About Us

Raquette River Brewing is located in Tupper Lake at the crossroads of the Adirondack Mountains in Northern New York State. The brewery was founded in 2013 by natives Mark Jessie and Joe Hockey. What began as just two friends brewing together in a garage with a $4,000 home brew kit quickly transformed into a dream. After mastering their skill, they decided to make their dream a reality and open the doors on Balsam Street. Raquette River Brewing was born from a passion for craft beer and brewing. Brewing on a small scale affords the opportunity to experiment and innovate with a variety of ingredients, some local, some exotic.

We believe that every batch of beer should be as unique as the people enjoying it. Your ideas for our future beers are always welcome. Cheers!
