Calling all beer lovers: The Witchdoctor Brewing Company intends to have a soft opening this week after receiving a temporary Certificate of Occupancy on Friday, April 21. Construction for the 168 Center Street (factory square) facility began in January and is now wrapping up to give locals a unique bar experience. A grand opening date has not yet been set, but is expected to come soon. Owner Josh Norris can be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Locals can also look forward to the Kilted Kinsmen brewery in the next few months, located in the former Clark Bros. bolt factory on 409 Canal St. Both breweries are located along the linear trail, and town officials think it will draw people downtown. Economic development coordinator Lou Perillo said his office is working with the businesses because they are recreation destinations along Southington’s portion of the trail.
