The Amherst Brewing Company is a full-service brewpub located in Amherst, Massachusetts. Established in 1997 by a small group of investors, the ABC originally occupied the lower level of the former First National Bank building off North Pleasant Street. Over time, ABC went through three expansions. The first took place in 2002 with the creation of a game room and lounge on the second floor called "The Upstairs at ABC". In 2004, the upstairs was expanded by adding a larger bar, two more pool tables, and other facilities. In 2008, we expanded the downstairs dining room, creating a new entrance and adding much-needed space to the kitchen and storage facilities. A retail nook was created to display ABC merchandise and growlers for sale from the brewery. Our most recent and biggest move was to 10 University Drive, which was formerly occupied by Gold's Gym, and before that, a supermarket. The space offers a roomy interior--which is ideal for family dining, watching sports, and hosting events--high ceilings, more space to brew, and a substantial outdoor patio for warm weather dining. There is ample, free parking in the front lot--a definite perk for anyone who struggled to find parking in downtown Amherst in the past! The highlight of the new venue is a 100-foot, copper top bar with a unique leaf pattern and front molding crafted from African Sapele wood. We know this eye-catching addition will quickly become a favorite among regulars and new customers alike. The University Drive location gives us the chance to serve our loyal customers even better, offering you more beer, more seating, free parking, and the warm, welcoming atmosphere you have always appreciated--all in a brand new space.
