Breweries with the most highly ranked beers in Connecticut

In a world where just a small number of massive companies dominate the beer market, sipping on a brew created close to home can be all the more satisfying.

Stacker compiled a list of the breweries with the most beers ranked in the top 100 in Connecticut using data from BeerAdvocate. Any ties were broken by the highest-ranking beer. Continue reading to find out which Connecticut breweries have the tastiest offerings.
