DORCHESTER BREWING CO. is a partner brewing facility with a public Tap Room serving partner and in-house brews on tap in Boston, MA. DBco was created by a team of Boston professionals with an unnatural love of craft beer, to meet production demands for the local craft beer industry while supporting the economic development of Dorchester. We realized that there was a gap in the industry — and in Boston proper — for local, small to medium-sized craft beer brands and regional brewers to produce their product in a predictable, high-quality, cost-effective manner if they didn’t have their own large-scale brewery. So, naturally, we built an expensive, massive brewery with a pretty sweet tasting room so that others didn’t have to.
so why Dorchester?
Because it’s a great place to live, work and drink. Most of us at DBco live in DOT too. We realized that building a brewery in the heart of Boston could act as a catalyst to further build the community and bring manufacturing back to Dorchester. We see the contract brewery and new taproom as a gateway to one of the oldest and largest parts of our city.
In July 2016, DBco officially opened our doors on our state-of-the-art 25,000 sq. foot facility in Dorchester to provide craft brewers a turnkey opportunity to PRODUCE, PACKAGE (bottling, kegging and canning), STORE, SELL, MARKET and even TASTE their beers in our tap room. Currently, our 2,000 sq. foot tasting room is filled with in-house beers along with partner beers and collaboration brews on tap. Besides acting as a space for beer lovers to hang out, drink beer, play games and even work, our Tap Room is always hosting lots of events and private parties throughout the year!
