14th Star Brewing Company
Brewed with a Mission
The business plan for 14th Star Brewery was originally drafted on the back of a notebook by Steve Gagner while serving our country on the battlefields of Afghanistan.
Upon returning home to Vermont from deployment our founders, Steve and his best friend and fellow soldier Matt Kehaya, worked to refine their plans to make their dream of 14th Star Brewing Company a reality in 2012.
Matt and Steve first opened the doors to 14th Star Brewing Co in 2012 at 41 Lower Newton Street in St. Albans, brewing beer on a 3.5 bbl pilot brewhouse they hand-built using repurposed retrofitted maple sap collection tanks. For the first two years, the brewery operated selling bottles and growler fills out of the small tasting room. By 2014 the demand for more 14th Star beer was high, and with a growing staff, 14th Star was looking for a new home.
In November of 2014, we moved from our 3.5 barrel brewhouse to our current 30 barrel brewery and taproom located on Main Street where we are projected to produce over 8000 barrels of craft beer this year.
Because of the successful expansion, our beer can be found in cans or on tap at your favorite craft beer venues in Vermont, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, New York, New Jersey and Conneticut.
At our Taproom we feature exclusive releases and a rotating lineup of draft, canned and bottled craft beer. A gathering place for friends, family and craft beer lovers alike, we frequently play host to live local entertainment and music on our stage and many charitable events.
At 14th Star, our commitment to our community always at the forefront of whatever we do. Our goal is to be outstanding corporate citizens and to consistently provide quality products for our consumers.
Great beer is waht we produce, community is what we build.
