About The Brewery

Straight from our farm brewery to your glass.

With over 100 years of farming roots in the Nunes family, and nearly 25 years of winemaking; crafting, fermenting and perfecting the beverage-making process; Taproot Brewing Co. was born in 2018. Equipped with a state-of-the-art seven-barrel brewhouse, the brewing team of owner John Nunes and brewer Kevin Beachem, focus on unfiltered hop-forward beers made in small batches and meant to be enjoyed immediately for the ultimate freshness.

Come for the beer and nosh on our farm-focused menus, artisanal cheeses, or house-made pretzels – for an afternoon overlooking the vines. Or join us upstairs at Brix for our dinner hours, where Taproot beers will be flowing paired with Brix’s signature scratch fare.
