Mystic craft brews

Mystic food tours gotta have some brews right? Like much of America, Mystic and the surrounding area has been blessed with a substantial recent influx of quality craft brewing. Local Mystic craft breweries feature a wide range of styles and ever-shifting menus, so anything I write up today will be different next week. Personally I’m a “hazy New England style IPA” guy and virtually everyone has one or several options….after all, we ARE in New England. That being said, a recent check on local craft brew menus turned up some creative local brews:


  • Barley Head Brewery (Mystic)
    Obscurus (Stout) 7% ABV….made entirely from locally grown hops and malt
  • Beer’d (Stonington)
    Stunner for the Win (NEIPA) 7% ABV…double dry hopped induing Mosaic, Galaxy
  • Cottrell (Pawcatuck)
    Stonington Glory (Pilsner) 4.7% ABV….Czech style with crisp finish
  • Grey Sail (Westerly)
    Pour Judgement (IPA) 6% ABV…Citrus forward, IPA hopped
  • Outer Lights (Groton)
    Lonesome Boatman (Ale) 5.6% ABV…Bready, toasty amber ale

We integrate special tastings from these Mystic local craft beers into our tours if you so desire ( we know who’s pouring the freshest new stuff). Let’s go visit via Mystic food tours.
