MassLive: Beer Nut: Leadfoot Brewing finds home at historic Chicopee brewery site


“Suffice it to say that my father liked his beer, so I come by my enthusiasm for it honestly.

Now, Dad probably wouldn’t have cared about craft beer (and indeed was certainly still alive well into the first craft beer boom of the 1980s and ‘90s) as he drank pretty inexpensive American lager. After moving to Massachusetts, he basically gravitate towards brands like Schlitz, Black Label and Hampden Ale. And it’s that last beer that is germane to this column.”
