Devil’s Purse Brewing – South Dennis, MA
120 Great Western Road, Unit 1
South Dennis, MA
Friends and avid home brewers Matt Belson and Mike Segerson started having occasional brewing sessions, which then became weekly get-togethers to brew beer, bottle, and keg, and just as importantly, to drink and talk about craft beer. From these late-night brew sessions came the idea for Devil’s Purse Brewing Company and the desire to open a craft brewery on Cape Cod.
They are dedicated to the pursuit of making exceptional handcrafted beers using only the finest ingredients.

Jack’s Abby is loyal to lager, brewing the finest craft lagers using the highest quality ingredients.
Widowmaker Brewing – Braintree, MA
200 Wood Road
Founders of Widowmaker Brewing, Ryan Lavery and Colin Foley, are longtime homebrewers who turned professional. They chose the name Widowmaker for the long hours spent honing recipes in their basements, at the expense of family time. Each of them have been making little tweaks to around a dozen recipes for beers, ranging from a hoppy session blond to coffee stout. Widowmaker Brewing is a partnership of longtime friends and beer enthusiasts. “Our goal is simple: make great beer to share with those wish to share it with us.”
Mighty Squirrel – Waltham, MA
411 Waverley Oaks Road (coming soon)
We brew our beers with the highest quality malted barley, which is the primary source of the beer’s color and contributes significantly to its flavor and mouthfeel. Cofounders Henry Manice and Naveen Pawar launched the company back in 2015 with a distinct specialty: protein-packed beers that appealed to active consumers. As time has gone on and Mighty Squirrel has evolved, they have moved away from protein beers in favor of more traditional styles, including wheat ales and IPAs. “Bundled in each serving of Mighty Squirrel beer, you will find a few of our favorite things: friendship, sports, entrepreneurship, innovation, and fun.”

Night Shift Brewing – Everett, MA
87 Santilli Hwy
Night Shift Brewing was founded in 2012 by a trio of friends with a shared passion for homebrewing. Through culinary inspiration and determined innovation, we aim to create memorable craft beers that offer a wide array of unique, complex flavors. They began homebrewing in a Somerville, MA kitchen in 2007, starting with a 5-gallon “boil kettle”, a Gatorade cooler “mash tun,” and some basic starter recipes. Over time, we refined our process, enhanced our recipes, upgraded our equipment, and were soon homebrewing well past midnight 2-3 times per week. We called ourselves “Night Shift Brewing” – desk workers by day, homebrewers by night.

Bantam Cider – Somerville, MA
40 Merriam Street
Bantam Cider was born from a proud, family tradition of winemaking and a desire to be part of a creative process rooted in the local community. We don’t believe
Cider must fit neatly into one standard style. Instead, we want to push the creative process and elevate cider as the versatile, complex, and interesting choice it deserves to be. We are committed to making creative and distinctive crafted cider using fresh pressed apples and high-quality, all-natural ingredients.
Down the Road Brewing Company – Everett, MA
199 Ashland Street
In days long past, both brewers and bards were largely illiterate, so recipes and stories were rarely committed to paper. Instead, they were handed down from master to apprentice, generation to generation, and with each telling and retelling, the new blood would alter things slightly – adding a new ingredient here or there to the brew or the tale. Down The Road Beer Co. draws inspiration from the grand narrative of both brewing and storytelling. Our beers are rooted in tradition, yet inspired by change. We know your tastes are always evolving, and so are ours. Our beers are familiar, yet they’re peppered with the unique, exciting and curious, so there’s always something new to experience “Down The Road.”
Idle Hands – Malden, MA
89 Commercial Street
Founder, Christopher Tkach, found a good use of his “idle hands” as soon as he turned 21 and received his first beer-making kit as a present from his uncle. From that day forward, he became not only a fan of beer, but a student of the craft of beer making. He founded Idle Hands Craft Ales in 2011 with a local focus and penchant for brewing a wide array of styles from classic German style lagers and Belgian inspired ales to more popular New England IPAs. When they brew a beer, they brew it with uncompromising integrity and with a desire to make the best example of that style possible.
