Birch Hill Tavern has become a favorite of my wife, family, friends and me. The service is consistently excellent; the restaurant itself is filled with dark wood tables and chairs, making it very comfortable, but not too dark. The menu focuses on comfort foods and quality is consistent. The fish and chips (best I've had in CT) are a stand out item. The pulled pork sliders and corned beef reuben are also quite good.
What makes Birch Hill Tavern great, is the beer selection (bourbons too), and knowledge of it's owners. Elite beers can be hard to come by in Connecticut, but great beers, of all varieties (Founders, Maine, Green Flash, etc), are consistently rotated through. John, one of the owners and frequent bartender, is a pleasure to speak with and always happy to talk beer.

This place can still be considered a "hidden gem" as it's less than a year old and not fully on the radar. The beer selection is great (they get all the limited allocations from Founders, Maine Beer, etc.) and if you ask you may be able to try a few special beers that are kept off the list - they've been know to keep a pretty good stash. Beer dinners are hosted monthly, most recently Stone, Cisco, and Sixpoint. Which leads me to the food, which is what sets this place apart. Top Notch. Absolutely worth checking out.
