Voted 2018 Best New Brewery in Massachusetts by

Ever-changing originality

Our home is in the first floor of an antique mill building in the quaint micro city of Amesbury, MA. Our 4,000 square foot slice o’ paradise is divvied up into our main production space, (on display from your seat in the taproom), The Funkyard (where we keep all our barrel-aged goodies), and our rootin’ tootin’ taproom space, home to dope draft brewskies, live music sets, and a laid-back atmosphere reminiscent of your best friends' living room.

We are driven by creativity, we practice our time-honed tradecraft, we move forward with purpose. Our symbol is the vermillion poppy - one of nature’s purest and most vivid beauties - but lasting only a day. Creating brand new beers every month is a process that promises both ever-changing newness and the opportunity to live in the transitory. By eschewing a regular lineup of beers, we challenge ourselves, our customers, our friends, to a game of trust: What we came to love is always leaving us, but the next and greatest thing is right around the corner. What better way to tackle our pesky mortality than to share a beer with those we love?

Meet The Team

Paul Bareford

As co-founder of the brewery, Paul’s main jams are biz ops, 60’s rock and roll, money stuff, and Motown blues, but he is also the go-to for everything from event coordination to staging heavy equipment to chillin’ in the taproom taking in the vibe and greeting our regulars.

Stevie Bareford
Co-Founder & Brewer

Stevie is BareWolf's other founding member, beleaguered lover of possums, drinker of micheladas, and fanatical enthusiast of wild beers. His role at BareWolf includes, but is not limited to: misguided pep talks, rabble rousing, distracting banter and occasional brewing. You can often find Stevie drinking a beer and pointing at something in BareWolf's production space.

wylie bednar

Wylie is the brewery's resident friendly Midwesterner and beer pun master. She's worked at several other Boston-area breweries before coming to BareWolf to focus on creativity and tradecraft in brewing. While she's not at BareWolf, Wylie loves to watch B-movies, see live music, and figure out how to make good vegetarian ramen. In addition to brewing the beer, Wylie also organizes BareWolf's live music programming and spends too much time taking beer pictures for the brewery Instagram.

John saulnier

Johnny was one of our first local regulars in the taproom, and our favorite canning line operator.  You’ll often hear his contagious laughter from production as he makes an obscure movie quote. Self appointed as the “People's Brewer” you’ll find John sipping suds with other townies well after his brew shift ends. When you see Johnny Boi be sure to ask him his favorite Pokémon, but be prepared for a nonstop conversation!
