About Drop-In Brewing Company

The Drop-In Brewing Company has been in business since the summer of 2012. Opening their own brewery was a dream for Steve Parkes and Christine Mckeever-Parkes of Salisbury since purchasing the prestigious American Brewers Guild nearly fifteen years ago. Their dream became a reality when they acquired an old plumbing supply building on Route 7 South in Middlebury, Vermont. With over 30 years of commercial brewing experience, beginning with his own degree in brewing science at Scotland’s Heriot-Watt University, Steve will continue to brew a variety of artisan beers, that will continue to advance the craft brewing movement here in Vermont, and in America.

The Drop-In Brewing facility contains a brand new Newlands 15bbl brewing system, a tasting room complete with growlers and apparel, and is the permanent home of theAmerican Brewers Guild – the nation’s premier brewing school for the craft brewing industry, which specializes in intensive brewing science and engineering courses for professional brewers. The ABG has been training and educating brewers from all corners of the globe for over 18 years.
