Now we flash forward to modern times. During which a man tired of his 9-5 job decided to start a brewery and live the good life. (As we all have thought about at one time or another) Fast forward 8 years later and we find ourselves touring a fine facility boasting a 20 Bbl brewing capacity. With a number of 40-100Bbl fermenters at the facility, distribution in MA, NH, RI is no problem for this craft brewery.
Having done a fair amount of beer exploring I was no stranger to Mayflower brews, though for the most part they were the mainstream year round ones. Not that they’re not all solid players, but I have to say the seasonal line up was quite enjoyable. For my money I especially liked the Summer Belgian Rye Ale. It was crisp and refreshing as a Belgian should be but with a nice hop aroma that danced on the back of your palette.
All in all I would recommend doing the tour and the tasting, both were very informative and a good way to spend a Saturday. Till we sail again, stay quenched.
