Have a look at:


Iron Duke Brewing is located at the Historic Ludlow Mills complex in Ludlow, Massachusetts. Our home, Stockhouse 122, sits directly along Chicopee River. Originally used to house jute back in the early 1900's, Stockhouse 122 has over 100 years of history within its brick walls.

IDB was started a mere stone throw away by a small group of close friends and family. It was during the spring of 2010 when we decided we wanted to make our dream of opening a brewery a reality.

Over the last 12 years, we have worked on perfecting our craft using a small nano system built from scratch in our garage. During that time, we have gathered an impressive collection of awards for wide variety of beer offerings.

What is Iron Duke?

People often ask, what is Iron Duke? In the literal sense, Iron Duke is an engine. It is an engine of small stature with very little horsepower. In the summer of 2004, the engine well over a decade old at that point, was put into a 1982 Jeep CJ 5. While most doubted it would even start, the engine lasted longer then anyone ever expected.

Iron Duke is more than an engine. It represents doing what on paper shouldn't be possible. It represents taking on a larger task than is sometimes even reasonable. It represents getting the job done no matter what it takes.

Our Mission

Iron Duke's mission is to produce high quality, handcrafted beer, and provide an inviting, friendly culture of hardworking individuals while maintaining an authentic and unique personality.
