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.

Today is the day! We’re putting on the finishing touches this morning, and plan to open the patio this evening from 4-8pm! Outdoors: wait to be seated, masks are required unless eating or drinking, please observe social distancing rules, only pints will be served (in plastic cups), please place your trash in the bin, and an executive order pretzel ($1) will be added to each party’s bill to fit the food requirement. Indoors the rules from last weekend remain in effect. Please have patience with us as we adjust to our new system. #brewery #beer #nanobrewery #craftbeer #ctbeer #beerstagram #brew #mystic #mysticct #downtownmysticct #ct #connecticut ...

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 ...

Some more Adirondack chairs with a view. I may be prejudiced, but I think Mystic is one of the prettiest places in the world.⁠

You can see the Mystic Seaport across the river here. The ship you can see is the Mayflower.⁠

Happy Father’s Day from all of us at Barley Head! Here’s Drew measuring the patio which will open this coming week... but GREAT NEWS! We did a trial run of our half capacity interior space yesterday, and we’re happy to announce that Barley Head will be open inside today from 1 to 6 PM. The following policies are in place: each party will have an “executive order pretzel” added to their order for $1 to fulfill the food requirement, table service is required, 21+ only inside, masks must be worn when not actively eating and drinking, and social distancing rules are in place. There is extremely limited seating, and we ask that you wait at the door to be seated/pick up your online order. Please be patient with us as we adjust to this new (and ever evolving) situation. #brewery #beer #nanobrewery #craftbeer #ctbeer #beerstagram #brew #mystic #mysticct #downtownmysticct #ct #connecticut ...
