Old Planters Brewery

Old Planters is a boutique nanobrewery that specializes in brewing hop forward ales in small batches. We take pride in our practice of classic brewing techniques while also utilizing innovative equipment and technology to make well balanced craft beer. We use the best ingredients we can get our hands on, while always keeping an eye on sustainability. Our brewery is a tribute to the Old Planters, the founding fathers of Beverly, MA. Located just north of Boston, these men settled our favorite suburban oasis, the place we call home. We hope that you enjoy our beer as much as we do. Cheers!


Tommyrotter Distillery

A few years ago while watching the Bruins win the Stanley Cup we decided to share our passions with the world by creating the Newburyport Brewing Company.

We make every effort to preserve each barrels unique markings, original colors and imprints making each piece truly one-of-a-kind.

 Re-purposing the ordinary into something extraordinary!


Kuvee

Not that vinegary Chardonnay in the fridge. Not the confusion of “floral notes” or “high tannins”. Not the paralyzing choice of wine that forces us to stick to our tried and tested. Not the inability to tell a waiter what exactly you want. Not the should-I-waste-this-or-just-get-wasted? Not even the silly cork.
That’s why we’re here. We want to free you to be able to truly enjoy that wine in your hand. The wine you really want. Right now. With your chicken. With Kuvée you can keep multiple bottles open at the same time and tasting just as great as when you first opened them. We help you effortlessly switch between them. We work directly with vineyards and winemakers, some famous ones you know, some off-the-beaten-path we hope to introduce to you. Regardless, all of our wines are selected for their quality, value, and level of craft so you can be certain that what you are drinking is going to be good no matter what. And we help you learn about the wine as you drink so you can always find one you’ll love, whether you’re with us, in the store or ordering off the wine menu while out to dinner.
We give you the freedom to have what you truly want, when you want it. We uncork possibilities.

Downeast Cider

No matter the cost to us, we are fully committed to using only fresh-pressed juices and pure, natural ingredients in our cider. When it comes to flavor, there’s no substitute for the best, and that’s what we stand by: simple, honest, authentic.


Stella Artois

The Anno 1366 on the Stella Artois logo refers to the origin of brewing in the city of Leuven. The city’s tax records dated 1366 mention the existence of a local brewpub called Den Hoorn, (‘Hoorn’ in Dutch meaning ‘Horn’ in English, as is represented in the logo on the beer label). The name Artois was coupled to the brewery in 1708, when new owner Sebastian Artois achieved the title of master brewer. The frame that surrounds the name Stella Artois on the label refers to the traditional style of window frame found in Flemish architecture.


The Cork Stop
The Cork Stop is a local wine and craft beer shop that brings a unique element to the area. Created by two school teachers, Sophia Stamos and Valerie Gidaris-Papantonakis The Cork Stop was a dream that came to reality, when the opportunity presented itself. Coincidentally, the pair hired their husbands, Frank (wine director) and Nick (craft beer director), to run the day to day operation for The Cork Stop. The team crafted a philosophy of only offering quality produced wines from smaller wineries around the world that practice organic farming and have very little intervention in their wine making methods. Their campaign slogan is ‘Drink Better Wine’, which pays tribute to all the winemakers they work with that have a deep passion for producing high quality wines naturally.
Goose Island

Our famous beer began with a trip across Europe, when Goose Island founder (and unabashed beer lover) John Hall took a tour across the continent. Pint by pint, he savored the styles and selections of brews in every region, and thought to himself, “America deserves some damn fine beer like this, too.” First he made some stellar beer. Then he invited his consumers in to watch his process at the brewery, bringing them behind the scenes every step of the way. The result was a new fascination with craft brewing, and beer that not only catered to people’s tastes, but challenged them as well. That was back in 1988, and we haven’t slowed down since. By 1995, John’s beer had become so popular that he decided to open a larger brewery, along with a bottling plant to keep up with demand. 1999 brought even more growth, along with an additional brewpub, and today, what was once one man’s pint-filled dream has become the Goose Island empire you know and love.


Eva's Farm Organic Butcher Shop

Our passion behind this business comes from our personal experiences with food and health. I am a Type 1 diabetic and allergic to gluten. In researching what celiac (allergy to gluten) was and how it gets into food, my wife and I were amazed at the way our food is processed. We decided to transform the way we eat, not only for ourselves but for our daughter.
My wife and I then took a look at the meats we were eating and used the information below, which compares grass-fed to grain-fed; to further help us make the decision to eat sustainable and organic food. We have made a table to help compare the information as well.


Atlantic Grill

Michael and Peter Labrie grew up in a family involved in the community, with a love of and support for the arts; their grandmother Rose Labrie was an author and a Naïve Art painter who was one of the founders of Prescott Park Arts Festival in Portsmouth.
In fact, even before they opened their first restaurant, Michael and Peter sought out Prescott Park Arts Festival and made a commitment to sponsor its Wednesday night Concert Series. The response from the public was tremendous and next they approached The Music Hall, where they have been season sponsors for several years. And again, even before their Rye restaurant opened this year, they made a commitment to support Seacoast Science Center’s popular outdoor concert series, Atlantic Grill Music-by-the-Sea Concert Series.


Seacoast Sweets

“For as far back as I can remember, my grandfather gave boxes of his homemade peppermint patties to our family as Christmas gifts. Like most kids, I would be excited for the holiday, but more than anything else, I looked forward to being able to eat his chocolates again. As we began to share with our friends and neighbors, demand grew to the point at which I recognized an opportunity. I approached my grandfather with the idea to sell his peppermint patties, he passed down the recipe, and out of my dorm room in 2010, the aptly named Seacoast Sweets was born.

The spirits are then blended and finished in our New England rum house. This process allows us to blend extraordinary flavors, while hand finishing our rum. The result is memorable spirits and memorable stories. Share them both.



Privateer Rum

Our founder’s ancestor, the original Andrew Cabot, was a merchant, rum distiller and one of the most successful American privateers. His fleet totaled more than twenty-five ships including the True American for which our amber rum is named.

Today we carry on his spirit of New England independence and gritty determination by dedicating ourselves to making only the purest spirits, from the highest quality ingredients available.



New Belgium

Goose Island

Our famous beer began with a trip across Europe, when Goose Island founder (and unabashed beer lover) John Hall took a tour across the continent. Pint by pint, he savored the styles and selections of brews in every region, and thought to himself, “America deserves some damn fine beer like this, too.” First he made some stellar beer. Then he invited his consumers in to watch his process at the brewery, bringing them behind the scenes every step of the way. The result was a new fascination with craft brewing, and beer that not only catered to people’s tastes, but challenged them as well. That was back in 1988, and we haven’t slowed down since. By 1995, John’s beer had become so popular that he decided to open a larger brewery, along with a bottling plant to keep up with demand. 1999 brought even more growth, along with an additional brewpub, and today, what was once one man’s pint-filled dream has become the Goose Island empire you know and love.


The Cork Stop
The Cork Stop is a local wine and craft beer shop that brings a unique element to the area. Created by two school teachers, Sophia Stamos and Valerie Gidaris-Papantonakis The Cork Stop was a dream that came to reality, when the opportunity presented itself. Coincidentally, the pair hired their husbands, Frank (wine director) and Nick (craft beer director), to run the day to day operation for The Cork Stop. The team crafted a philosophy of only offering quality produced wines from smaller wineries around the world that practice organic farming and have very little intervention in their wine making methods. Their campaign slogan is ‘Drink Better Wine’, which pays tribute to all the winemakers they work with that have a deep passion for producing high quality wines naturally.
Stella Artois

The Anno 1366 on the Stella Artois logo refers to the origin of brewing in the city of Leuven. The city’s tax records dated 1366 mention the existence of a local brewpub called Den Hoorn, (‘Hoorn’ in Dutch meaning ‘Horn’ in English, as is represented in the logo on the beer label). The name Artois was coupled to the brewery in 1708, when new owner Sebastian Artois achieved the title of master brewer. The frame that surrounds the name Stella Artois on the label refers to the traditional style of window frame found in Flemish architecture.


Downeast Cider

Where others have used juice from concentrate, “natural flavorings,” “essences,” artificial sweeteners, and an endless list of excuses, Downeast Cider House has a firmly established policy of NO SHORTCUTS. No matter the cost to us, we are fully committed to using only fresh-pressed juices and pure, natural ingredients in our cider. When it comes to flavor, there’s no substitute for the best, and that’s what we stand by: simple, honest, authentic.

Kuvee

Not that vinegary Chardonnay in the fridge. Not the confusion of “floral notes” or “high tannins”. Not the paralyzing choice of wine that forces us to stick to our tried and tested. Not the inability to tell a waiter what exactly you want. Not the should-I-waste-this-or-just-get-wasted? Not even the silly cork.
That’s why we’re here. We want to free you to be able to truly enjoy that wine in your hand. The wine you really want. Right now. With your chicken. With Kuvée you can keep multiple bottles open at the same time and tasting just as great as when you first opened them. We help you effortlessly switch between them. We work directly with vineyards and winemakers, some famous ones you know, some off-the-beaten-path we hope to introduce to you. Regardless, all of our wines are selected for their quality, value, and level of craft so you can be certain that what you are drinking is going to be good no matter what. And we help you learn about the wine as you drink so you can always find one you’ll love, whether you’re with us, in the store or ordering off the wine menu while out to dinner.
We give you the freedom to have what you truly want, when you want it. We uncork possibilities.


Newburyport Brewing Co.

We brew great beer, play in an 8-piece funk band and love adventure. A few years ago while watching the Bruins win the Stanley Cup we decided to share our passions with the world by creating the Newburyport Brewing Company. Our brand is based on three things… Using the best ingredients in the world to brew amazing beer, sharing Newburyport and its rich seaport history (the Coast Guard was founded here), and going on adventures with great beer in a can.
And music. We play it. We love it. And by the way, there’s a stage at our brewery for up and coming local bands to some of the world’s finest to jam.

Gambino Prosecco

Gambino Prosecco DOC is the brainchild of Tommaso Gambino and Juliann Gold… the cultures of Italy and America come together. Gambino Prosecco DOC is golden straw in color. The bubbles are full textured and persistent. On the nose the prosecco brings fresh citrus with hints of white peach and toast. The flavor is crisp and clean with and elegant dry finish.

Tommyrotter Distillery

Our creative process is inspired by the Tommyrotters’ Club, a band of rebellious craftsmen and artisans in the early 20th century who broke rank from the Arts and Crafts Movement to create for creation’s sake. They sought adventure, mischief and inspiration in nature. Their work honored an industrious spirit of back, hand and heart.
