Highlighting Great Beer and Good Cheer in and around Simsbury

Critical Mass

I get asked a lot why we opened the Red Stone Pub with so much competition in town. My response has always been the same – critical mass. We wanted to be close to other establishments in a walk-able town. I see the other great establishments in town as partners in bringing good things to Simsbury. Think about the success of West Hartford’s LaSalle and Blueback – it works because of critical mass. I hope that as we continue to grow the center of Simsbury that people will think first about eating and drinking here.

Imaging starting out at the Red Stone Pub for a beer and sandwich. Then strolling under the red stone archway to visit Plan B, the Iron Frog, Joe Pizza, Maple Tree, etc. What a great evening you could have! Take it another step further and you can drive a short distance to The Old Well, Millwright’s Tavern, Abigail’s, and many others in town. Obviously I don’t recommend all these places at once – don’t drink and drive – but a few at a time sounds like a lot of fun.

Sierra Nevada Celebration is now on tap. It is drinking well as a fresh-hop ale with a lot of character: copper in color, full bodied, crisp, citrusy, 6.8% abv, and elegantly hoppy.

Stay posted as I will try to offer some ‘pub wisdom’ and insight into great beer and good cheer!
