Have you tried Bad Martha beer and ale? The Bad Martha Brewing Company launched its first products last summer and is now planning a brewpub and retail shop in Edgartown, according to the Vineyard Gazette, which reports that the company has received approval to build a facility on the Donaroma's campus on Upper Main Street.

Who's behind the brew pub? Here's what Bad Martha Brewing Company posted on Patch last summer:

"Bad Martha beer is brewed by Bad Martha Brewing Company, a new island-based venture owned by Jonathan Blum, a 20+ year seasonal resident of the island and Peter Rosbeck, a long-time island resident. Blum’s plan for Bad Martha is to not only create an excellent craft beer, but also a business centered around socially responsible practices. 

Product Mission: To make and sell the finest quality handcrafted beers made by caring employees who share a commitment to incorporate wholesome, fresh ingredients while promoting business practices that respect the community.

Social Mission: To operate the Company in a socially responsible way, by first sharing a portion of beverage profits with local hunger relief charities and employees before rewarding its investors. 

Economic Mission: To aggressively grow sales and profits to achieve a triple bottom line - one that will financially benefit community charities, reward employees and maximize shareholder return. 

Company Motto: Get Bad. Do Good.  Drink Responsibly."

Jonathan Blum's family is also behind the refurbishing of the Edgartown Lighthouse. They're good neighbors and good folks - and the beer is good, too!

Are they going to be brewing in Edgartown? It is my understanding that the beer is brewed at Mercury in Ipswich.

The Edgartown operation will be a microbrewery, according to the article. They'll keep manufacturing in Ipswich. I do hope we'll be able to get growlers, though, as well as be served in the pub.
