Welcome to Double Down Brewing Company!


The circle of life has come to the Massachusetts craft beer scene as Peppercorn’s owner Tom Oliveri has brought in recent Wachusett Brewing President Christian McMahan to launch Double Down Brewing Company. The duo has had a successful history together. Oliveri

co-founded Wormtown in 2010 in the brewing space now occupied by Double Down and it quickly became a favorite in the local beer community. He brought in McMahan a few years in to
design their branding and packaging, including the iconic Be Hoppy

label among many others and helped catapult the brand to new heights.
Joining McMahan at Double Down as Head Brewer will be Brian Wells from highly regarded Left Hand Brewing Company in Longmont, Colorado.
“Tom and I have been friends for over 20 years” added Christian McMahan. When he reached out and asked if I would be interested in coming in and taking over this iconic space, I was thrilled. Then I met with Brian and it just felt like the right time to bring it all together”
McMahan concluded.
“I’m thrilled” said Brian Wells. “My passion to create world-class beers is what drives me and to have mentors like Tom and Christian who share my vision and have so much experience to help me bring it to life is like a dream come true” Wells added.
