A Better World Through Beer

Nestled in the industrial center of New Britain, Conn., Alvarium Beer Company 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

New Britain 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.

Come on down and sit at our "10-Ton Bar," painstakingly built with solid steel I-Beams and reclaimed red oak, 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!

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