Founded by beer enthusiasts Michael Short and Dave Masterson, Hunterdon Brewing Company originally started out as a New Jersey contract brewer. Mike and Dave managed the company on their own, working tirelessly as both salesmen and delivery drivers for the first two years.
After hiring a few salesman and a couple of vans, the two entrepreneurs were able to take their business to the next level. In 2000, Mike and Dave realized the need for craft beer representation in the state of New Jersey and decided become a full-time beer wholesaler. Slowly, but surely, they began acquiring craft brands and getting additional sales reps out on the street. Over the next decade, the name ‘Hunterdon’ became synonymous with craft beer in New Jersey and more and more breweries looked to Mike and Dave for help distributing their product in the Garden State.
Located in Whitehouse Station, New Jersey and part of the Sheehan Family Companies, one of the largest distributor networks in America, Hunterdon Brewing Company now has over 150 full-time employees including 40+ sales reps on the road each day. We’re proud of our humble beginnings and are devoted to making New Jersey a great place to drink craft beverages.
