Bar
“Located in an 1883 building in downtown Norwich that was once a saloon, These Guys Brewing Company is ready to start brewing their own beer, once they get all the permits. They did a beautiful job renovating the old building, keeping as much as they could, such as antique tin panels on the walls and ceiling. Industrial style lights hang from the ceiling, creating a wonderful cozy atmosphere.”
