Wachusett Brewing Company – Wachusett Brewery founders Ned, Kevin and Peter developed a significant appreciation for beer while attending Worcester Polytechnic Institute. Adventures in biking, canoeing and hiking that led the trio to the Northern New England states allowed them to visit some of the first operating craft breweries. Armed with a “we can do this” attitude the three cast off from their careers in engineering and biology to found the Wachusett Brewing Co. in 1993. Wachusett Country Pale Ale was introduced to the beer fans of Massachusetts the next year after lots of experimenting to get the formula just right. When Wachusett opened, the three designed and built most of the equipment; did the brewing and filling, selling and delivering, and everything else that a small startup brewery needed.
Along the way the founders were joined by some of the most passionate and capable co-workers in the brewing industry. Wachusett Ales continue to be hand crafted with the finest ingredients available, bottled, canned and kegged in our Westminster facility. Wachusett Brewing Company has never strayed from the founder’s plan to brew and sell the freshest, highest quality beers possible.
Privateer Rum -America embodies freedom. And the men and women who served as privateers during our Revolution embodied it too. And passion. And a gritty, bare-knuckled determination to fight the good fight. And to profit from their success.
There was no easy way to win against the greatest sea power in the world. So privateers innovated. They changed the rules of engagement, and ultimately the outcome of the war.
Today, that same spirit drives us at Privateer Rum. A spirit that demands doing what you believe is right. Doing it well. And doing it your own way, even when this means defying convention.
Freedom. Innovation. Conviction. It’s in our DNA. It’s in our rum.

Verge Sport – The inspiration behind Verge Sport came from the clothing needs of an elite athlete. Racing in the European road cycling circuit throughout the early 1990s it became obvious to Michael Magur that the custom technical apparel needs of athletes were outpacing what was being delivered — the wheels turned and Verge Sport was born in 1996. Since those first orders on through to today, customer satisfaction has been at our core. Our goal is for you to be happy with not only the final product, but the entire ordering and communication process involved in bringing your design to life.
We look forward to another amazing season and want to thank all our sponsors for believing in us.
