Who We Are

Who We Are

At Riverwalk, we are 100% family, community, and employee owned.

Riverwalk was founded in 2012 by Steve and Betsy Sanderson, as they sought to share their love of worldly beer with the local community. 

From a sub-leased basement and a “growler only” business model, the brewery has grown into a state-of-the-art production facility and taproom in Newburyport.

Hell yes we have a rocking taproom!

But at our core we are a brewery and there is so much more behind the Riverwalk brand: quality, climate-sustaining ingredients, the communities we support and who rally behind us, and our beloved employees who make us who we are.

Our owners, brewers, bartenders, and chefs all work together under one roof.

Our brewery houses all of our production, taproom, and offices. We don’t have an overseas corporate owner or a private equity group calling the shots for us—every decision we make is ours, and our community of fans, partners, retailers, and distributors help guide us every step of the way.
