We think there’s something special about drinking beer at the place it is brewed. A proper taproom isn’t just a place to knock back a brew. A visit to a top rate taproom should be an experience, a place to meet up with friends to remember a great day, or forget a bad one.
Our taproom and covered patio are the perfect hangout spot! Tucked away in Suffield, Connecticut, it’s a great place to watch football, have parties, and try out some of our great fare! Our brick oven pizza menu’s 12 selections, beer chili, craft burgers, and pork sliders are just a sampling of the mouthwatering dishes prepared by our executive chef. Our entire menu is available for take out all the time.
There are many benefits of pizza made in a brick oven which cannot be duplicated in a conventional oven:
Higher cooking temperature – Heat radiates out from the heat source, is spread around the oven, and ultimately absorbed by the interior brick walls. By keeping a continuous small fire going on inside the oven, these temperatures can be maintained. A really good pizza is made in this environment.
Faster cooking time – Because of the high heat stored in the dense walls, the brick oven is designed to cook pizza very quickly. It takes two to three minutes maximum for the pizza to cook!
Better crust – At such high temperatures, any moisture in the dough is sealed off. This prevents the base of the dough from becoming soggy and results in a flavorful crust that’s puffy, yet soft and chewy.
Unique flavor – Only a wood-fired brick oven pizza imparts that unique smoky flavor that cannot be reproduced in a normal kitchen oven. The high temperature produces other flavors not achieved by slow cooking.
Crispier toppings – The intense heat and constant airflow generated in the brick oven seals and cooks the toppings evenly and quickly. The vegetable toppings will be crispier than those produced on pizzas made in a conventional oven.
