Our Story

Eli Cannons Tap Room was the Connecticut innovator of the modern 'beer bar'. We insisted on only serving micro brewed beers and non main stream imports, much to the dismay of the big three that must remain nameless (BUD, MILLER and COORS). With only 6 taps at the time, rotation was key. When one half barrel kicked a different style was tapped. This ensured variety and forced customers (some physically) into trying something new. The customers we lost as a result of our philosophy, were never our customers anyway. They left. And made room for all of you, and for that we are thankful.
