At the five-acre Talcott Mountain Collective in Simsbury, you can choose your own adventure. Grab a beer at the bar, with your choice of 20 local, regional and international brews. Snack on a giant Bavarian pretzel, or order Spanish tapas and fried chicken sandwiches from a Connecticut food truck. Gather your friends for a game of cornhole or disc golf, or just take in the views of Talcott Mountain and the iconic Heublein Tower.
