My wife and a few of my friends headed up to the Veracious Brewing Company over the weekend to celebrate my and my buddy Colin’s birthdays. We’re both beer geeks, but I dare say that Colin has a few levels on me in this specific genre of geekdom. Nevertheless, we all had Hell of a good time.

Veracious is a great little place. Located in Monroe, Connecticut, it’s the kind of small, truly artisanal craft brewery that you think you’re going to find every time you head out for a craft brew tour. But where a lot of craft breweries have only a few kinds of beers and maybe one or two signature mainstays, Veracious carries more than a dozen. They do everything, often with multiple variations on a theme. In an increasingly crowded marketplace, this is a unique and enjoyable approach.
As I told my buddy Colin, Veracious doesn’t just make beer. At a certain level, they make art.
