Northampton brewery – a diamond in the not-so-rough. You won’t find Northampton’s brews anywhere but right here. This great little spot in the center of a most livable college town was the first location of the Egelston Family. After visiting Front Street Brewpub in Santa Cruz, California, brother and sister Peter and Janet Egelston launched Northampton Brewery in 1986. They went on to found Portsmouth Brewery and Smuttynose Brewing – pretty solid!
