Tree House Brewing
Tree House Brewing is a vertitable Eden in tiny Brimfield, with views of the Pioneer Valley mountainside, a koi pond perfect for picnicking, and a fire pit where visitors lounge with growlers of Nate Lanier’s fantastic beers. “We work hard to make our little brewery a beautiful space to kill a few hours,” says Lanier. “It’s a peaceful, invigorating space.”
Inspired by the highly sought after Hill Farmstead beers in Vermont, but tired of the lengthy commute, Lanier says he tried his own hand at brewing on a small kit bought for him by his girlfriend. Tree House still ferments from the confines of their limited basement space, making two of the best IPAs anywhere in the Northeast, Sap, brewed exclusively with Chinook hops and Julius, a sticky hop bomb with notes of grapefruit and mango.
Now, in less than two years, Lanier has made Brimfield another Greensboro and beer fans the world over are going out of their way to sample Tree House’s rotating cast of delicacies. Besides the different styles of IPAs, Lanier also makes a decadent milk stout, That’s What She Said, and an exciting ESB, the Old Man Special Bitter.
