History

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.
