Just as more and more people increasingly want to know where their food comes from, we believe that people will also want to know where their beer comes from. Similarly, just as more folks are increasingly concerned about the carbon footprint and the costs associated with transporting their food across the country, we believe folks will soon start thinking the same way about their beer.
To that end, our vision is to create beer that is sourced 100% from local ingredients and enjoyed in the local New England area. Certainly, there are challenges with this vision. After all, the emerging micro-maltsters don’t have the same economies of scale that the bigger mid-western and Canadian maltsters do. In addition, the New England climate is amenable to producing only certain types of hops and fruits, which might mean some limitation in variety.
