About Us

Oak & Iron Brewing® Co. is Andover's hometown brewery. The vision for Oak & Iron Brewing® was created by Jim Cass and John Helferich, two former business colleagues and longtime friends who conspired to transform their passion for great beer into a small yet mighty American craft brewery. 

Their past business experiences in sales, marketing, R&D, engineering and general management aligned perfectly for this initiative. “We helped build some of the greatest global brands for others, now we wanted to do it for ourselves.”

Jim and John envisioned a brewery that captured the New England spirit: independent, innovative, hearty, and rugged with a great heritage. "We dreamed of creating flavorful, handcrafted beers and a great social experience for the people in our community," says Cass, who along with Helferich, have deep roots in Massachusetts. 

Based in Andover MA, Oak & Iron brews: New England-inspired seasonals and time-honored classics in small, artisanal batches

Locals can enjoy the casual, convivial brewery taproom, as well as pick up a growler to take home. The business also plans to distribute kegs to local restaurants and bars in the future.

Oak & Iron Brewery® opened its doors in April 2017. Please contact Jim at jim@oakandironbrewing.com with questions or comments.   

Oak & Iron Brewing Co. is a place where strangers become friends and friends become family. We welcome you, your friends, and your family to join us.
