Dorchester Brewing


Festivus for the Rest of Us

A Festivus for the rest of us. Come one and all on Saturday, December 22nd for a traditional Festivus Celebration at Dorchester Brewing Company centered around the Festivus Pole. And of course, an official airing of the grievances will take place, so come ready to share your grievances and we’ll be shouting them from the top of the brewhouse for all to hear!

Beer Release: We’re releasing our Dorchestivus beer, a German Starkbier traditionally brewed for the holidays.  Dominant malt flavors with some candied fruit notes.  Noticeable alcohol.  The German equivalent of English Barleywine.  Perfect for feats of strength and airing of grievances!

Airing of the Grievances: 2-5pm. Yell your grievance into the brewery!

Melt Food Truck: 2-8pm. Poutine and cheesy sandwiches for days, paired perfectly with our fresh craft beer.

Boston Brew Tours: 12-6pm. Boston Brew Tours will be on-site offering awesome brew tour discounts, swag, free tickets and more!



30-Barrel Brewhouse Celebration

As of the past few months, we’ve been brewing on our 5-barrel brewhouse, but now we’re excited to unveil our newest addition to Dorchester Brewing Company, a brand-spankin’ new 30-barrel 4-vessel brewhouse (that we’ve been waiting on for over a year)! To celebrate the commissioning of this new beast, we’re hosting a party (per usual!). Join us on Saturday, October 1st throughout the day for the festivities! We’re open from 11:30am-11pm if you want to get a good view of the new brewhouse. From 12pm-5pm, we’ll be hosting virtual tours every hour on the hour from our very own Matt Malloy! And, we’ll be giving out free pretzels as well as donuts from our favorite Polish bakery in Dorchester, DJ’s starting at 1pm until they last!
