New Home, New Bottles, New Brews For Chatham Brewing

Chatham Brewing has moved! And that's not all that's new that's going on for Chatham Brewing! They've moved, they've got new bottles, and they have new brews! Hey, that's co-owner Tom by the new sign in Chatham!

Firstly, they are still in Chatham of course. They are now in the building across from the world famous Crandell movie theater, home of the Chatham Film Fest!

Ans they have their Matthew Vassar Brewer's Cup banner hanging proudly for their 2012 win!

They are also making jellies from their brews. They are fantastic!

And more importantly they are making new , more sophisticated brews, and selling them in bottles! The Bourbon Barrel Brown is Brown Ale aged in Bourbon barrels. Lot's of complexity and!

My personal absolute favorite was the 8 Barrel Reserve. This is a stout aged in Bourbon barrels. This is a reserve of only eight barrels. Fantastic! Big with lots of dark malt flavor and that classic bourbon nose!!!

For those who prefer a more classic trapist stile ale, there's the new Tripel Belgian Style Ale. This has all the yeasty goodness you're looking for!!! Wonderful!

This winter, Chatham Brewing is running a farmer's market. Here's Chatham Brewing partner Jake selling Old Chatham Cheese.

Brewmaster Matt manning the tasting station!

It wasa great visit, and the beers are better than ever...along with someof your old favorites like Blonde and Scotch Ale! Great new stuff going on at Catham Brewing!
