More Information

As craft breweries eye geographic and output expansions, the Fabrys focus on what brought consumers to the industry in the first place: high-quality beer. From 2016 to 2017, Craftroots was the fastest growing brewery in the entire country, going from 20 barrels to 308. Yet, instead of pursuing more growth, the Fabrys decided to keep their brewery small.

Maureen – the sole brewer – prefers small batches to keep the flavor exactly as she envisions it. Although Craftroots has taps at about a dozen restaurants, the married couple focuses on the experience at their Milford location, where Robin coordinates live music, fundraisers and exercise classes. The Fabrys are heavily involved in the Pink Boots Society, a women brewers organization whose Boston chapter is the world's largest.

Robin has some great stories to tell: I was a crime scene investigator for more than 20 years!

Maureen is a fool for huskies: One weekend, I drove 2,000 miles to adopt a puppy from a Siberian husky rescue in Indiana. I ended up adopting his mom, too!
