Hitchcock Brewing

203 South St, Bernardston, MA

HBC, named after ancient Glacial Lake Hitchcock, started as 10-barrel farm brewery in May 2016. It was located in Whately, MA amidst views of Sugarloaf Mountain, Hitchcock Hopyard, historic tobacco barns and acres and acres of active farmland. In October 2019 the brewery moved to the new location in Bernardson.
The brewery’s opening was the culmination of a 30-year vision for the husband and wife team of Rich & Geneva Pedersen. After working for 30 years in their respective professions, Rich in the IT field and Geneva in the medical field, they decided to retire and follow their dreams.

What to drink

Heads Or Tails

Brown Ale

A light bodied copper ale, presenting a soft malt sweetness with a hint of roast and juiciness to finish. An all around easy drinking winter warmer.


Black Cherry Hard Seltzer

Hard Seltzer

This is our debut into the hard seltzer arena. Beautiful to look at with a light cherry color from the fruit puree. Bubbly and fresh on the palate with a hint of black cherry. Finishes clean and goes down quick.


Raspberry Hurricane Porter


Our Hurricane Porter infused with a Raspberry reduction made from local raspberries from the Nourse Berry farm down the road in Whately, MA. The light raspberry notes blend nicely with the chocolate and coffee notes of the Hurricane Porter.


Stoopid Nelson

IPA - Imperial / Double

A big West Coast style DIPA, golden in color with plenty of piney and tropical fruit hop bite from the Simcoe and Nelson hops.


Nitro Stout

Stout - Irish Dry

A traditional Irish style Stout with roasty notes of coffee and chocolate.


Little Wizzer

Lager - Helles

A light crisp German Helles (Lager) lightly hopped with Hallertau Mittlefrau German Hops. A beer like your Uncle BuDdy would make when in a cold mountain Colorado Stream…Dilly Dilly


Crossover Golden Ale

Golden Ale

An easy drinking golden ale that is light and crisp. Clear and golden in color, it finishes clean with just a hint of citrus from the local Cascade hops from Four Star Farms in Northfield.


Single Bottom IPA

IPA - American

A delicious citrusy east coast style IPA. Made with a bucketload of dry hopped Citra hops. Light in color, this beer is a showcase for the grapefruit and lemon flavors that Citra hops provide.


Double Bottom IPA

IPA - Imperial / Double

A New England Style Almost Double IPA with an easy drinking body and notes of Honey yet finishes dry. A nice floral aroma of citrus and pineapple from the dry hopped mosaic hops.


Angry Sparrow

Pale Ale - American

A crisp mid-west style Pale Ale with a slight malt forward and complex body that is well balanced by Columbus Hops. Leaves the palate clean and ready for the next sip


Hurricane Porter


Traditional Porter with a rich and delicious mouthfeel and notes of chocolate and roasted coffee that finishes clean.
