Not too long ago I experienced my first beer with Front Porch Brewing and really enjoyed it! I had Neil's Samoa Donut Stout. This is categorized as a pastry stout and I really like those but have to be in the right mood for one. Preferably during the colder months out of the year. Apparently there are a few variations with the donut stout but as the name implies I got the Samoa version. What makes up in the flavor and texture profile is a sweet, smooth, chocolate, creamy and rich beer that Steve and I shared. A whole pint of this might have been too much for me but Steve and I shared it which made it proportioned quite well. A wonderful start with this brewery and would love to try the other donut versions of this stout! I saw a French Toast one that also caught my eye!

Bought a 4 pack of Reverse Mermaid. It was a complete drainpour. Tasted like windex. If you don't make good beer, then don't can it and distribute it. I'll not be trying ANY of your beers again.

Haven't been here for 4 years but this place is still here and still has great beer. The beer art is quirky and awesome. Like my mermaid friend here. Definitely worth a stop if you are in the neighborhood!

enjoyed the extremely relaxed vibe and the beers were pretty good. I settled on the Coffee chocolate imperial stout. My h got two flights which covered all of their current offerings. It was nice to taste them all. I would come again.

Bartender was friendly and easy to talk with. Plenty of board games, old school video games, pinball machines, and shuffle board. We’ll be back!

I thought the vibes were cool and the beertender was nice, but the day we went it def lacked variety in the beer department. I had one really gross sour that I couldn't finish. No IPAs on draft. The beers we did get were room temperature at best. It wasn't even a hot day. I think that's always the worst, when your first sip of beer and it's not even cold. I do appreciate the games they have, they're fun. And I've had their beers not at the brewery before and they're pretty good.

Nice brewery in Wallingford ! They do not only have ipas on tap so it's an instant win . We had their stouts and sour and both were very good . Also the prices seemed to be a little lower here than most breweries ! Will be back when we are in Connecticut

Front Porch Brewing Company is a craft brewery that opened in Wallingford, Connecticut in November 2017. It was founded by business partners James Flynn, Drew Peccerillo, Tiffany Ulrich and Ryan Voytek. Flynn began home brewing about five years earlier in a friend's backyard and eventually moved to brewing on his front porch (hence the name of the brewery). After he started getting better at home brewing, he decided to turn his hobby into a business. The small brewery brews a variety of different styles but mainly brews different kinds of IPAs and Sours. The small brewery and taproom has a one-barrel system and can only brew a small amount of beer at a time. They occasionally enlist the help of brewery collectives such as The Beeracks in East Haven or Twelve Percent Beer Project in North Haven in order to produce and distribute beer on a much larger scale. I've been visiting Front Porch Brewing since not long after they first opened. On my first visit, I ordered a flight which consisted of a Belgian Dubbel, a Session IPA, a Sour IPA, and a Pale Ale. The latter (named "Devil Children") was my favorite and the ABV appropriately clocked in at 6.66%. My most recent visit was this weekend to pick up some new cans that they released. Both new beers were brewed on a larger scale at Twelve Percent Beer Project and were available at both Twelve Percent and Front Porch's taproom. The first offering was a Double IPA called "Leaving So Soon?" It's aggressively brewed with Citra, Strata, Galaxy, and El Dorado hops. It had some lovely tropical notes from all of the different hops. It clocks in at 8% ABV and each can features alternating artwork that sort of resembles tarot cards. The second offering is an Imperial Pastry Stout called "Neil's French Toast Donut Stout". It was brewed in collaboration with Neil's Donuts (with locations in Wallingford and Middletown) and made with a generous amount of their French Toast donuts. It clocks in at 10% ABV and has a delicious aroma of donuts. I later stopped at Neil's to get some donuts to dunk into the beer! Delicious!! Well done everyone!


Highly recommend. they have a dog (don't bring people with pet allergies). Great bear great environment
