Hey, Hooker - we love you long time

Friday, January 21, 5-8 p.m.: Open House @ Hooker Brewery, Bloomfield
Saturday, January 22, 12-5 p.m.: Beer Tasting @ Hooker Brewery, Bloomfield


Our regular readers have heard us sing the praises of Hooker Brewery time and again here. Back in the early days of going out as a blog we checked out one of their regular Friday night open houses (for you), and last summer we force-fed their beer to some low grade rockstars (we also made them carry the cooler). But as recently as this week we've acquired new followers, new Facebook friends, and had real-life conversations with folks who don't know what to do with their free time and money in CT. We even met someone who lives in Bloomfield. Wonder if he is aware of the bounty of culture (as in yeast - HA!)  right there in his backyard.

Tonight and every first and third Friday of the month, Hooker brewery hosts an open house with tasting and guided tours. Um, it smells like a brewery up in there, but if you don't mind that, it's a friendly mingle, the beers are tasty, and for $10 you taste as much as you like and go home with a lovely pint glass. And there's plenty of goofy Hooker shwag you can purchase if your wardrobe is lacking in obnoxious sexual innuendo t-shirts and hats. It's winter, which means Hooker's delicious seasonal brew, the Nor'Easter should be on tap. We haven't attended a Saturday tour, but imagine it's a less crowded, more informative variation on the drinking while you learn formula.

Think global, drink local, people!
