About Berkshire Brewing Company

For the past 25 years we’ve kept it simple: brewing our ales and lagers fresh in small batches. We’ve kept it real: all of our beers are unfiltered, unpasteurized, and contain no chemical additives or preservatives. And we’ve kept it creative: producing a broad range of year-round and seasonal ales and lagers, and frequent brewer’s specials. Just good beer.

Our Philosophy - 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.

Environmental Practices

Berkshire recognizes that every process here at the brewery has an impact on the environment. Whether it's our use of recycled and/or recyclable materials in packaging, our use of compostable cups at events or delivery of our spent grain to local farms, we go above and beyond in our commitment to environmentally sustainable practices.

Our History - 25 Years of Birkshire

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-five 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.
