Great Minds Drink Alike
Bright Ideas Brewing Company serving unique beer and specialty food.
What do an oncologist and an arts marketer have in common?
Beer. Of course.
Orion Howard, Eric Kerns, and master brewer Chris Post, are the geniuses behind Bright Ideas Brewing Company, located at the MASS MoCA campus. The brewery had a “soft opening” in April, serving more than 500 pints. Since then, Howard says that a steady influx of regulars has demonstrated that a need has finally been met.
“We believe we’ve found the right model,” he says. There is something for every taste at the brewery. Budweiser loyalists become IPA converts, wine drinkers are pleasantly delighted by the tart Gose brew, and folks looking to get their eat on enjoy unique sandwiches, charcuterie, and dressed greens provided by onsite caterer Bon Tricycle.
“We’re very much about our blue-collar spirit here and try not to get too precious,” says Kerns. “It’s beer, man.”
