Under the agreement, Mass. Bay Brewing will continue to operate the Long Trail Riverside Pub in Bridgewater Corners, but will start brewing Long Trail, Otter Creek and Shed beers at the Harpoon Brewery in Windsor, V.T.

WhistlePig Whiskey, a Vermont-based distillery with ties to Mass. Bay Brewing., will take over the Otter Creek and Shed brewery in Middlebury, V.T. Mass. Bay Brewing will operate the Otter Creek Brewing Pub & Beer Garden.

“We have a shared commitment to the Vermont community and passion for making great beer...we are hopeful that we can continue to grow both our brands and job opportunities in the Vermont community.” Kenary said.
