With small family business roots in Canada and Vermont, twin brothers Cedric and Peter naturally fell into the same in their twenties after working entry-level jobs in the Boston area. In 2004, they started Boston Barrel & Tap, a draft beverage service business. Working nights and weekends on top of their day jobs, they eventually started working with a few small breweries in Eastern MA, including Concord Brewery, then based in Lowell, MA and under its third ownership group at the time. When an opportunity arose, the brothers became the fourth owners, seizing an opportunity to continue in small business and sustain an established and respected portfolio of recipes, eventually expanding it to include new beers.
