Our Tap Room

COVID 2020 Updates

Hi Friends,

We are are happy to announce that our Outdoor and Rooftop Patios and Indoor seating are now open for DBco beer and food from M&M BBQ. We will be accepting reservations and also open for walk-in guests as space permits (Check our Capacity Counter on the main home page).

Due to Governor Baker’s recent announcement, when you visit DBco you must purchase food to have or to share with your party. Drinks cannot be served unless food is purchased. This applies to just the first round of beers ordered and food does NOT need to be purchased with every round of beers. Thankfully, you have some really delicious food options to enjoy here with us from M & M BBQ!

Our top priority is the health and safety of our community, customers and employees, so please rest assured we are taking extra precautions to ensure a clean and healthy environment for you to enjoy your beer. We will also be open for pickup and delivery on a daily basis, so please continue to drink that beer!

A few Things to Keep in Mind When Visiting:

1. Reservations are not required, but keep in mind we do have limited seating. More info to make your reservation here.

2. Please check our homepage for current capacity counter to see if we have space. This will be updated every 10 minutes during business hours.

3. Please bring your smart phone. That is how you will order beer, cider, wine and food, to ensure safe social distancing.

4. Please bring a mask.  You need to wear one at all times except when sitting down.

5. Parties are limited to no more than 6 people per table and you all must have a seat and be sitting down. You can’t drink and stand by law.

6. Our bar staff will be bringing your drink order to your table – you order online and we hoof it to your table. (Please tip them well. We’re trying really hard.)

7. While we do prefer credit/debit/Apple Pay or google pay to reduce human interaction, we will still accept cash and you can go inside to order.

8. Please keep buying to go beer and merch for pickup and delivery. At these occupancy numbers we still are against the ropes in a big way.

Valid forms of ID include: US Driver’s License, Liquor ID Card or State Issued ID Card, Military ID, US Passport or Passport Card and International Passport and Foreign driver’s license with a photo of a corresponding passport. We invite those under 21, such as families, kids and babies to visit our taproom with parents or guardians and enjoy games, our non-alcoholic beverages (soda and seltzer) and food any day of the week. After 6pm on Fridays and Saturdays you must be 21+ to visit.

Brewery Tours: Tours are currently not running due to COVID.

Food: M&M BBQ is on-site daily. We do not allow outside food to be brought in. We do, however, allow cakes & cupcakes on-site for reservations with approval from the Event Manager.

Fresh Beer to Go: We sell Crowlers (32 ounce cans) to go as well as a limited supply of 4-Packs of select DBco beers. Unfortunately, by law we cannot fill growlers.  Additionally, due to tax law, you can not consume Crowlers on premise. No external alcoholic beverages may be brought in and consumed on site.

Private Events: We are excited to host your next private event whether it be a small group meeting, fundraiser, birthday party or wedding! To learn more about hosting your private event with us, please send us a note through our contact us page.

Getting here: We are located at 1250 Mass Ave. in Dorchester. There is typically plenty of on-street parking (no meters). If you are planning to take public transportation, we are located on the red line between Andrew and JFK/UMass stops and also close to several bus stops. Please visit  // to find your best route. We have plenty of FREE on-street parking, so there is typically plenty of room for everyone nearby!

Pets: We are dog friendly outside on our patio and also look for our Yappy Hours during the summer months. (Check our event page)



Dorchester: Never been to the DOT? Not OFD? (That’s lingo for Originally From Dorchester). Technically Dorchester is part of Boston proper and located super-close to downtown, so you have no excuses. This could be be the very reason you explore the city a little bit more and we’re certain you’ll be glad you did.



Come hang out in our Boston taproom, Hopservatory and outdoor and rooftop patios. We have a 20 line tap system with plenty of varieties to choose from so you can sample and taste new craft beers and chat with our Head Brewer about his recipes. We also serve cider and wine!



As you might expect, we have a ton of ongoing activities in our Boston brewery that are all things beer-related. From fresh beer launches, festivals and plenty of fun events for everyone, we’ve got you covered. Contact us for private beer events like weddings, birthday parties and more!
