Meet the Owner

David Durant, the founder of Cliffside Brewing, has been a passionate home brewer since 2012. Starting in small batches he brewed in his own basement, Dave grew his hobby, experimenting with different recipes and flavors, always searching for the next best creation.

After years of home brewing for his own enjoyment, David has taken the leap into business ownership with Cliffside Brewing, the first nano brewery in Wallingford, CT. Located in the heart of Wallingford on Center Street, Dave and his team look forward to sharing their passion for small-batch beer brewing in the town that they call home.

Stop by 16B Center Street to taste a Cliffside brew or enjoy a rotating list of “guest” beers. Feel free to bring your own food, or peruse our list of menus from local businesses that can deliver right to the brewery. We have games, music, and a welcoming staff that is looking forward to serving you!


Children – We welcome children at the brewery, as long as they are accompanied by a parent or legal guardian. The brewery has board games and free popcorn to keep the whole family happy!

Dogs – Although we love dogs here at Cliffside, health codes unfortunately prevent us from allowing pets into the brewery. Service animals are welcome.

Food – Feeling snacky? We have free popcorn and $1 bags of chips available for our patrons. You are also welcome to bring your own food or order delivery – we even have menus of local restaurants that will deliver right to the brewery.
