About

Wachusett Brewery founders Ned, Kevin and Peter developed a significant appreciation for beer while attending Worcester Polytechnic Institute. Adventures in biking, canoeing and hiking that led the trio to the Northern New England states allowed them to visit some of the first operating craft breweries. Armed with a “we can do this” attitude the three cast off from their careers in engineering and biology to found the Wachusett Brewing Co. in 1993. Wachusett Country Pale Ale was introduced to the beer fans of Massachusetts the next year after lots of experimenting to get the formula just right. When Wachusett opened, the three designed and built most of the equipment; did the brewing and filling, selling and delivering, and everything else that a small startup brewery needed.

Along the way the founders were joined by some of the most passionate and capable co-workers in the brewing industry. Wachusett Ales continue to be hand crafted with the finest ingredients available, bottled, canned and kegged in our Westminster facility. Wachusett Brewing Company has never strayed from the founder’s plan to brew and sell the freshest, highest quality beers possible.
