Surfridge Brewing Co

Centerbrook, Connecticut

Surfridge Brewing is a taproom and eatery nestled in the beautiful Witch Hazel Works property in Centerbrook, Connecticut. With a 10-barrel copper and brass system and a natural, airy vibe, the space reflects the connection between timeless New England sophistication with California roots.

Fresh brews, wood-fired pizzas, and local oysters are just a few of the delicious items offered at the cozy taproom. Our space is family-friendly, great for small or large groups, and our patio in the summer makes for a great place to have a pint with your pup.  We also offer hand-crafted cocktails and Jonathan Edwards Winery wine.

Our mural by the talented Trek6, captures our tribute to the whales that have been a part of the rich history in Connecticut, as well as blue butterflies that have an interesting origin story with Surfridge.

Great locationGood beerFriendly staff
Response from the owner: Cheers! Thank you for the review!
So happy we stopped here during our weekday getaway to Essex, CT. Food, beer and entertainment were great! We had the Charcuterie board, Caesar salad, pepperoni pizza and mushroom pizza. Kids enjoyed the wings and pizza from kids menu. I was happy to see they had a beer flight so I could sample my favorites.
Response from the owner: Thanks for stopping by on your weekday getaway! Happy to hear you enjoyed everything!
Bartender recommend a surfridge IPK on nitro, I believe it was, highly recommend trying this in your visit!
Response from the owner: Neal, thank you for taking the time to leave a review. That is our Surfridge IPK on nitro. We agree, it is delicious!
We had an incredible experience at Surfridge. Fantastic service with Olivia as our waitress, not to mention we had 3 kids under 3 with us and they made it feel extremely kid friendly. I highly recommend this Brewery to anyone!

SUCH a great place. Awesome location. Very cool and engaging owners and staff who VERY much care about the service, quality of food, and the beers they craft. Burger and beer special currently going on every Weds is VERY much worth it. Thanks, Steve, for taking the extra time to tell us what you have in the tanks and what we can look forward to this summer. Surfbridge has it all when it comes to beer, food, and unique entertainment. Just five stars all around! 🌟
