Located at 230 Woodmont Road, co-owners Jerry Candido and Chris Willett say they are focused on “serving great-tasting local craft beer to local craft beer drinkers.”

“We’re giving folks in Milford and the surrounding communities a great-tasting, homegrown craft beer option,” said Candido who is a West Haven native and currently resides in Milford.

Milford Point Brewing calls itself a nano-brewery, meaning that it produces beer in small batches – three barrels or smaller, it says “ focusing on quality over quantity.”
