Historical Mystic CT

Mystic CT is a village comprised of two towns, Groton and Stonington, that share the same zip code but is separated by a drawbridge, known as the Mystic River Bascule Bridge, along the Mystic River. The first settlers settled here in 1654. Although the Stonington side was originally called “Southerton” which was named by the Peqout Indians and translated to the town east of the river. In 1665 General Session voted to change the name “Southerton” to Mistick which is known as Olde Mystick today.

The War of 1812 was had on these lands. Afterwards the area continued to grow prompting the installation of the first bridge in 1819. The drawbridge was built in 1835. In 1890 the village of Mystic became known as Old Mystic.  At this time, without actually merging, they gave up their independent names and became known as Mystic.

These changes were at by the requests of the US Post Office system, which has ever since considered the villages on the two sides of the river, belonging to two different townships, as a single entity for Post Office purposes with the ZIP code 06355. For more information about the village of Mystic CT and its history, visit the Mystic River Historical Society.

Milo the Owl is pint sized, just like our Small Batch cans (a variety of styles available online for pick up from 3-7 PM or by appointment today, delivery information coming soon). One of our favorite things to do is hike the trails at the dpnaturectr and visit their birds of prey. We’ve made mushroom beer for their amazing mushroom festival and participated in educational (and fun!) events like Owls and Ales. This is another non-profit that contributes to our community through educational programming, animal rehabilitation and the amazing Giving Garden at Coogan Farm. They have memberships and are accepting donations to help them through their closure. (Their trails are still open!) #getnaturecentered #denisonpequotseposnaturecenter #cooganfarm #givinggarden #supportlocal #nonprofits #naturecenter #brewery #beer #nanobrewery #craftbeer #ctbeer #beerstagram #brew #mystic #mysticct #downtownmysticct #ct #connecticut #dpnc ...

GEEK ALERT! This is my first experiment with night mode on my new iPhone 11 Pro Max. It was taken in near total darkness when almost none of the details seen in the photograph were visible with the naked eye. Night mode uses either the wide or telephoto lenses which support optical image stabilization and takes a series of photos over 2-5 or more seconds (3 seconds in this case) at different exposures and then uses the AI capabilities of the processor to merge them pixel by pixel into a single image like this. The whole process takes less than a second from the time the image capture completes and is totally automatic. I was absolutely blown away when I saw this image and I absolutely can’t wait to try it it in other situations! And to be clear, there was NO post processing done on this image. Computational photography is unquestionably the future! Oh, and just to add to the cool factor, the two masted ship that’s at the left edge of the image is the Mayflower II, a reproduction of the original Mayflower that’s owned by Plimouth Plantation, that is docked at Mystic Seaport undergoing the final stages of a three year restoration.

This is Betsy Mongrel. While all the dogs in CT are rejoicing because their owners are home, Betsy is sad. She is missing all her coworkers and the guests that visit our shop every day and lavish her with attention. Please send her some hugs, and be sure to come visit her when this is over!
