Thimble Island Brewery Tour & Tasting

  • Jan 18, 2014 · 4:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

I stumbled across an offer on Living Social that I think could be a lot of fun! $10 for a tour of Thimble Island Brewery in Branford, CT, which includes a tasting and a pint glass. Too good to be true, you say? What if I told you that the $10 covers the cost of admission and tastings and pint glasses for FOUR people? Even better!

Let's meet at the brewery on Saturday, January 18 for a 4:00 pm tour and tasting. Then when we're done, anyone who is interested in still hanging out can stick around and hit up a nearby restaurant or bar together.

I already purchased one of the deals for $10. Since it is for four people, let's see how many people RSVP and whether or not we will need a couple more. I'm not sure how long the deal will last, though, so we should probably stay on top of it. If you'd like to view it yourself, you can see the deal here: Brewery Tour and Tasting Deal

I've never been, but Thimble Island Brewery has really great ratings and reviews, and they are known for their stouts. I'm looking forward to checking it out! If you're not interested in the brewery tour but would like to meet us for dinner or drinks after, leave a message below so we can keep you in the loop.

(The deal can be used any Saturday until January 30 - if a different Saturday works better for everyone, that's fine by me!)

    Is anyone still planning on catching a ride with me?

    January 18, 2014

  • Samantha

    Just a reminder - if you are joining us for a carpool to the brewery, keep in mind that we will be going directly to Geronimo's in New Haven after the tour. We might not get back to Wallingford until late tonight, so only carpool if you don't need to be back at a certain time! We will leave my place around 3:15 pm.

    January 18, 2014

    • Samantha

      Thanks! I'm not sure who all is carpooling at this point...

    Are all 16 spots filled? If not I may bring Kelly with me - she was interested but I don't think she's signed up on the site yet. Please let me know and then I will check with her, depending on your answer. Thanks!!

    January 6, 2014

    • Samantha

      Hey! We have room for one more, so if Kelly wants to join she is welcome :) just add a +1 to your RSVP.

      January 15, 2014

    • Julie

      Thanks but she had other plans or the day - but she will be with us at Geronimo's that night.

      January 17, 2014

  • Samantha

    Again - if you aren't going to be able to make it, PLEASE change your RSVP. There is a wait list and it wouldn't be fair to leave them out :)

    January 17, 2014

  • Brian

    Anyone want to carpool to this and Geronimo from the Wallingford area?

    January 16, 2014

    • Salma B.

      I'm looking for carpool Samantha may you send me your address please? Thank you :)

      January 17, 2014

    • Samantha

      Sure! If anyone else needs my address, let me know.

      January 17, 2014

  • Salma B.

    Is there any carpool from New Haven?

    January 15, 2014

  • Aziz K

    Is there any place for me

    January 15, 2014

    • Samantha

      Hi Aziz! Unfortunately we only have room for 16 for the tour, but I'm calling the people at Geronimo to see if we can get more room for the dinner. So hopefully you can join us there :)

      January 15, 2014

    • Aziz K

      Sounds good
      I'll be there

      January 15, 2014

  • Matt

    So I actually just realized that I won't be able to make it to the brewery in time but I'll make it for the dinner afterwards.

    January 14, 2014

    • Samantha

      We'll miss you! But Geronimo's should be fun :)

      January 14, 2014

  • Samantha

    Hi all! Please note that there is a waiting list, so if you aren't going to make it you should change your RSVP soon. Let's try not to have a bunch of cancellations at the last minute - it wouldn't be fair to the people who are waiting :)

    January 8, 2014

  • Samantha

    Update: we have all the vouchers we need! Thanks to Brian, James, and Erin for helping out. Please bring $2.50 to reimburse them for your share. Ive called the attendance list at 16 bc ive heard the place is small, so we will likely pack it as is. There are 2 spaces left. If it turns out you cant make it, please update your RSVP as soon as possible so other people can join. Cant wait!!

    November 30, 2013

  • Samantha

    We need one more voucher from living social! Any volunteers? Morgan? Erin? Please use the link above - you will be reimbursed!

    November 29, 2013

    • Erin

      Yeah, I'll buy one. Seems like we just need one more?

      November 30, 2013

    • Samantha

      Yes, that would be great! I'm going to cap this one at 16 bc I've heard the place is pretty small lol

      November 30, 2013

  • Samantha

    We are at 12 now (Ally will be joining) so does one more person want to volunteer to buy the Living Social deal? The link is in the description above - it's $10 and other members will pay you back at the event. It would be very helpful!

    November 27, 2013

    • James

      I'll volunteer - how many deals would you recommend purchasing?

      November 29, 2013

    • Samantha

      Great!! We have two so far, so that covers 8 of us. If you could get one, that'll get us to 12 and then we may need one more later. The link is in the description above. Thanks!!

      November 29, 2013

  • Samantha

    Does anyone know the area, or Branford in general? Any fun restaurants or bars we can hit up after the brewery? All suggestions are welcome :)

    November 27, 2013

    • James

      Hi Samantha and group - I know Branford well (native) - I'd recommend a couple places. One of my new favorites is Elis on the Hill. They tend to get busy early but nice selection of alcohol and food with a fairly large bar. Donovan's Reef is in the center of town, and usually doesn't pick up until dinner. The bar area is right next to dining tables. My parents have recommended La Luna, but I've never been. Chowderpot has a ton of parking and a large bar area and plenty of seating. Going back towards Eli's and on the Branford / East Haven border is Chili's, and their bar is spacious as well. I will update if I think of anything else.

      November 27, 2013

    • Samantha

      Sounds great!! Thanks for all the suggestions :)

      November 27, 2013

  • Carolyn

    I have done this one before, and I just want to warn you the beer is not that great and the place is kinda small. But, still a fun time, especially if you have never done a brewery tour before.

    November 27, 2013

    • Samantha

      Thanks for the tip! They specialize in stouts, which can be pretty intense if that's not your thing. But for the price and everything you get, I figure it's something fun and different to do. I'm in just for the pint glass ;)

      November 27, 2013

  • Samantha

    So we will definitely need at least one more voucher - does someone want to volunteer to get it? We can all give a few bucks to people who buy them when we meet up.

    November 26, 2013

    • Samantha

      Thanks, Brian! I'm excited to check this place out :-D
