About the brewery

Dann and Martha (Holley)-Paquette brew Pretty Things beers. We are tenant brewers, meaning that we work in a rented brewery space, which we take over on brewdays. We do all the labor involved on each brewday, and our host brewery packages our beer for us.

Our flagship beer is Jack D’Or. Jack is the mournful grain of barley you can see to the left. He is the soul of beer, nature’s magician, creating sugar from starch and bringing together the Pretty Things to produce the substance we adore: beer.
