Connecticut Taproom Partners

A New Type of Taproom

While many breweries and taprooms are shifting away from food service, often relying on food trucks to fill the void, Surfridge owners Jen & Steve Lieberman had a different idea for their Connecticut location. Their idea was to combine some of their favorite items into one concept: Craft Beer + Raw Bar.

This idea ballooned into adding a custom-built wood oven on site to offer hot pizza and other hot items. From there a unique and creative menu was born built on the following concepts:

  • Local Ingredients
  • Fresh Ingredients
  • High-Flavor Dishes

Local Partnerships Key to Success

Yes, Surfridge Brewing Co is an award-winning brewery, but we also offer a full cocktail menu, mocktail menu, and food menu as well. To do this we partner with local and regional businesses who share our passion for high quality products produced locally. Below are just some of the amazing Connecticut and regional companies we partner with and sell products from at our Connecticut location.

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! 🌟

I went for the beer & will return for the snacks. Don't get me wrong, the beer was good. The food was unique & outstanding. They could use some acoustic dampeners, but otherwise we had a great time & will be back.

My husband and I were visiting Connecticut and showed up at this brewery before they opened. We were sitting at their outside patio and the owner, Steve, came out and greeted us and let us in to have a beer! Steve chatted with us at the bar and told us his story while opening up for the day, such an incredible guy!!! Beer was great and the inside atmosphere is decorated so cool with plenty of space and seating. Highly recommend!!!

This place was awesome! The ambiance is definitely on point. They have many options for seating including a nice outdoor area. We didn’t get the food, but the menu sounded delish. The beers were really good. I had “we used to be friends” and tasted a few others - all very good. Johnny our server was super cool, very attentive and informative on the beer selection. Definitely do not skip this place!

My family and I headed to Surfridge after a nice day enjoying the Essex railroad. We hadn't eaten all day and were ready to EAT! Our waiter Alex was very attentive. We ordered quite a variety of things to try because everything on the menu sounded so good, and it was! The short rib and meatball pizzas were so tasty with a thin crust that is our favorite. Don't hesitate to try the smoked fish dip, wings or Brussel sprouts. My husband had a stout that he enjoyed and the rest of us had delicious cocktails. We live about an hour away but won't hesitate to come back to enjoy more of the beers and goodness from the menu.

Excellent food, great portion sizes and fun atmosphere. Great for our family with three kids, who colored, read books and enjoyed the food! The tiramisu impressed and surprised us the most. The green pesto short rib pizza was so delicious, I’ll be trying to recreate at home.

Enjoyable and relaxed atmosphere, the waitress (Olivia) was a sweetheart and very attentive. The watermelon salad was unique and delicious. Thin crust pizza was really good. I could see this place becoming a favorite haunt. [All I would change is to add coffee to the menu.]

A rare treat to have an excellent brewery and restaurant in one location. Indoor and outdoor dining options lets us change up the experience seasonally. A limited menu but they execute well on everything they serve and seasonal changes keeps it interesting. A frequent dining spot for us.
