Matt Whalen and Carrie Blackmore believe people care more about a product they’re connected to.
Good Nature Farm Brewery & Tap Room uses local ingredients in its “farm to glass” beer to give a sense of ownership to their fans. That commitment has built a community around Good Nature and upped the capacity of the brewery 10-fold in just about a year.
Whalen’s background as a chef gives him an adventurous spirit and intense attention to detail when crafting his recipes. Good Nature produces a number of limited releases in addition to its core line.
In a way, every release is limited. But, that’s on purpose.
Everything’s done in-house, from corking their own bottles to delivering their own kegs.
Like Whalen says, life’s too short for bad beer. So it’s important for this team of three – Marc Fishel is assistant brewer – to keep that personal touch.
Good Nature’s Tap Room in downtown Hamilton – offering pints of Good Nature brew as well as a few other local favorites – is open Tuesday through Saturday as well as some Sundays.
