Treehouse Brewing Company, one of Massachusetts' most popular breweries, announced Friday that it is purchasing the Tewksbury Country Club and will turn it into a beer hall while continuing to operate the golf course and various other amenities.
This will be the brewery's first Greater Boston location.
"Tree House Brewing Company is purchasing Tewksbury Country Club from Marc Ginsburg and family," the company said in a statement posted on its website. "In getting to know Marc and his team, and in learning the history of the Club, it was clear that they share the same passion for great experiences and the meticulous attention to detail that we do. We will carry on their legacy with the full vigor and enthusiasm of Tree House Brewing Company."
"We will evolve the space into an expansive and inviting beer hall and retail store and continue to operate the golf course and various amenities with the full strength of our crew behind it."
The company says it plans to hire 30 to 50 staff members to start, with additional opportunities likely in the future.
Tree House Brewing's original location opened in Charlton in 2011, but high demand led them to open additional facilities in Sandwich and Deerfield in recent years.
The owners of the Tewksbury Country Club had announced over Facebook that they had decided to sell the venue.
