Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How did you decide on your location?
A: We have been residents of the town of Belford for more that 50 years. We grew up here, went to school here, some of us got married here and then had kids who now go to the same school that we went to when we were young. This is our home town and we wanted to establish the brewery in the town we know and love. We have many friends that come and see us every week that we have known ever since we were kids.

A: Our expertise is in English, Belgian, and German style beers. A couple of our offerings are our flagship “Lobster Pot”, an English style Nut Brown ale, our “Pro Multis”, a Belgian Style Tripel and our “Dunkel”, a Bavarian Style dark lager.
