Our goal is to continuously honor long-held brewing traditions while exploring new and innovative methods to highlight each ingredient and delight your palate with every sip. We’ll delve into passion projects focused on wild yeast and wood aging, while continuing to evolve the definition of what a big, flavorful, hoppy beer can be. From beautiful, rustic Belgian ales and refined, sturdy German lagers to bright, hop-forward American IPA's, we will venture on an exciting odyssey of brewing. As we explore, we hope that you’ll join us.
Love Counterweight, its people, and its tasty offerings! Food truck was just OK.
I had a great experience and the beer was really awesome.
Awesome experience and great staff.
A wonderful evening!
Counter Weight has the best beer and the best staff. Totally on top of COVID cleanliness.
The beer tenders were all very attentive and informative.
It was so good to be back! Excellent service and so happy to catch up with everyone.
Great venue, beers and the staff were very friendly. I like the extra cleaning process they have with their restrooms. Can’t wait to come back!
Wonderful afternoon on the new patio! CW took every precaution to keep folks distanced and to keep their place clean, and the beers were great as always. Awesome food truck too! Thanks, CW!!
They have taken all pandemic precautions and then some. They have gone above and beyond to make their guests feel comfortable While enjoying the brewery and beers. It was great to be back.
Awesome experience we will be back. It’s clear they’re taking precautions serious.
Love this place!
They took extra care and offered great service (and of course great beer). I expected nothing less from Counterweight! Highly recommend.
As soon as we got out of the car I smelled cleaning products which to me, during a global pandemic, is a good sign. Service and beer were excellent per usual. Food truck was delicious as well!
It was awesome to get back to Counterweight for a fresh pour from the tap room and good food. As always the service team was very pleasant and welcoming. Greg, Michael and Tylor (a.k.a the velvet hammer) made sure it was a pleasant experience. Looking forward to going back and seeing the rest of the ten in the future.
Fantastic service and great beer selection!
The beer was fantastic and the server was super attentive and nice. The outdoor patio was very well designed.
Great place, fantastic people, spot on beer. Also love the wine and cider options too
I absolutely love this place but furthermore they were not over crowded, extremely clean and very safe place to get out and hang for a few hours
Pretty dang near perfect. I feel they waited the right amount of time before opening up for sit downs. This is why they remain my favorite brewery.
Wonderful time. Can’t wait to go again.
Always a great and safe time at Counter Weight! The staff are top notch!
GREAT to be back, already looking forward to the next visit
Best brewery in Connecticut
Great brew and Counter Weight crew treat you right
They have always been a great spot to hang out, but I was SO impressed with the new protocol for COVID. They did a great job of still making people feel comfortable while communicating clear expectations for safety. It was much appreciated!
Day one of reopening was brilliant. I called the number as instructed, waited by my car to be signaled it was my turn to go inside, and was pointed to my designated table in a timely fashion. The food truck was on point and had a contactless menu via your cell phone. Draft options were plentiful and that too was an easy transaction. They coordinated the day wonderfully and I look forward to going back soon!
You need to figure out what to do with your waste. At times, the smell was sickening!!! Otherwise, LOVED the beers I tried, and the patio is very nice. It’s clean, inviting and a perfect place to relax. Thank you!
Whole patio area smelt like actual dirty diapers for some reason. Food truck, beer and waiter were magnificent.
We were so glad you are open. The service was outstanding. Both from the person who greeted us and our server. We really felt safe and appreciated the sun shades. The only thing that negatively affected my rating is the smell of garbage. I don’t know where the dumpster was located but our table really got a strong wafting of this smell. The beer smelled good so we just had to keep drinking! Welcome back!
It felt great to be back at our favorite brewery. However, there was a weird vibe in the air. It kind of felt like we were locked in a cage. The staff was great! Love those guys! The beer is always fantastic too. However, it just felt a little weird. My suggestion would be to add some more tables outside and open up the inside taproom with safe spacing between the tables. No bar service either. Table service only. Most of the other breweries have been using that format for a while and it seems to be working out great. You would only need one person at the door to control the amount of people. Sterilize tables between parties and have patrons wear masks when they are not seated in their areas (restroom break, etc.) Love Counterweight Brewing but would like to see them relax a little bit more. No issues have been reported at the other breweries so far so I think that this would be appropriate. Thanks!
