Senator Adam Hinds - Senator Adam Hinds' Small Business SpotlightMeet Andrew Crane and Nick Whalen the owners of Shire Breu-Hous in Dalton, Massachusetts. I visited them today, just before their opening this Friday.

Every corner in their place is an ode to local materials and work, from an old tree on family property that now makes up the bar and tables to famous local marble. The $700,000 they spent on renovations make it a special gathering place for sure.

Their top notch beer adds to a growing number of breweries that make the Berkshires a center of gravity in the growing craft beer market. More reasons for folks to visit the Berkshires and Dalton!
