Brewing Excellence with a Passion for Flavor

We’re restaurateurs at heart and beer drinkers at liver. This is our stab at bringing our two passions together. A brewery, beer hall, cocktail bar, lounge, arcade, restaurant, and much more.

Located in Manchester, CT. We're bringing our own brews together with the best of Connecticut, and the world, with other libations and street fare to generate the ultimate experience. Our reboot on the Adams Paper Mills, circa 1864, has yielded our great state's newest adult playground.

Emily Sands
Branding & Marketing Director
Read Bio

Growing up in nearby Ellington, CT, a town known for being more farmland than anything else, Emily has often fielded the question "What is there to do in Connecticut?" to which her response has always been, "Eat and drink!"  Emily has spent most of her years patronizing the many unique restaurants that Connecticut has to offer and was absolutely thrilled when the brewery scene took off in her home state.  

After college, Emily continued to be a foodie and explore restaurants, breweries and distilleries alike, but rather than joining the industry, she spent her early career in radio.  For eight years, she sold events and sponsorships for four major Hartford Market radio stations.  

When she heard that a new brewery called Elicit was taking over the old Adam's Mill, she knew she wanted to be a part of the new and innovative venue.  At Elicit, she continued her event career as the Private Events Sales Director, helping guests throw corporate events to birthday parties to everything in between.  

Now, she has moved into a new role as Marketing and Branding Director and is excited to continue to promote all that is "Elicit". A self proclaimed “beer buff”, Emily particularly enjoys Amber Lagers, but will be the first to tell you that she’s never tried a beer she doesn’t like.

Favorite Beer:  Eligible Bachelor for its smooth, malty flavor and easy to drink ABV of only 4.5%.

Favorite thing about Elicit:  Seeing frequent guests bring their family/friends for the first time to Elicit and watching them give a tour and talk about how much they love it here.
