We both share a passion for craft beer and music. Ken has brewed for over 14 years while working as a red seal electrician from here to Alberta and I (Ashley) have been touring North America as a musician for the last ten. We wanted to create something in our community, a reason to be closer to home and make a living doing what we love together. Opening a craft brewery offers the opportunity for all of that.
Ken’s passion for craft beer started while selling six packs out of the back door of Propeller Brewing in 2003. In 2012, we built the “Brewdio”, a nanobrewery and music studio at our Sturgeon home. It is here where Ken developed his tasty beer recipes and where he turned his 14 year obsession with brewing into a plan to open a craft brewery in Montague. My passion for craft beer came from my travels as a touring musician and was soon intrigued with the idea of bringing a musical component to the project. Here we are many years later, writing our story and excited for you to try our tasty brews.

Our historic building at 567 Main Street has been so many important fixtures in our community. It all started as the first town hall in 1938 to the local fire hall, jail, library and hardware store (Handy Andy’s) to serving our town as The Eastern Graphic newspaper for over 39 years. We are honored to be the newest proprietors of such a touchstone in our town; bringing people together over a pint or two while overlooking the beautiful Montague River.
