our story

 

THE MISSION

We want to deliver this highest quality beers to the active beer drinker all d@mn day.

We are a sustainable craft beer company dedicated to brewing high-quality session ales that you can drink all day.  What that means to us is using the best, most unique and local ingredients. We are also committed to sharing ways smaller craft brewers can find sustainable methods to brew.

WHAT'S IN A NAME

Founder Beverly Armstrong, a Massachusetts resident and rugby player, had a quest to brew the perfect "post-game" beer. To find this beer, Bev started brewing Session beers which are approachable while still full-flavored.  "Brazo Fuerte" was a nickname given to Bev by her teammates on rugby tours to Spain and Venezuela several years ago.  In Spanish, "Brazo" means Arm and "Fuerte" means Strong.  The name is fitting for a passionate, athletic, and green-conscious woman who is fully engaged in giving back to her community.

WHERE WE BREW

We currently brew in the greater Boston area and are actively working on collaboration brews that help us further our mission and reach new communities in new ways.

 

 

 

OUR beer

SESSION ALES ALL D@MN DAY

 

WHAT IS A SESSION BEER? Session beers are easy-drinking, low-to-moderate alcohol beers (3.0-4.5% ABV) and can come in many varieties and styles. The concept of session beer is beers that you can drink for a long “session” (because the alcohol content is lower) with the goal of enjoying the company of others.

ORGANIC & Sustainable

Our craft beer is brewed with ingredients you feel great about consuming. We want to lower our impact on the earth by sourcing as locally as possible and thinking thoroughly through our brewing cycle and our business practices. 

A FUN COMMUNITY

Part of our goal is to bring new communities of beer drinkers together who may not have been part of the craft beer revolution.  We do this by producing innovative and approachable beers for all to enjoy.  This includes using inviting and unique ingredients like goji berries, green tea, cacao and ginger.

big e session IPA

4.4% ABV, 44 IBUs

Big E Session IPA is an easy-drinking session beer with a lot of character. This beer has a west coast-style hop burst, brewed with 4 different hops that add fruity, tropical and earthy flavors with just the right amount of bitterness. Why is it named "Big E"? A rugby teammate and friend, named Erin, moved out west and developed a taste for hoppy west-coast-style beers. She also started training for 50 mile marathons. Can we say "Rock Star!?!"

BrazoFuerteHandsomee

Handsome Norm, Black IPA

4.4% ABV, 40 IBUs

A sessionable black ale brewed with a carefully chosen mix of malts that provide hints of chocolate, toffee and molasses, and yet finishes crisp.
