Visited the taproom recently and was very impressed by the size of the brewery's operations; their taproom alone is probably 3000sqft. The taproom is on the second floor overlooking the entire brewery below. Besides their own brews, Two Roads also contract brews for craft brewers, hence their size and capacity.
Adjacent to the taproom is a small shop with various merchandise (hats, shirts, coasters, bottle openers) and of course some of their bottled beers. They fill regular and half sized growlers as well, but it has to be one of their growlers.
On to the beers; 5 in total on-tap; Holiday, Imp IPA, Pils, Saison, White IPA. All of the beers were tasty and unique when compared side by side. The Pils was very representative of the style with sharp crispness and subtle hop flavors. The Holiday and Imp IPA were my favorites with intense hop favors and complex malt bill.
Overall, I really enjoyed my visit and will definitely one back again soon.
A few last notes, the brewery offers tours for $5 per person with plenty of beer samples along the tour. Also, you can order food fin local eateries and have them delivered right to the bar; love the idea just like at dba in NYC.

New brewery about 30 minutes from my house, have been here a couple times already. The tasting room is really cool. Its a bar located on the second floor of this remodeled factory, overlooking the brewery operation with a huge glass wall. Both times i have been there the atmosphere as been busy and lively. You can sample a flight of their 5-6 beers on tap, fill growlers, go on a tour, or check out the small brewery store. Saw others who had brought it their own food and seemed to be having a good time. They have food trucks come in on saturday and on one of the days i was there there was a lobster roll truck in the parking lot, great idea, however i didnt try it. This place is pretty cool. I would love to grab a bunch of friends, some cheese and crackers and spend an afternoon in the tasting room.

What a cool spot! I love what they've done with what they had. You will feel as if you stepped back in time in an old factory. Usually a food truck outside, easy to get to and get out. I like their beers but I think more focus could be put into their stuff before contracting out their enormous capacity. When I go back I'd like to drink a few as I look at the before photos of the facility. They have done a lot for that neighborhood by rehabbing an old historic factory.

Dropped by the facility on 11/7 to taste some beers. I was very impressed with the physical space. They have a state of the art brewery with beautiful equipment, incredible for such a new brewery.
The tasting room is nice, it's got lots of pretty wood and that great, wort smell. The bartenders were friendly (one was an apprentice brewer). They knew their stuff. I tried most of the beers, Route of All Evil was the best, the rest were pretty mediocre. They do a ton of contract brewing at the facility too.
Overall, I had an awesome experience. The brewery doesn't have the vibe of most, small microbreweries, it has a slightly more corporate feel which means a more polished appearance and slightly less character.

Just a short distance from I-95 in Stratford, CT is the Two Roads Brewing Company. The renovated factory is hard to miss with its gigantic grain vessels located outside the building (specialty grains are stored inside). The pane glass windows crisscross over a scene of fermenting, wort boiling, kegging, and bottling equipment. This place is big.
Walk across the newly paved and striped parking lot towards the heavy wooden doors, go up the stairs and down the hall towards the clamor, and you will arrive in the Tasting Room which sits high above the brewery and is beautifully framed with floor to ceiling glass windows for your viewing pleasure. With the Tasting Room overlooking the brewery, you have an immediate need to drink beer.
The Two Roads flight consisted of five samples and cost $10. Custom etched sampling glasses generated numerous compliments from fellow patrons.
"Drink this one last." The taste-master recommended, pointing to the Road 2 Ruin Double IPA.
Here was the line up:
Honeyspot Road White IPA
Road 2 Ruin Double IPA
Worker's Comp Saison
Ol' Factory Pils
The gentleman next to me indicated he drinks his flights straight. One by one, no mingling of flavors. I followed suit.
White IPA, Pils, Holiday Ale, Saison, Double IPA
All were remarkably good representations of their respective styles, served a little too cold (for me) and one was slightly over carbonated, but they will work that out. They’ve only been open about two weeks, with very small batches available.
Two Roads is already brimming with success… it's 4pm on a Thursday and there is not a seat available at the approximate 30+ seat oval tasting bar. Small tables are scattered throughout, and as I round my third sample, those are filling up, too. Good for you, Two Roads. I'll be back. Plenty of room, lots of seating, and a splendid view.
"Holiday" growlers are flying out the door. I can see why, delicious.
If you are enroute and passing through Connecticut on I-95, it's worth the small detour.

The brewery is located in the old Baird building in Stratford, CT. The brown brick building had been sitting empty for years and was in need of a new tenant. Two Roads moved in and created a great atmosphere that preserves the old legacy of the areas rich industrial contributions to America. Basically, Two Roads is a great local micro- brewery with many different and creative offerings. Nice to see a local beer brewery that's serious about growing their brand while helping out the local economy. Highly recommended.

Brewery is right behind a plexiglass window. Bar is a wrap around bar with several tap locations. Bartenders were knowledgeable and helpful in choosing the beers to sample. Price was reasonable. Seems like it would be a fun place to be around happy hour (I was there at 3pm, opening)

This place is a gem. By far the most beautiful brewery in the state. Huge space with an amazing history behind it and the tasting room is just amazing. The bar is made from the original floor that was a part of this 100 year old factory. More space than you even need in a tasting room. Tours are fun and done be a friendly and knowledgeable staff. Always something fun going on here and on the weekends they always have great local food trucks. Their beers are pretty solid with some awesome limited releases so far. I see nothing but great things coming from this brewery. I frequent the place quite often since it is only a half hour away from me. I see Two Roads being around for quite a long time and I'm proud to say they are from CT.

Local gem!! Very exciting to have a brewery like this in CT. We deserve it. You must
visit this brewery if your passing the CT. Brewery tours are usually given by a brew
master, which is absolutely amazing.
Two Roads recently had an awesome release of Igor's Dream, which is a limited release of their IRS. I was honored to be the the 1st in line, and obtained bottles 1-3. I hope to be 1st in line next for the same release.

It had some good beers, not crazy about atmosphere. I did like the Igor Sikorsky beer. It was an old machine shop that most of people in stratford worked at back in the day. They kept original flooring and office areas, which was cool.. No food trucks on the saturday when were there, but you can order in with delivery from local restaurants.
