The Quinnipiac Brewery, also known as Brewery Square, is a complex of brick buildings at 19-23 River Street in the Fair Haven neighborhood of New Haven, Connecticut. Its dominant feature is the six-story Romanesque main brewery building, built in 1882 and given its present facade in 1896. The other major buildings are an office building, also dating to the 1880s, and the bottling plant, built in 1916. The brewery represents the transition of beer production from smaller local breweries to those producing it on a more industrial scale.[2]

The complex was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983.[1]
