Born out of a love for craft beer, Rutland Beer Works began in 2014 as Hop 'N Moose Brewing Company. Hop 'N Moose brought us some classics, such as Rutland Red and Blueberry Blonde, and put Rutland on the map as a contender in the Vermont brewing scene.
As love for our beer grew, so did we. In 2017, we moved to a larger 15-barrel production facility and decided to change our name to one that better reflected our Rutland roots. Since then, we have been able to further perfect our craft and expand our reach throughout Vermont and beyond.
We pride ourselves on creating a variety of high-quality beers with a comfortable and down-to-earth feel. We aren't going to try and dazzle you with flashy buzzwords - we just make good beer. Period.
Come see for yourself at Hop 'N Moose Pub which still houses our tasting room. You can check out the current tap list and and menu here.
