Known as a craft beer microbrewery that was founded in 2007 by a tenth great grandson of John Alden, a beer barrel cooper on board the famous Mayflower, the brewery is super dedicated to celebrating the history and legacy of the Pilgrims by creating truly unique, high-quality ales for the New England market.
It’s a little-known fun fact that beer was the beverage of choice on the Mayflower, with sailors receiving a ration of about a gallon of it a day. According to Plymouth colony founder, they essentially chose to disembark at Plymouth because they were running low on beer. Who knew History could be this much fun.

Their amazing product line includes a set of year-round beers that honor traditional English ales, seasonal beers that celebrate our New England weather, and small batch releases that give provide them a creative chance to try out new ideas.
The Mayflower Brewery continues that proud American tradition today by producing only the finest craft beers using the same water that the Pilgrims drank way back in the 1600s. Packaged in kegs, cans and bottles, they are currently distributing the beer in Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New Hampshire, Connecticut, Vermont, and Maine.
