about us

Ever since we first opened our doors on March 30th (2019), the mission of Center Street Brewing Company has and always will be to provide quality craft beer to the local community in a welcoming atmosphere. We are passionate about our work and strive to create the best craft beer experience for all. Our tap list consists of a variety of beers that can be appreciated by anyone from a beer connoisseur to those new to the craft beer world and everyone in between. Our building is surrounded by plenty of parking and we have a great outdoor space perfect for enjoying a cold beer on a summer day. Our taproom has ample seating, games, and televisions all in a clean, warm environment… perfect for events or parties! If you want to enjoy a meal in our tap room, feel free to bring food or have it delivered while enjoying a pint of Blue-Eyed Blonde or Lucky #19. We hope to see you soon, cheers!

 

who we are

Peter Ford: Co-Owner / Brew Master

Pete has been a craft brewer for over thirty years and his experience and passion truly reflect in his beers. It has been his dream to open a brewery and provide quality craft beer to his local community of Wallingford, CT where he has resided for the past thirty years. From home brewing beer in his garage, to the American Brewer’s Guild, to brewing on Wallace Avenue, Pete has been able to turn his hobby into a life-style. When you stop by, expect to be greeted with a smile from Pete and if you want to talk beer, he would love to share his wealth of beer knowledge!
