Beverly Armstrong: Founder of Massachusetts’ First woman and African American-owned brewery

“Session Ales All [email protected] Day.” That’s the slogan at Brazo Fuerte, the Massachusetts-based brewery founded and owned by Beverly Armstrong, a former biotech executive who left her job to pursue her love of craft beer.

Of course, everyone loves a great session, but few people can love AND appreciate session ales quite like Beverly.

According to Brazo Fuerte’s website, Beverly Armstrong, a former rugby player, set out on a mission to brew “the perfect post-game beer.” So, Beverly started brewing session beers that were “approachable while still full-flavored”.

Today, Beverly focuses her entire lineup on session beers that are brewed with organic and sustainable ingredients. In 2016, she was selected for the 2017 Samuel Adams’ Brewing The American Dream Award. This award is given to one craft brewer annually by Samuel Adams and the winner receives valuable coaching and mentorship from the large craft brewery.

Brazo Fuerte is putting out quite a nice lineup of beers, but I really want to try the Handsome Norm, a 4.4% ABV Black IPA named after a Navy veteran, and his great-granddog, who share the same namesake.

In case you were wondering, Brazo Fuerte is a nickname that was given to Beverly when she was on the rugby field. Translated from Spanish, Brazo (“Arm”) and Fuerte (“Strong”) come to together to make Arm Strong, a fitting nickname for not just a great craft brewer facing the challenges of the industry, but also a pioneer in the world of craft beer.

We wish nothing but success to Beverly and her team.

You can find Brazo Fuerte’s beers on tap, and in cans, all over the Boston area.
