For those that got a ticket:

Tickets for Black Gold 2020 sold out in record time, and we truly appreciate all those that hopped online to get some. For those of you that got a ticket, On October 10, 2020, all you need to do is arrive at the brewery between 10am and 4pm, drive up, we scan your ticket, put the beer in your car, and you’re off. Limited contact beer pickup! As we near October, we will post more about directions and what you can expect. CHEERS!

For those that did not get a ticket:

When you sign up for the River Run’s virtual race this year, you get the 2020 Race Shirt (shipped to you) and commemorative can of River Run beer, but you also get the option to buy a bottle of BLACK GOLD (beer pick-up in person)!
Bottle pick-up will take place at the Jensen Community Center in Amherst on Oct. 10th (same day as brewery pick-up), from 10a-4p, $20/bottle, proxy pick-ups are allowed this year.
This is a great way to support our community center, get motivated to run or walk, and you get to enjoy a cold one! Register online at:

Patio Service Details:

In an effort to safely put pints in your hands in Amherst, we’ve developed a plan to begin service. Our beer garden will be open to groups of six or less, to sit outside on picnic and patio tables. These tables will be “first come, first served,” so once they’re full, you will have the option to follow waiting instructions. These tables will be spread out and sanitized between guests. In the event of rain, limited seating will be available under the awning, but we will not begin seating inside.

Bathrooms will be available inside, but all other activity will occur through the beer window on the patio. All beer will be served in disposable glasses to prevent contamination. To-go beer will be available through our online ordering system, so check out the website for a current list. To-go beer may NOT be consumed in our parking lot.

Masks are required when ordering beer from the window and coming inside to use the restroom.


Our  hours are as follows:

Monday 9-5pm

Tuesday 9-5pm

Wednesday 9-7pm

Thursday 9-7pm

Friday 9-9pm

Saturday 12-9pm

Sunday 12-7pm


We appreciate your cooperation and understanding as we navigate a new way of serving you. Hope to see you this weekend!

Sustainably and consciously

How we make delicious brews matters just as much as their distinctive taste. That’s why we craft ales and lagers straight from earth to sky. Bubbling tanks to aging barrels and our brewery taproom, our beers are sustainably crafted using solar heat and water conservation techniques.
