Local Kitchen & Craft Beer Bar, Fairfield

Number of Craft Beers: 32 draught beers and 2 beers on cask. According to Managing Partner Ryan Slavin, all of Local's beer are American craft varieties.

Why It’s Liquid Gold: This place takes its beer seriously. Along with its cask options, the restaurant has a device called a Randall which infuses hops and other flavors into the beer. "Because the volume of beer that we go through, it gives us an advantage to get all the limited release beers as they come out," explained Slavin. "We're also up to date on all the current trends in Connecticut. Right now the trend is IPA's so we will always have an eclectic mix of IPA's from around the country."

Among the popular choices: New England Brewing companies Fuzzy Baby Ducks, Coriolis, G-Bot, Locust Reign. Stubborn Beauties- Fist, Nummy Nummy. Grey Sails Captains Daughter. Lawsons Sips of Sunshine. and Founders KBS. Said Slavin: "The great thing about being in Conneticut is that some of the best beers in the country are right here at home."
