Bridgewater: Last Dry Town in Connecticut Is Ready to Drink
Who's going from dry to wet in Connecticut?
Say hallelujah. Connecticut's last dry town is about to get wet for the first time.
In a story posted on the Bridgewater, CT Annual Country Fair's Facebook page, a beer garden will be part of the Bridgewater Country Fair this year, which runs from August 19 through August 21.
The sale of alcoholic beverages in restaurants in Bridgewater was banned in 1935, and remained that way until the law was changed in 2014. Here's what the Bridgewater Country Fair had to say in a Facebook post:
Well it's out :-) This is a positive thing for Bridgewater as it will help drive more sales that help fund our FD and EMS services and equipment which supports multiple towns. And it's a great add for you!
According to newmilfordspectrum.com, while there are currently no restaurants serving alcohol in the town of Bridgewater, one is under construction with an expected opening this Fall.
Hope to see you all at this year's Bridgewater Country Fair. Beers on you!
And for all the beer your little heart desires, don't miss out on the third annual Connecticut on Tap Craft Beer Festival
