Why Aspetuck?

The word Aspetuck can be translated as "river originating at the high place" in an Algonquin language. The water that serves as the base for our beers comes from the Aspetuck watershed, fed by the Aspetuck River in the hills of Redding and Easton, Connecticut. The river is one of the cleanest in the state and produces exceptional brewing water that allows us to brew fantastic beers across many different styles.

To us, good beer is elementary. We take a scientific approach to the brewing process, respecting heritage and classic styles, while pushing the boundaries by embracing a healthy appetite for experimentation.

Above all, we believe in fresh, local and flavorful beer of the very best quality. We are having fun brewing up the future in Black Rock as the first brewery in Bridgeport since 1940!

We are open Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays (and Thursdays in the late spring/summer)! We have 8 beers on tap plus hard cider and wine. Bring in your own food; and yes, we are family-friendly (check out our basket of games for all ages)! Our space is available for private events, so please contact us for your next party (capacity 50). Watch for additional special hours, promotions and events.
