An Old English word meaning “a playfully mischievous individual,” we adopted the name Rapscallion from a special line of beers within Concord Brewery’s portfolio when we became its fourth ownership group in 2007. The name appealed to us for its history, its uniqueness and most of all its association with rebelliousness. We’ve always cheered for the underdog, the self-made person, and the Robin Hoods of the world, because we believe in living with humility, working hard, and giving back. To this day, the name “Rapscallion” continues to hold true as a moniker of a model which is defiantly small: Rapscallion is a MA-only microbrewery that puts freshness, quality, and consistency above all else, honoring the craft, the Rapscallion customer, and the communities we call home.
Our team is present and hands-on. At the brewery, our head brewer sees every batch through from start to finish, creating truly hand-brewed rather than craft brewed beer. At our restaurants, our chefs are assisted by a small, hand-picked team in preparing each dish. Behind the scenes, our management staff members not only have expertise in their respective fields, but also roll up their sleeves, wear many hats, and cheerfully fill in wherever needed. Our team truly is a family.
As owners, we are present every day, greeting customers and guiding our crew. If we are not there when you visit, you will likely find us out in the community, connecting with other small business owners, pouring our beer at a charitable event, or stealing some time with our families.
