The Willimantic Brewing Company in Willimantic has been named as a finalist for 2010 Beer Bar of the Year by Nightclub and Bar Magazine. The three other finalists are Maine’s Gritty McDuff’s, Philadelphia’s Eulogy Belgian Tavern and Oklahoma’s City Tapwerks Ale House & Café.
According to the magazine “Entries were submitted by venue owners, operators and managers, as well as suppliers, vendors and other industry members eager to recognize excellence in on-premise concepts, programs, talent and professionalism.”
The winner will be announced in February and special coverage of the winners will be included in the March issue of Nightclub and Bar.
The Willimantic is certainly one of the more unique brew pubs housed in old Post Office building that dates back to 1909. The pub space was originally the customer lobby and the private dining room housed the postmaster's office.
Good luck to the Willimantic in the finals. For more on the Willimantic: http://www.willibrew.com/
