About Us

Meet the Team

Gary Happ opened his first restaurant in Great Barrington in 1977. Originally from Long Island, NY, Gary has made the Berkshires his home for over 40 years. Now, the co-owner of the Barrington Brewery and Restaurant, Gary operates his new banquet facility with the help of Executive Chef, Odille Carpenter, and his daughter, Chelsea Huff. 

We use the finest local ingredients whenever possible and serve our local beer form the Barrington Brewery and Restaurant. Andrew Mankin, brewmaster, updates the beers seasonally and four taps are available at Crissey Farm's bar.

Our chef, Odille Carpenter, regularly updates the menu to reflect the bounty of the changing seasons. With an assortment of appetizers and entrees, we are certain there is something for everyone to enjoy year-round. 

Chef Odille is also a master baker and she and her team create elegant and delicious wedding cakes and desserts.
