Blue Hills Brewery was established in May 2008 by Andris Veidis and Peter Augis. Veidis has been brewing since 1994, and has worked previously at Harpoon Brewery, and several other American breweries, including Boston Beer Works. Augis' background is in construction and architecture and designed the beer taps and the bar in the tasting area, which is shaped like a pilsner glass. Nine months after it was established, the brewery opened on January 15, 2009. Since then, the brewery has grown quickly: it sold 675 barrels of beer in 2009, 800 in the first 6 months of 2010, and according to the article in the Patriot Ledger: "...is potentially on track to sell 1,800 barrels in 2010". When they opened they were brewing an Extra pale ale, and an IPA. They currently brew six regular beers, and have several seasonal options.
