When are we opening?

Hand's down, most popular question. Behind closed doors and tattered brown paper, we've been hard at work since October 2017, turning 16 Main into the brewery it's meant to be. Our goal is to beat summer - which technically doesn't start until June 21st! Keep an eye here and on our social media pages to stay up to date on our projected opening!

Will we sell food?

Chester is packed to the brim with fantastic places to eat, many of which are just a stone's throw from our front door. To name a few...there's The Villager Cafe, Simon's Marketplace, Thai Riverside, The Pattaconk, Otto Pizza, River Tavern, and Chester's newest spot, Grano Arso! Given all these great options, we decided to stick with what we know and leave the food to the pros. So, feel free to BYOF...we might offer some light snacks down the road, but we fully encourage you to explore Chester!

Where do I park?

If you've ever been to Chester before, you know that a prime parking spot can sometimes be hard to come by...but fear not, there's plenty of space to go around! We strongly encourage walking, biking, skateboarding, and razor-scootering...but if four wheels are more your speed, check out one of these parking options (all of which are both free and within easy walking distance of the village):

-Maple Street Parking Lot

-Laurel Hill Cemetery Parking 

-Water Street Parking Lot
