Our Tap Room

COVID 2020 Updates

Hi Friends,

Our top priority is the health and safety of our community, customers and employees. With the current state regulations and until further notice, we are open for to-go sales daily 11:30am-7:30pm for Crowlers and 4-Packs (as well as cider, wine, DBco merch, Toilet Paper, hand sanitizer, produce boxes and more!) and we can deliver curbside as well. We also offer delivery on Thursdays and Saturdays within an 8 mile radius of Boston.
You can submit your order ahead of time with our new to-go beer order form here.
Along with to-go beer, you can grab food from M&M BBQ and bring it home. We’ll continue to update the public as things unfold. As two local small businesses, we fully appreciate your support during this difficult time.
Please stay tuned for updates. We are working on a plan for when we can safely reopen and will have more information in June 2020.

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!
