ARTIFACT CIDER PROJECT
Artifact Cider Project makes cider for the new Northeast. They produce craft cider in a variety of styles by respecting tradition, but refusing to let it limit them. Using local apples and innovative cidermaking practices, they create ciders that are as authentic, eclectic, and forward-looking as the region they come from.
At Artifact, they believe that no two ciders should taste the same. They are inspired by their partners and customers—by the people making things happen and remaking this region in the process. Visit their website.

THE VALLEY ADVOCATE
Alternative Pioneer Valley News, Arts, and Entertainment
The Advocate is one of the more important local media outlets in the Pioneer Valley. They are unique in their approach to news and in their ability to reach a diverse audience. As a nimble alternative weekly newspaper with an eager and talented staff, they invest time developing stories about people, places and topics that the mainstream media doesn’t have the time or, in some instances, the desire to pursue.
Supported by a passionately engaged community comprising their owners, their colleagues and, most of all, their readers, they aren’t afraid to take risks, to pick fights, to indulge our artistic or literary inclinations and to push their points of view. Visit their website.

BRICK & FEATHER BREWERY
Brick & Feather brewery was born as the vision of a husband and wife team in 2015. Lawrence had been working in breweries across the country since 2007, and had always envisioned opening a small, family friendly brewery where he could fully execute a portfolio of beers true to their tastes. After moving to Northampton, the two eventually stumbled across the wonderful building in Turners Falls which the brewery occupies now. The fun little village is a perfect fit for Brick & Feather.
Brick & Feather beers are brewed on a manual 7-barrel system, mostly by hand, by Lawrence and his small staff. They work meticulously to produce beers meeting the highest standards of quality and consistency. The same people that make the beer will likely be pouring your beer for you when you visit, and they are always happy to chat with interested beer lovers! Visit their website.
