Owner/brewer Dave Durant was a small-batch home brewer for a long time. Received some positive brew reviews, then took the hobby professional with the downtown Wallingford tasting room, just 10 minute drive to Quinnipiac University and 20 minutes from downtown New Haven. From Cliffside's location, at the corner of Routes 5 and 150, you can walk to a bunch of restaurants, if you'd prefer to eat there before or after a few pints.
The taproom / nanobrewery opened in the fall of 2017. At the time, they offered guest taps. Not sure if they still do. Guest taps are like cover songs to a brewery.
