Founded in 1865, Beertown embodies the innovative, pioneer spirit of its 19th century forefathers. When brewers Rhys Bramblethorpe and Aloysius P. Thompson left New York City, they set out to find land with the purest spring water and most beautiful scenery available upon which to build their new brewery. Though the B&T Brewery is no longer in operation, Beertown remains the ideal location to start a business, raise a family, and follow your dreams. Thank you for visiting, and we hope you’ll stay a while!
