Slack Tide Brewing opened in 2015 with a 27-gallon brewing system and a 6-barrel cellar. As we grew, we upgraded to a 3-barrel system and 18-barrel cellar space. Then, in September 2018 we began canning our beer. In April 2019, Slack Tide expanded to a 10 Barrel System with a 120-barrel cellar. In the Fall of 2020, we upgraded our canning line to increase the number of cans that are produced. Then in early 2021, we received several new tanks. This is the system that we run off of today! We have sent some of our beers to competitions and gratefully received several awards. Including a bronze from the GABF for Avalon Amber and a silver in the ACBF for Angry Osprey. See others on our Awards Page. In December of 2021, the brewery canned our One-Millionth can.
In early 2022 we began breaking ground on our new brewery site and opened the doors on June 30th 2023. We are now located on Route 9, less than a mile from our original location.
We have now expanded to a 20 barrel system with a 360-barrel cellar. In addition, we have a 3-barrel pilot system! Check out the Tasting Room tab for more information about your visit.
