When driving down the crushed seashell driveway to Buzzards Bay Brewing in Westport, it’s impossible to ignore the scenery. The open fields, stone walls, and cedar shake farmhouse are quintessential coastal New England. There is solitude and history here. It is a place to enjoy good beer, good company, and to reflect back upon a simpler time. A time when family farms tamed the then-wild landscape and communities were indelibly tied to the natural world around them.
