Floods Of Suds! New Pittsfield Brewery Officially Opens This Thursday
Yes, Berkshire County beer lovers, the rumors are true! A new brewery will be opening its doors this Thursday in Downtown Pittsfield. And...HALLELUJAH!! If you're a fan of craft beer or beer in general, you have reason to celebrate.
Welcome to the Beautiful Berkshires...
Hot Plate Brewing Co.! Co-founded by a pair of transplanted New Yorkers, Sarah Real and Mike Dell’Aquila:
Those two sure look happy, don't they? Well of course they are! They own a BREWERY. I'd be happy, too, although I have no doubt that there's a lot of hard work involved:
Real and Dell'Aquila both felt that there was not enough variety in the Berkshires to serve the wants and needs of the craft beer connoisseur. So, in order to fill that void, they decided to utilize their marketing backgrounds and start up a microbrewery while at the same time trying to revitalize Downtown Pittsfield.
Hot Plate Brewing Co located on the ground floor at 1 School Street will finally be opening for business this Thursday, February 2nd at 4 p.m. According to their Facebook page, it will be a soft opening so:
We’ll only have six beers on tap, with more to follow soon. In addition to our beers, we will also have hard seltzers, cider, NA beer, and other soft drinks. We will also be adding a wine program soon.
They will also be serving some light snacks and I'm certain the menu will also be expanding at some point as well. And more good news! Their taproom is wheelchair accessible. Mmmmmm. Craft Beer.
For more information about Hot Plate Brewing Co(including how they came up with the name of the business) visit their website here. We'll leave the final words to co-owners Real and Dell'Aquila. Once again, from their Facebook page:
We can hardly believe the day is almost here, and we DEFINITELY can’t wait to welcome you all into our taproom!
Well said. Here's wishing Hot Plate Brewing Co. a very promising beginning and nothing but success in the future!
