Enjoy the casual atmosphere of Stepping Stones Museum for Children, delicious Home Slice Pizza, and of course, sensational Spiked Seltzer!  

Nick Shields knows beverages. Nick’s first job after college was managing production for Nantucket Nectars, a thriving, upstart juice company in Boston, and continued that entrepreneurial experience with winemaking at Wolffer Estate on Long Island. He went on to study food science at Cornell University, fermentation science at UC Davis, and even developed products for beverage titans Pepsi and Cadbury Schweppes. Nick’s great-great-grandfather, Rudolph Haffenreffer, founded Boston’s Haffenreffer Brewery in 1870. As a 5th-generation brewer, Nick always knew he would eventually return to the family business of brewing. His goal? To create a new kind of beverage by combining disciplines of brewing, winemaking, and natural flavors. After refining nearly 100 batches, Spiked Seltzer was born.
