Newburyport Brewing Company has been recognized by State Senator Diana DiZoglio (D-Methuen) as part of the Legislature’s 5th Annual Manufacturing Month Awards, honoring manufacturers across the Commonwealth.

Newburyport Brewing Company is a craft brewery dedicated to brewing high-quality craft beer products for local and regional consumers. Co-founded in 2012 as Massachusetts’ first all-can and keg craft brewery by two local Newburyport entrepreneurs, musicians, and home brewers – Chris Webb and Bill Fisher – Newburyport Brewing aims to capture the essence of the City of Newburyport’s quaint seaside character across a line of handcrafted ales.

During the COVID-19 emergency, they have expanded their outdoor seating and live music space, with a variety of entertainment scheduled each week.

“Local businesses like Newburyport Brewing Company are the backbone of our economy and essential to job creation and growth,” said DiZoglio, a member of the legislature’s Manufacturing Caucus. “I was honored to nominate this great company, an exceptional example of American ingenuity, for this recognition. Now more than ever, they need our support as they work to get through this unprecedented and challenging time. I encourage folks to check out their fantastic space.”

“We are extremely honored to receive this award and we thank Senator DiZoglio for recognizing us,” said Chris Webb, co-founder of Newburyport Brewing Company. “It’s all about supporting local in this time and Bill Fisher and I greatly appreciate this award.”
