We stopped in Waterbury to visit Alchemist Brewery on the way down to the Harpoon BBQ.
The brewery is new and modern and has a tasting area where they charge you $1 for a 3oz glass of their Heady Topper beer. As others have mentioned it would be nice if they could re-open an eating area.
The beer is very hoppy and runs at 8% ABV (so you're not going to be drinking a lot of them). If you let it warm up a bit, the beer really develops and you get some really nice tasting notes.
Definitely worth the trip!
