Buzzards Bay Brewing: Farming is Flavor
We approach each beer as a farmer does his crop; we look for the uniqueness of the ingredients, especially our grains/malts (which are the heart and soul of beer). As brewers that specialize in using only American grown malt, yeast and hops (including our own farm’s wheat), our flavors and styles are truly local & unique.
Current releases are:
