Our Brewmaster


Brewmaster Will Gilson has been with us since the fall of 2012 managing the renovation and installation of our Brewhouse. Will comes to Crop with 20 years of diverse brewing experience. His last tenure was as the founding brewer of the Moat Mountain Smoke House & Brewing Co. in North Conway, N.H. Prior to that while he was busy pursuing his passion for skiing, Will was approached by Squatters Brewpub in Salt Lake City, Utah, and asked to lend a helping hand during their busy season.

After that, Will moved to Jackson Hole, Wyoming, where he worked as part of the brewing team at Snake River Brewing Company.

Will has been concocting brews of straw and golden Lagers, big malty Double Bocks, Amber Ales, IPA’s and Double IPA’s, Brown ales and Stouts, Belgian-influenced ales, and his famous New England specialty, classic Bavarian weizens. Crop bottles select brews in 22 ounce bottles, including our Helles Lager, Crop Weizen, and Idletyme IPA.

We now sell growlers and kegs!  Contact us for more information.
