THANK YOU to everyone who voted for us in the CT Now Best of Hartford Readers’ Poll nominating round! We’ve moved on, and have been nominated in several categories!
Join us from Monday, April 2nd through Saturday, April 7 and help us raise a toast to 21 years as the Willimantic Brewing Company (and 27 as the Main Street Café)!
How are we celebrating?
Blast-from-the-past menu items all week!
We’ll be tapping Willibrew beers (including some from our barrel aged cellar) throughout the week and wrapping up when we take over 21 of our lines!!
And we’ll cap it off with a Party in the Pub with RHYTHM STEW on Saturday, April 7th! The fun starts at 9:30!
And it wouldn’t be a Willibrew event if we didn’t #beeritforward! We’ll offer a few ways to raise money for Covenant Soup Kitchen. One is a beer brewed just for the occasion, we’ll have some fun ways to display your artwork behind the bar for a donation, we’ll be donating a percentage of the profit from our daily specials (on Saturday only), AND we’ll be collecting donations on Saturday night.
‘Tis the season for the CTNow Hartford Readers’ Poll! They’re mixing things up a bit this year and are asking you to nominate your favorite organization in appropriate categories. Once nominating ends, they’ll assemble top finalists from each category and official voting will begin on May 1st.
Also, new this year is the ability to start nominating, take a break and then revisit it. Nice!
Please show Willibrew some love!
All New VIP Hour: We’re teaming up with our favorite local historian, Bev York, and our friends at Mercado for our VIP session this year!
