Half Full is the perfect place for happy people who like beer (hoptimists). I love their positive outlook and branding.

The brewery is tucked in an industrial area of Stamford. They have a comfortable indoor taproom with seating and games available (no outdoor seating though). The drinking options were $7 for 5 samples or $15 for a pint glass and unlimited tasting. I chose the $15 because I really wanted a pint glass from the brewery, and was super disappointed when I was told they were not in stock and received the mini-glass for the other sample. I wish they had told me before I ordered, because I would not have chosen that option.

The beer was pretty good! I especially enjoyed the Kolsch and Bright Ale. Drop by and check them out!!

Hey Stephanie, Thanks for swinging by the Tasting Room! Glad you enjoyed the beers. If you live local, we just got the Pint Glasses back in stock and we'd be happy to get you one. If you want to shoot an email over to info@halffullbrewery.com we can organize a hand off. Cheers! -HFB

My husband and I wanted a relaxing weekend and this was the perfect place to spend the afternoon. The staff were super nice and helpful. When we got confused when we pulled in ( the place is located in an industrial building) the bartender actually came outside in the rain to show as in. The places is decked out modern hipster ish with positive slogans all around. There's comfy coach and jinga in the tables to play with and make friends. We choose the smaller of the two options ( half full) but between my husband and I we tasted all the flavor a and they were delicious. We came at noon when it was pretty empty buy by three the place was getting packed. The tour was free and a bit short but you can ask as many questions so if you get a big group that asks allot of questions you learn allot. My only issue is they don't serve food although your welcome to bring your own or they give you menus to order delivery. We weren't hungry but I was dying for some chips or nuts or something. They need to put in a vending machine at the very least.

I am so proud to say that Stamford has its own brewery and better yet when the beers are AWESOME. We finally made it here after attempting twice before to visit. The first time we thought we had the wrong address and the second time we found no parking (the only downside of this brewery-small parking lot). My husband and I decided to order two $7 tastings (you get to try 5 beers for $7-Not bad at all). Some of the beers we tasted were CELEBRATE EVERYTHING, SENSIBLE DECISION (My Favorite), LIQUID HOPTIMISM, BRIGHT and ONWARD. The glass is yours to keep at the end of your tasting. We also enjoyed a wonderful tour of the brewery conducted by Jordan. Tours are free. I can't wait to visit again. If you are in Stamford, love beer and don't mind being in a small space, stop by Half Full Brewery. By the way, you can bring your own snacks/food. SALUD-CHEERS!!!!

Had a great time at this small brewery. Had never heard of it before staying in Stamford and googling breweries in the area. Beer was awesome and staff was great. Jack the tasting room manager was very friendly and knowledgeable. Can't wait to return. Next time will bring a few snacks to eat since you are allowed to bring in your own food!!

What a nice little brewery! Fresh beer on tap, a nice lounge and a really cool facility, where they produce their brew, just on the back of the bar!

Hey Nootrac, Thanks for stopping by! And thanks for the compliment on our "lounge" aka the Tasting Room. We worked really hard to make it nice, so it means a lot that you liked it! Cheers, HFB

This is so cool! They are in a popup tent for the winter with couches, games, food truck grub, AND toddlers! There are a bunch of guys babysitting while there wives are shopping /traveling who are playing with their kids while sipping beer with their friends. They aren't getting drunk, just hanging out. It is safe, comfortable, and the beer is excellent. They also have wine if that is your thing. Bathrooms are in a clean trailer within 50 feet.
