USA Today's Best New Brewery contest is currently underway with two Connecticut breweries in the top 20.

According to an article in, twenty breweries from across the United States are vying for the title of 'Best New Brewery' and two of those 20 are right here in Connecticut. The two breweries are New Park Brewing in West Hartford and Fox Farm Brewery in Salem. Hudson Valley Brewery in Beacon NY also made the cut.
