Weekend update, Pt. 2

Okay, part two. Today we'll be covering CT and RI. Here goes:


Thomas Hooker is holding its weekly beer tasting on Saturday the 13th. They're also holding an open house on Friday the 19th. Go grab a Hooker.

Carlson Craft Brewery has released its seasonal Yule Ale, and they're particularly miffed that people keep writing about tasting "winter spice" in it. For the record, there aren't any spices. None. So stop saying there are. Because there aren't any. Not a one. Zero. Honestly.

Southport Brewing Company has a lot going on in its various locations: you've got your brunch at the Southport location, Kid's Night on Fridays at the Stamford location, a DJ on Saturdays from 10:30 to close at the Branford bar, a live band on Fridays at the Milford location, and Karaoke every Thursday night at all locations, including the Hamden location. Check this site for all the updates you need.

The Olde Burnside Brewing Company, brewers of the notable Ten Penny Ale, are holding tastings all over CT this week. Check out their site for times and locations.

I didn't know this, but apparently every Monday at Bru Rm. at BAR, after 10PM, every other pint is a penny. Freakin' awesome! Or you could grab a pitcher of Damn Good Stout for $15. Delicious.

Hops Restaurant is serving Flying Squirrel Nut Brown Ale. Try it with their Jamaican Jerk Steak. TaDYEfah!

Bring in your favorite drinking vessel on Stein Day every Sunday at the Willimantic Brewing Co. for deep discounts. Bring a trash can and a firehose, if you'd like. (Just don't tell 'em I told you to.) You can get an extra 4 oz. of beer for free on Thursdays, too.

Delaney's Taproom welcomes back the C.A.S.C Club on the 20th. If you're not in, get in. You'll be glad you did.

Keep an eye out for Tara's Boulba, Dogfish Head 120 Minute, and Ommegang Chocolate Indulgence on tap at My Place Restaurant. Mmmm, delicious.

No updates from The Cabridge House, City Steam Brewery, John Harvards in Manchester, Cottrell Brewing Co., New England Brewing Co., Eli Cannon's, Prime-16, or the Race Book Brewpub.
