Hitchcock Brewing Company is a family owned & operated 10bbl craft brewery. Named after Glacial Lake Hichcock. Hitchcock Brewing Company opened in Whately in May 2016 and in September 2019, the brewery moved to its current location in Bernardston. The new venue offers a taproom, live music & great craft beers.
In our new location, we are continuing our business in a beautiful but different country setting. We are expanding from a small tasting room in Whately where the air was filled with the smells of farms and fields and the sounds of birds and tractors, to a large taproom in Bernardston where the smell of freshly brewed beer wafts over the 2 large bars and the sound of live music fills the room.
