Night Shift Brewing’s recently launched wholesale operation, Night Shift Distributing, has signed its first four craft brewery partners. Announced Wednesday, the wholesaler wing of the Everett, Massachusetts-headquartered craft brewery will begin selling products from Pipeworks Brewing Company (Chicago, Illinois), Magnify Brewing (Fairfield, New Jersey), Mast Landing Brewing Company (Westbrook, Maine) and the Reinheits Boten Group (New York importer of German beer) in early April.
How do you maintain the vital culture of a craft brewery while it grows distribution and expands into new businesses? It’s a question many young breweries are forced to answer, as they struggle with balancing the spirit that builds a brand with the need for experienced leadership, the demand for increased sales, and more capacity. Night Shift Brewing is trying to figure it out right now: The Everett, Mass. brewery recently hired two C-level executives to join its team, and it’s once again looking to double production and sales. Meanwhile, the brewery is also trying to support a new wholesaling business — Night Shift Distributing — and managing a growing roster of employees.
In a move that underscores the ongoing tension between beer wholesalers and brewers in Massachusetts, up-and-coming Night Shift Brewing has launched a full-scale distribution business aimed at challenging what the brewery calls an anti-competitive and archaic system.
In July, Massachusetts Treasurer Deborah Goldberg promised to assemble a task force that would examine the state’s decades-old liquor laws. Three months later, additional details have emerged on what that group will look like, and what it will be asked to accomplish. “According to the treasurer’s office, it will be an autonomous body, free of all control, including the long reach of Bill Kelley and the wholesalers and the brewers,” John Connell, a Boston-based alcohol attorney who represents clients across all three tiers of the industry, told a room of more than 150 beer industry professionals attending last night’s Brew Talks meetup at Jack’s Abby.
For the latest entry in Night Shift Brewing’s Weisse series, the brew crew took our Berliner base and added a whole ton of those red berries during fermentation – thus, Bramble Weisse was born. Previously known as Raspberry Simple Sour, this stunning sour ale is as bold as it looks, with raspberry and lemon flavors throughout and a clean, crisp finish.
The MABG has been supporting the industry since 2007, and for six years, Rob Martin, founder of Ipswich Ale Brewery, has been leading the charge. Early last week, however, the Guild appointed Rob Burns, co-founder of Night Shift Brewing, as their new President.
Night Shift Brewing just signed a 10-year lease on a 30,000 sq. ft. warehouse in Chelsea, MA. This effectively doubles the brewery’s footprint, adding to its 30,000 sq. ft. facility in Everett, MA (a five minute drive from the Chelsea warehouse). The lease, which begins in October, will allow the Everett location to focus on making beer and adding tank space, while the Chelsea location will serve in a supportive role, storing raw ingredients and finished product.
Night Shift Brewing is gearing up for three big bottle releases in early July. The first is set to kick off on Sunday, July 3rd at 11am with a double release day of Timbo Slice – a new, limited barrel-aged sour golden ale aged with tangerines and apricots – and Harborside – a seasonal summer gose brewed with Island Creek Oysters.
