Edgartown selectmen rejected a request from Bad Martha’s to extend hours for the Upper Main Street brewery and tasting room after a short public hearing during their regular Monday meeting.


The first 10 per cent of the profits from beer sales at Bad Martha Farmer's Brewery opening on Saturday will be donated to the Island Food Pantry — evidently not such a Bad Martha after all.

The craft beer company Bad Martha Brewery is planning a microbrewery and retail space on part of Donaroma’s Nursery on Upper Main street. The beer company was started last spring by Jonathan Blum and Peter Rosbeck.


Move over Martha, there’s a new gal in town: Bad Martha, a new craft beer company. The company is premiering two beers this month in Island package stores and restaurants, a summer ale and an extra special pale ale. Beer will be available for tasting at the Martha’s Vineyard Preservation Trust annual Taste of the Vineyard Stroll on Thursday night.

There’s a new beer in town. Bad Martha Beer, created by seasonal resident Jonathan Blum, will debut in select bars, restaurants and liquor stores this week. The company has launched with two ales, the seasonal Vineyard Summer Ale, made with Saaz hops, Pilsner malt and Bartlett pear aromatics, and the flagship Martha’s Vineyard Ale, made with English malt and English and American hops. Both are brewed with Martha’s Vineyard grape leaves, and will be available in six-packs and kegs.
