Since 1995 the Barrington Brewery has been serving our own Barn Brewed Beer and food made from scratch. We were the first brewery on the east coast to install a solar panel system that supplies solar-heated hot water for brewing and restaurant use.
We have always used local ingredients whenever they are available: seasonal produce from Taft Farms, Equinox Farm, and Howden Farm, and apples from Windy Hill Farm. We offer grass fed burgers and steaks from Northeast Family Farms and free range chicken from New York state. Our sausages are made by the Alpine Pork Store in Catskill, NY and Nodine’s Smokehouse in Goshen, CT. Our beer flavors many of our made from scratch dishes, including our Cheddar Ale Soup, chilis, barbecue sauce, salad dressings and famous Chocolate Stout Cake as well as our Beer-Steamed Sausage and Steak & Stout Sandwiches.
All of our desserts are handmade by our pastry chef Odil: there are always Chocolate Stout Cakes, Chocolate Caramel Tarts, and Brownie Sundaes. Even the hot fudge and caramel sauces are homemade! The fruit pies and crisps vary according to the seasons and Odil is always coming up with new cheesecake varieties.
We have been positively reviewed by The New York Times, The Boston Globe and Capital News 9. We are recommended by ZAGAT, Frommer’s travel guide, and AAA and were included in Bon Appetit’s 50th Anniversary issue 2006 and their Best Neighborhood Restaurants issue.
