In order to meet market demand, Everett-based Night Shift Brewing has partnered with Isle Brewers Guild in Pawtucket, Rhode Island. The need to seek resources outside of Night Shift’s original Everett facility became apparent when existing space was officially maximized in early 2017. The company’s leadership has described this new partnership as a “sustainable way to test growth” while they evaluate future opportunities to expand capacity.
For Night Shift’s head brewer Joe Mashburn, Isle Brewers Guild (IBG) represents an opportunity to grow and learn in a tried-and-true environment. “IBG is already producing great beers with their other brewing partners, so it was an easy decision to partner with them. They share our passion for quality and consistency, and are committed to helping us produce Night Shift beers at their top-notch facility.”
Night Shift Brewing joins a client list that already includes two members of the Night Shift Distributing portfolio, Great North Aleworks of Portsmouth, New Hampshire, and Devil’s Purse Brewing Company of South Dennis. Products produced at the Pawtucket facility will not only be available in Night Shift’s current markets—Massachusetts, Maine, and New York—but also at The Guild in cans and on draft. This will mark the first time Night Shift Brewing’s beer can be purchased in the state of Rhode Island.
“As Night Shift Brewing continues its great growth and popularity, Isle Brewers Guild is excited to partner and help support their production needs,” says Jeremy Duffy, co-founder and partner at Isle Brewers Guild. “The brewers are already working with the Night Shift team, and are excited about the world-class beers that are about to be produced.”
The Night Shift Brewing production team will continue to be extremely hands-on with all recipes and processes, traveling to Rhode Island for brew days, and performing extensive quality control testing on all products entering the market. The first products from this partnership will be hitting shelves and draft lines in February 2018!
