Otter Creek Brewing of Middlebury announced an agreement with Ken and Kathleen Strong, the founders of The Shed Restaurant in Stowe to have Otter Creek Brewing acquire The Shed Brewery and the award winning Shed brand family of ales.
The change is effective immediately. Plans are underway to transfer The Shed’s existing brewing equipment to Middlebury, Vermont- home of the Otter Creek Brewery and Wolaver’s Organic brands, so that there is no interruption in supply to the marketplace.
The Shed recently closed the landmark location on the Stowe Mountain Road.
“The Shed family is a Vermont treasure," Walsh said. "Otter Creek Brewing is proud to be able to continue the brewing history of The Shed.”
Mike Gerhart, Brewmaster at Otter Creek, has been working closely with Ken Strong on the details with The Shed recipes and equipment. The brewing traditions and additional capacity at Otter Creek is well positioned to continue the heritage and quality of an iconic Vermont brand.
