Welcome to Dalesmen Distillery & Brewery

Steeped in whisky history, Bedford, PA is an idyllic location for the Dalesmen Distillery & Brewery to create artisan whisky, spirits, and ales. 

Inspired by their passion, life experiences, the Whisky Rebellion and the original Scottish settlers of Raystown which is now Bedford, the co-founders of Dalesmen Distillery & Brewery are excited to open their doors in 2020!

We look forward to creating a unique space where you can enjoy our hand crafted beverages. With plans for a tap room and event spaces allowing you to see the brewing and distillation equipment that made your drink while enjoying the company of those around you. Tours will also be available so you can learn the process of how we make our products and you won't go home empty handed as we will finish each tour with a taste or two!
