Fairfield County has become quite the craft beer bar scene, stepping up its suds game and offering residents a host of “hoppy” options. We asked for the best in the county; you gave us your picks. Now, five finalists are competing in our “DVlicious Best Craft Beer Bar in Fairfield County” contest. Each is being profiled this week.

Voting ends 4 p.m. Monday, Oct. 24. The winner will receive a framed DVlicious certificate as well as the pride in knowing it has raised the bar in Fairfield County.
Number of Craft Beers: About five beers on tap, including Guinness (a dry stout made in Dublin, Ireland) and Singlecut Does Anyone Remember Laughter? (IPA made in Astoria, Queens.)
In bottles, of which they have about 50, there is everything from Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout to Lagunitas Aunt Sally Sour (a California ale) to Stone Oaked Arrogant Bastard (an American ale).
In cans, look for Finch’s Beer Hardcore Chimera (a double IPA made in Chicago) to Sixpoint C.R.E.A.M. Coffee Blonde (a cream ale made in Brooklyn). There is always one tap dedicated to beers brewed in Maine.
Why It’s Liquid Gold: To go with your brew: upscale pub food such as pork and kimchi dumplings, sweet potato tostada, crispy eggplant frites, ahi tuna tacos and Farmers Market egg rolls. They have soups, wraps and salads, too.
Plus, there are now four locations throughout the county to enjoy the 'big" pleasures of this Little Pub.
