A Better World Through Beer

Alvarium Beer Company is comprised of three amazingly hard-working and talented individuals who want nothing more than to melt your face with some killer craft beer: Brian Bugnacki (Sales/Taproom Manager/King of Details), Chris DeGasero (Head Brewer/PT Hunk/FT Chunk) and Mike Larson (Operations/Mechanical Engineer/All-Around Brewery MacGyver).

Nestled in the industrial center of New Britain, Conn., ABC was founded on the principal of revitalizing a historical city with the mighty power of some kick-ass beer. Our brewery is not focused on mass production. Instead, we want to create an ultra-communal taproom where people of all types can unite under the flag of "righteous craft beer." Drink up, baby!

Built With Our Bare Hands

(and lots of power tools)

The city of "Hard Hittin'" New Britain is known as the "Hardware City" for good reason; the tools made here by companies such as Stanley have been used to construct much of America for the past century.

This city knows how to build, and so do we, because the everything you see in the taproom was built with our bare hands...and a heavy helping of local Stanley power tools.

Our spacious and mega-comfy taproom is the result of months of careful planning and blueprinting, a lot of beer, incredibly long hours, mmm...more beer and a motha'-load of labor-intensive work and attention to detail. Also, cheese fries and loud punk music.

How cool can a taproom possibly be? Come on down and sit at our "10-Ton Bar," painstakingly built with solid steel I-Beams and reclaimed red oak. The bar top itself was built by famed City Steam Brewmaster, Ron Page, who was coaxed with much crying and pleading. Some say that when the project was complete, the manly clap of the ensuing forearm shake shook Zeus himself from his throne.

What else? Well, we also have local kielbasa, food trucks, custom honeycomb lighting, hand-crafted wooden tables (and an American flag to match), a bad-ass sound system, digital draft menu, 12-ft shuffleboard table, tabletop Foosball, games and an outdoor patio!

We truly believe our taproom is one of the best in Connecticut; in part because it's a product of not just our hard work, but the support of those who believed in us.

Our legendary taproom is located at 365 John Downey Drive in New Britain, CT. Stop by, say hi, and grab a beer!
