Who We Are
Established in 1994 in South Deerfield, MA, Berkshire Brewing Company is New England’s premier regional craft brewery. We keep it simple: brewing our ales and lagers fresh in small batches. We keep it real: all of our beers are unfiltered, unpasteurized, and contain no chemical additives or preservatives. And we keep it creative: producing a broad range of year-round and seasonal ales and lagers, and frequent brewer’s specials. Just good beer.
Good Beer. Good People.
We believe in staying relaxed, down-to-earth, and enjoying an abundance of great beer. There are no secrets here. We share our process, our culture, and of course, the final product – because that’s the way we believe a craft brewery should be.
Berkshire Environmental Practices
Berkshire recognizes that every process here at the brewery has an impact on the environment. Whether it’s our use of recycled materials in packaging, our trailblazing Rewash & Reuse Program, or one of the many other ways we cut down on waste, we go above and beyond in our commitment to environmentally sustainable practices.
Berkshire Brewing Company President & Founder
20 YEARS OF BERKSHIRE
Berkshire Brewing Company was founded in the fall of 1994 in historic South Deerfield, MA. Our founders shared a single purpose: to revive a time-honored tradition of high-quality craft brewing in this part of the region. By word of mouth – and taste buds – Berkshire’s fresh, unfiltered, unpasteurized ales quickly became a success with beer drinkers throughout Western Massachusetts and beyond.
In the twenty years we’ve been in the business, plenty has changed. Berkshire has grown from a small, distinguished microbrewery brewing seven barrels at a time to New England’s premier regional craft brewery, distributing a broad range of year-round and seasonal ales and lagers to locations across New England.
We’ve gotten this far by keeping a focus on fresh brewing, craftsmanship, and most importantly, people. As Berkshire Brewing Company continues to grow, we stay true to our original craft spirit.
Tours of Berkshire Brewing Company’s brewery are offered on Saturday afternoons at 1:00 pm. Tours are free, and no reservations are needed. We are required to check IDs for beer tasting. T-shirts, glasses, hats, and other Berkshire products are available for purchase after the tour. Cash only please.
Unfortunately, we are unable to sell beer directly to the public, but there are many local retailers in the area where you may purchase our products.
