Craft Breweries

Hop into a Massachusetts local brewery for a taste!

Explore the Bay State by sampling the finely crafted ales and lagers from breweries and brew pubs, extending from Cape Cod and the Islands to the Berkshires. With over 130 breweries to visit, there is plenty of award-winning beer right around the corner.

Many of these world-class breweries feature ingredients from Massachusetts such as locally grown and malted grains, fresh hops, and indigenous yeast strains. Valley Malt, the region's first micromaltster in Hadley, works with area farmers who supply organic grains. Hops grown at Four Star Farm in Northfield and Clover Hill Farm in Hardwick are also used in many local brews. Specialty ingredients from Bay State growers include apples, blueberries, herbs, honey, maple syrup, pumpkin and even cranberries, peaches and oysters! You may also visit the MA Brewers Guild.
