The Northampton Brewery in Northampton, Massachusetts opened its doors in 1987, making them one of if not the first microbrewery in New England.  Now over 20 years later they are celebrating their Grand Re-Opening.  After 20 years of wear and tear it was time to give the Northampton Brewery a face lift.  In the video owner, Janet Egelston, explains that they choose to use environmentally friendly materials to complete the renovations.

Not only did the Northampton Brewery get a little work done they also recently went and got themselves a new Head Brewer, Donald Pacher.  He has been the Head Brewer at Northampton Brewery for just a little over 1 year.  He has brought new life to the beers there.  We had the privilege to sample the two beers brewed just for the Grand Re-Opening … Beyond Mean Green and Hopzilla.  In the video, beer writer George Lenker (a.k.a The Beer Nut) gives us his take on the Hopzilla.

This was one happening party!   We enjoyed good food, creative beer, and  live music by The Primate Fiasco a local Dixieland Band.  We look forward to stopping back and tasting some more of Donald’s creations.  If we don’t catch you at the Northampton Brewery we hope to see you next time right here on HerefortheBeer.
