The Switchback Brewing Company was founded in 2002 with one goal in mind – to brew unexpected, relatable, great tasting beer.
Business partners Bill Cherry and Jeff Neiblum combined Bill’s expertise in brewing and science with Jeff’s experience as a business entrepreneur. The very first pint of Switchback ever served was at Ake’s Place in Burlington, VT on October 22, 2002. Today, the Switchback lineup has grown to include over 20 beers as year-round offerings, rotating specials and limited releases and we haven’t stopped reimagining flavor.
We added the Tap Room at Switchback in 2014 as an outlet to showcase experimental brews and limited release batches you usually can’t find anywhere else. We also host beer-themed events including Stretch & Sip Yoga, Cheese and Beer Pairings and various educational classes.
Now available throughout New England and in New York, beer fans can enjoy Switchback's consistent quality and flavor on tap, in bottles and in cans wherever their adventures take them.
Switchback is the first 100% employee-owned brewery in New England.
