Off Route 4 in hilly Farmington’s busy rural business district, green-roofed tan-sided THE GRANARY BREWPUB & RESTAURANT had a side deck entrance to central bar, quaint wood tables to right (near billiards tables), and far left dining area (visited October ’05 when Chicago White Sox won World Series). Pasta, pizza, lobster, and carnivore meats crowd menu as authentic Blues music played in background for packed dinner crowd.

Downed sweet wheat-honeyed popcorn-dried Dooryard Pilsner, peat-malted pumpkin-soured apple-pear-zipped Oktoberfest Lager, Marashino cherry-dried chocolate cake-like Laughing Loon Lager, fizzy sharp-hopped chocolate-buttered GPA 5.2 Pale Ale, mildly orange-spiced quince-tinged White Fox IPA, and citric-splashed macadamia-pecan-dashed peat-soaked tea-bashed Nut Brown Ale.

Though The Granary still serves awesome local beers, it’s brewery closed down by 2007.
