Visit our beautiful taproom, featuring our four-season Rooftop Greenhouse and outdoor roof deck, as well as in-house barbecue from our friends at M&M Barbecue, Game Room (with skeeball, pinball, arcade games, pop-a-shot, and tabletop shuffleboard) and so much more.
We offer more than your typical tasting room in a brewery – and have options for all drinkers including 20 tap lines with great, fresh beer, hard cider, hard slushies, seltzers, wine, cider, and non-alcoholic options. Sample a tasting flight or grab a full pour and take some fresh beer to go! Along with fresh craft beer, we also serve cider and 4 different wine varieties!
Our Boston Tap Room has plenty for all – games (Skee-ball or Pinball, anyone?), wi-fi, a 4-season Rooftop Hopservatory overlooking the Boston skyline with a beautiful seasonal outdoor patio both on the rooftop and the first floor, food from M&M BBQ, fresh beer to-go and of course plenty of fresh merch to wear out the door and rep your favorite brewery around town.

PLEASE NOTE: While the front of our building is having work done, we unfortunately (and temporarily!) cannot host dogs on our first floor patio, as it is closed. We look forward to welcoming all doggos and puppers back to our dog-friendly space just as soon as we can when construction is done – please stay tuned to our social media and this page for updates!
