the taproom, including live music, barre classes, beer dinners, pop-up maker events and more.
Thanks for checking us out and we hope to see you at the taproom soon!

Real friendly and knowledgable staff. Beers were good. Wanted a dark one to try but the ones that they had were really good. Love the ability to take it home in the cans that press right there.

We did a private event in their back room and can’t recommend it enough. The space is beautiful. Staff was kind, courteous, and extremely helpful in the planning even working out of state. The beers were delicious. Best of all their prices cannot be beat!
Excellent beers. Great selection. Super nice and helpful staff. Highly recommend!
