The brewery started out in April 2004, brewing at the old Hyport Brewing Company in Hyannis. In January 2006, the brewery moved to their current location on Phinney’s Lane. The brewery continued to expand over the years, expanding retail, office, production, and packaging space, as well as adding a tasting room.
