Our beer is distributed through Hartford Distributors in the following Connecticut counties: Hartford, Tolland, Windham, Middlesex, New London, and Litchfield.  In New Haven and Fairfield counties, Back East is distributed by G&G Beverage Distributors.  In Hampshire, Worcester & Hampden counties in Massachusetts, Back East is distributed by Quality Beverage.  Please contact your local HDI, G&G, or Quality Beverage Rep or email us at info@backeastbrewing.com

Can I bring in my own growler?

Yes! You can bring in your own growler, as long as it is clean. If it is not sufficiently clean, we unfortunately cannot fill it.

We have a variety of draught choices for growlers fills, stop on in and check out the selection!

Do you have food?

We try and have food trucks every day. We also have some amazing locally made chips and salsa, in addition to giant pretzels for sale. Please check out our FOOD TRUCKS section or social media for more food truck information. If you add a food truck inquiring about booking here please CLICK HERE and email Jess.

Do you have anything other than beer?

While we think there is nothing better than one of our beers, we understand that not everyone drinks beer. We have Connecticut-made wine, cider, and soda options for our gluten-intolerant friends and non-beer drinkers.

Do you take reservations?

We do not require reservations for tables. If you have a larger group (15+), please email us and let us know ahead of time.  We will try to accommodate your group the best we can. We also recommend coming closer to opening to be guaranteed a table.  If you are interested in a private event at Back, please click on the Private Events menu above.

Yes! Children accompanied by a parent or guardian are welcome in our tap room.

Do you have live music?

Yes, we have live music scheduled weekly. Please check out our LIVE MUSIC section for an updated list of weekly performers. To inquire about booking your band to play in the Tap Room please email Jess (CLICK HERE).
