"At Dockside, we believe in keeping things exciting – we are more than just a beer bar. We take everything extremely seriously, our house-brewed beer, our cocktails, our food. We assembled the most talented kitchen and front-of-house crew in the state. We also strongly believe that there are things in life that should go hand in hand with all this; our community, our friends and family, and our environment being first and foremost. Fortunately, a fresh brew, a cold cocktail, and hot New Haven pizza all go hand in hand with this.
Located on the banks of the Housatonic River in Milford, CT, Dockside is more than just a craft brewery and waterfront Biergarten. Above all else, it’s a gathering place; a Fun, local haunt that aims to embrace, grow and strengthen our surrounding community simply by bringing people together."
