Andover, MA 01810 – Ozzy Properties, Inc. announces the first tenant for the newly renovated RiverBend Mill at Dundee Park.  Oak & Iron Brewing® Co., a new American Microbrewery.

Oak & Iron Brewing® Co. was founded by Jim Cass and John Helferich, two former business colleagues and longtime friends who conspired to transform their passion for great beer into a small yet mighty American craft brewery. They envisioned a brewery that captured the New England spirit: independent, innovative, and a little bit rugged. “We dreamed of creating flavorful, handcrafted beers and a great social experience for the people in our community,” says Cass, who along with Helferich, has deep roots in Massachusetts.

Opening in early 2017, Oak & Iron will brew time-honored classics and New England-inspired seasonals in small, artisanal batches right on site. Locals will enjoy the casual, convivial brewery taproom, and have the opportunity to pick up a growler to take home. The business also plans to distribute kegs to local restaurants and bars.

“We are thrilled to welcome our first new tenant to this building.  Oak and Iron Brewing Co. is an exciting venture and a terrific asset to the Dundee Park Mill complex”, says Ellen Keller, VP – Commercial Real Estate, Ozzy Properties, Inc.

The RiverBend Mill at Dundee Park offers nearly 20,000 square feet of space along 950 feet of frontage on the Shawsheen River in Andover MA.  The building boasts a classic red brick exterior, granite sills, post and beam construction with lofty exposed ceilings, oversized windows and, most notably, expansive river views.  The site is conveniently located in the center of Andover, within easy walking distance of the historic downtown shopping area and commuter rail station.  In addition, the owners are also the developers of the Dundee Park Office complex directly across the Shawsheen River allowing for contiguous access to this commercial complex.
