Who we are

We recently were awarded #1 brewery and taproom in Connecticut by a public vote (288,500 votes) as best brewery and taproom in the State of Connecticut.

Charter Oak Brewing Co. is a 10,000 square-foot facility in Danbury, CT that includes a 20 barrel brewing system as well as a very unique pilot 5 barrel system and an inviting taproom with 10 rotating draft lines. We use only the finest local ingredients and brew in small batches to ensure you are enjoying the freshest beer possible. Our taproom is a place where you can gather with friends and family, and you will be TREATED like family because we just love our fellow beer drinkers and are passionate about what we do. Come visit us, and enjoy a pint of your favorite beer or sample a bunch with our flights! We will even fill a growler to take home with you. Want to learn more about what we do? We love to give tours of our facility so you can see exactly what goes into making that liquid gold you love so much. Hungry? No problem. We often have food trucks dishing out drool-worthy delights, and we also have a 3-inch thick binder with menustfrom local restaurants that can be delivered to your table. Alternatively, we are even cool with you bringing in your own food if that strikes your fancy! We want you to hang out with us for hours, so we have a big screen TV and lots of games like giant Jenga, giant Connect Four, corn hole and much more. Our goal is to make our taproom a destination for you and your favorite people to gather and enjoy each others company. Some people love it so much, they ask to book the space for their own private parties & events….and we are happy to do so. Just ask us! Learn more…

Customer Reviews

"I have been to many breweries over the years. I would rank this as one of the best. I have rarely been as impressed with the fine products I found at Charter Oak. They have a wide variety of styles. I tried all of the current selection and they were all delicious. Every one is a great representation of the style. Each beer is well crafted, well balanced and has a great flavor and depth. The owners are lovely people, very welcoming and helpful. The owner/brewer is very happy to discuss his techniques, the styles and the brewing process. I would HIGHLY recommend a visit here or a purchase of their beer at your local retailer."

"One of the favorite breweries my group has been to. We were greeted with smiles and positive energy, felt very welcomed. Michelle provided our group with samples, snacks and even plenty of beer knowledge. As someone else said, she makes you feel like family. That alone would make us come back but their beer is also excellent! Highly recommend!"

"The beer was great.. food truck they had was tasty.. and the customer service was probably the best I've had in ages. I feel bad for not trying this place out sooner. Michelle was very personable and Scott was equally as nice. Thanks again."
