Watertown's  Craft Brewery

Located in Upstate New York, Boots Brewing Company is a small scale Craft Brewery and Tap-Room.

Boots Brewing Company will open for business soon, we promise.... but, due to the fact that we occupy a space inside the historic Lincoln Building in downtown Watertown, NY our renovations have been anything but easy.  That being said we are in the home stretch and will open our doors and tap the first beers within the next few months.

Please check back for updates in our News section, or stop by if someone is there,  to see our progress as we get closer to opening our doors.  CHEERS!!!

Every Pint Tells a Story...


 

 

Every Pint Tells a Story...


 

 

Experiences serve to shape lives. So, when thinking of what to name our brewery, and our beers, we thought of different life experiences.  We thought of various travels, former professions, and most importantly friendships. Boots, of differing forms, were usually a common and basic necessity in many of those experiences.

Most people who work hard know the value of a well made pair of boots.  And over the years we have worn our fair share, from sandy deserts, arctic tundras, and jungles both literal and urban there is no substitute for a well crafted and properly selected pair of boots.

The same things can be said for beer.  And during our travels far and wide we've shared some great beers with some amazing people in sometimes very unexpected places.

The boots worn, the people met, far off destinations and occupations and are all represented in some way in our beers.  So find one of our beers that fits you, and enjoy the experience.

Cheers!!!

Our Team


Daniel Daugherty

Co- Founder/Brewing Manager

Well traveled, thanks in part to growing up as an Army brat, time spent playing collegiate rugby for Norwich University, and then his own time spent in the U.S. Marine Corps, Dan learned long ago that there is a lot to be learned from travel and experiencing new cultures.  He also learned that there are few things more important than a good pair of boots, and a good beer at the end of a hard days work.  After working for years piecing together the idea and recipes for Boots Brewing Co. he was able to convince his wife (Kelly) that this was somthing they should pursue.

Kelly Daugherty

Co-Founder/Business Manager

Kelly, being the more grounded and rational of the two, took some time to be won over on the idea of starting a brewery.  Especially since she didn't drink beer!!!  While studying to be an Occupational Therapist she went to school in NY's Finger Lakes wine region and had experienced an area that had a vibrant craft beverage culture and knew that there was an opportunity to expand that culture in her native Upstate NY.  After years of listening to and helping shape the business plan written by Dan she finally gave her thumbs up and the rest is history.  (She does drink beer now with a preference towards sours.)
