Thomas Hooker Brewery

16 Tobey Rd, Bloomfield, CT

Thomas Hooker Brewing Company, headquartered in Bloomfield, is Connecticut’s local brewery with a national reputation. One taste and you’ll recognize why small batch local brewing with quality ingredients produces a superior beer.
Built on the premise that small manufacturers creating quality products are still of backbone of this country, Thomas Hooker Brewery offers unique beers that are highly respected and recognized for consistency and quality. With numerous accolades and awards, Thomas Hooker Brewing is Connecticut’s small brewer with a huge reputation.

This is for sure one of the better breweries we visited. It has two tap-rooms, and both look very nice. They also have a kitchen, offering pizzas, salads, as well as chicken wings, nachos, fries and pretzels. Pizza we had was really good. There is also outdoor seating, in the front of the building.
Beer is excellent, wide choice of beers on tap or cans to carry out. Prices are very reasonable, especially considering what some other places charge for a pint.
There is also a shop, in case you want to buy something (glassware, clothing, ...)

Recommended beer: Ode to Blumpy (IPA)

What to drink



Juicy New England style IPA dry hopped with a massive amount of citra and mosaic hops


Blonde Ale


Smooth flavor with a subtle malt sweetness accented with the delicate aroma of Czech hops. This brilliant gold ale is a mellow but flavorful microbrew.



American IPA

Brewed with a blend of three hops. Aromas of orange blossom lead into big juicy flavors of overripe tropical fruits, with a sturdy yet balanced bitterness


Fairway IPA

Session IPA

Tee up and crush this easy drinking IPA! We crafted this brew to be the ultimate companion on the links. The abundance of Citra hops drives this brew all the way to the green. It makes any day on or off the course a hole in one.




Hazy, smooth and packed with notes of banana and clove.


Hop Meadow IPA


A blend of cascade, centennial and simcoe hops give this beer a citrus aroma and piney finish. Balanced but complex, this beer is a refreshing brew.


Ode to Blumpy


Copious amounts of Mosiac and Huell Melon hops make this unfiltered IPA stand out. Light on bitterness, a hint of spice, and heavy on citrusy aromatics give this beer a remarkably unique character, just like its namesake.


Super Duper Double Citra

Double IPA

Double IPA with all Citra hops


Under the Wanaka Tree


NEIPA brewed with big doses of Sabro and Motueka in the whirlpool and dry hop. Impenetrable hazy yellow with a dense creamy head, Under the Wanaka Tree is one of our juiciest creations to date!


Chocolate Truffle Stout


Our sweet stout is made in collaboration with Connecticut's favorite chocolatier, Munson's Chocolate. Copious amounts of oat malt produce a silky, full bodied beer laced with hints of roast and chocolate derived from dark malts. Each sip ends with a mild chocolate bitterness from Munson's proprietary cocoa powder, added generously to the brew. To round out this beer, we add several pounds of cocoa nibs at the end of fermentation to provide a fresh chocolate aroma.


Irish Red

Red Ale

A rich, malty brew that uses red wheat and a variety of crystal malts, giving this beer its ruby red hue. Traditional English hops give this easy drinking brew a flavor that's perfect year round.
