Cheers to 21 Years!

Willibrew's 21st anniversary

 

Willibrew’s turning 21! We’re finally old enough to drink and we’re celebrating!

Join us from Monday, April 2nd through Saturday, April 7 and help us raise a toast to 21 years as the Willimantic Brewing Company (and 27 as the Main Street Café)!

How are we celebrating?

Look for:

Blast-from-the-past menu items all week!

We’ll be tapping Willibrew beers (including some from our barrel aged cellar) throughout the week and wrapping up when we take over 21 of our lines!!

And we’ll cap it off with a Party in the Pub with RHYTHM STEW on Saturday, April 7th! The fun starts at 9:30!

And it wouldn’t be a Willibrew event if we didn’t #beeritforward! We’ll offer a few ways to raise money for Covenant Soup Kitchen. One is a beer brewed just for the occasion, we’ll have some fun ways to display your artwork behind the bar for a donation, we’ll be donating a percentage of the profit from our daily specials (on Saturday only), AND we’ll be collecting donations on Saturday night.

Keep an eye on our Facebook event for fun giveaways!
