Item Description

Boost your t-shirt collection and your beer palate! Westport's Buzzards Bay is run by the husband and wife team of Daryl and Bill Russell, whose family also owns Westport Rivers Winery up the street. The Russells opened the brewery in 1998, in the expanded footprint of an old barn, and over the years outfits like Pretty Things and Cisco have contract brewed here. Current Buzzards Bay offerings are branded as such, and available in pints on site and in cans and growlers to take home.

There’s a small tap room at Buzzards, and on this crowded Saturday the extra beer line is clutch — but the brewery is made for enjoying outdoors. Patrons bring their own folding chairs and picnic lunches or set up shop at communal tables. Three cornhole sets on the lawn are put to good use. There’s a truck with its tires dug into the crushed seashell driveway slinging gourmet grilled cheese.

T-shirt size large.

More about the brewery:

Buzzards Bay Brewing: Farming is Flavor

We approach each beer as a farmer does his crop; we look for the uniqueness of the ingredients, especially our grains/malts (which are the heart and soul of beer). As brewers that specialize in using only American grown malt, yeast and hops (including our own farm’s wheat), our flavors and styles are truly local & unique.

The Russell’s founded both Buzzards Bay Brewing and Westport Rivers Winery upon this deep regard for local agriculture and education. As of 2012, the Russell Family has permanently preserved 400 acres of working farmland and forest.

The Boston Globe:

Westport’s Buzzards Bay Brewing is prettier than it looks in photos. Which seems impossible because nearly every shot of the place is gorgeous, from the lights twinkling behind a flight of brews on the company’s website to Instagram sunsets that bathe the rolling farmland in twilight. More: https://bit.ly/2y5V2KY
