I love this place!! First night in Boston and we just googled a brewer near us since we’re avid brewery goers and we’ve never been here and so thankful we found this place! Staff was so friendly and knowledgeable and just made the experience. Staff was super attentive and just straight awesome. Owner was here and made us feel at home! She was absolutely amazing! Many laughs were shared and she is what makes this community of craft brews what it is. This is a must visit and the first place I will come when I come back in to town because I support this local brewery and everything it embodies!

Such a great place. We went on a really busy Saturday, ordered a few flights and went back to our high top behind the wall of the bar. Sometime later, the bartender (who was actually the owner) came around to ask how we liked our beer. We mentioned how much we liked the Porter. She disappeared and moments reappeared with a taste of the other porter. Sometime later again, she came back to inquire about the other one. We, of course, loved the beer. As we were on our second round she came by again and we had all ordered full glasses of the porters. She was so excited that she went over and grabbed the last Porter T-shirt and gave it to us as a gift for just liking porter. Super nice and not overbearing. Really made our day! (Great beer helped, too!).

In from Arizona and visiting Boston. We stumbled upon this small brewery and instantly fell in love. They have a great beer selection, awesome atmosphere, and an INCREDIBLE owner. She showed me the back of the house and I’m just in awe. They truly stick to the microbrew and craft brew enthusiasts. This is a must visit place and I will definitely make this my first stop the next time I’m in Boston. From your average Joe to the beer connoisseurs, you’ll without a doubt be happy here!

Amazing food... Great beer... And awesome owner. Found this place randomly, as we were in town from Southern California, and decided to try, and it was fantastic! We have had over 1000 different beers and these are not like any others we have tried. Great gastro pub type food. Owner was super friendly and helped to make sure we definitely felt at home. Would go back again and again!

I don’t know where to start with this one... from the beer to the atmosphere to the bartenders to the owner, Caitlyn. AMAZING. We visited from way out of town and got A+++ service and recommendations for while we’re here in the Boston area. I cannot say that I have ever had so much hospitality come at me like this. They truly are amazing and just want you to enjoy their beers. This is a staple for me going forward for sure!

Did not have any food (although the menu seemed very expansive, especially for a brewery), so this is just based on the beer and service! Parking close...

Beers

Flagraiser IPA

IPA - American

Flagraiser IPA is a big, hoppy tribute to the unfurling of the Grand Union flag atop Prospect Hill in Somerville, MA on January 1, 1776. This ale celebrates our passion for hop aroma and flavor balanced with just the right amount of malt. Huge aroma and resin-y flavors from the elusive Galaxy hops are the signature of this beer. Built on a solid base of pale malts, this double IPA makes generous use of hops from Columbus, Crystal and Galaxy with the Galaxy hops taking the lead during ten days of aggressive dry-hopping.

ABV: 7.5, IBU: 80

Happy Sol

Hefeweizen

A refreshingly tart and crisp hefeweizen brewed with local MA wildflower honey, orange peel and coriander, and fermented with the juice from over 1,000 blood oranges. It’s a cloudy, yet effervescent beer, with lingering banana and citrus notes balanced against a healthy wheat backbone and hoppy finish from Mt. Hood and Crystal hops.

ABV: 5.5, IBU: 18

Porter Square Porter

Porter - American

Rich black porter with a unique blend of chocolate, coffee, roasted and nutty flavors. Brewed with cocoa powder and conditioned with cacao nibs from Taza Chocolate.

Attic & Eaves

Brown Ale - American

An autumn brown ale with distinctive toasty flavors from an assortment of roasted malts and grains.

A bright hop finish from Cascade and Fuggles balance the toasted grain notes to create a new expression of autumn brown ales.

Lobstah Killah

Red Ale - Imperial / Double

It wasn't always his temperament, but they were the ones ... the ones that went looking for him after all. Today is a new day. Lobstah Killah Imperial Red Ale is a special blend of Maris Otter and other malts balance a resiny mix of Columbus, Cascade and Simcoe hops. Our hoppy imperial red ale is the beer of choice for imperial decisions.

My Better Half

Cream Ale

LIMITED SEASONAL RELEASE! It's often said there is a better half responsible for making us whole, and so goes the inspiration for this ale. One half of the fermentation is cold lagered and the remaining half is finished as a warm ale fermentation. The result is a smooth and composed imperial cream ale well suited for contemplation.

ABV: 7.2, IBU: 21

Luma Luma

Slumbrew Snow Angel

IPA - Imperial / Double

How many hops are enough for an IPA? We think it's not just quantity, but the blend of varieties as we strive for hoppy delusions in this extremely limited release IPA for the lover of all things humulus lupulus. This beer is light golden in color from pilsner and caramel malts, with a cloudy haze from the addition of wheat. It's an unfiltered compilation of Nugget, Columbus, Zythos, Simcoe and a new experimental hop from the Pacific-Northwest referenced only by HBC-342.

Slumbrew Flower Envy

Saison / Farmhouse Ale

Summertime is for love, laughter and play, not envy. Never mind those luscious, long climbing vines of spicy, herbal hop cones over there. Sure there is a time for IPA, but today we will be content with smooth and floral Saison. Be happy. Brewed with Belgian aromatic malts, wheat and noble hops. Serve in a goblet or snifter at 45F for optimal enjoyment.

ABV: 6, IBU: 26

Slumbrew Naked Hopularity

IPA - Black / Cascadian Dark Ale

Hopheads go to great extremes in their lupulin quests. It's a worthy endeavor, but fraught with falling across the event horizon in a hoppy stupor. With swirling flavors from both dark malts and the crisp body from pilsner grains, our limited release black IPA will take you to the center of a hop explosion and back, without all the crushing gravity.

ABV: 8, IBU: 80

reviews: 1045

SeasonALE Creep

Saison / Farmhouse Ale

Meet Creep. Ever wonder who's responsible for seasonal beers popping up before their time? SeasonALE Creep thinks it's funny to release a pumpkin beer in August or a holiday ale in September. He's a greedy little character, robbing us of time and demanding we move on too soon. We'd be down on Creep, except he brought this refreshing Belgian-style saison brewed with light pilsner malts, wheat and galaxy hops.

ABV: 6, IBU: 0

Garde La Pêche

Sour - Ale

Garde La Pêche is refreshingly tart from the first sip with a round mouthfeel and increasing sweetness, many sun-ripened bushels of peaches per batch. A bright and refreshing pairing for a fine summer day.

ABV: 4.9, IBU: 0

reviews: 926

Sittin' On Hop Of The World

IPA - American

"You don’t like my peaches, don’t shake my tree. Get out of my orchard, let my peaches be." Our white IPA is a hybrid ale brewed with wheat malts and fermented with fresh peach puree. The aromatic essence of peach flavors combines with a world of hoppy goodness from Galena, Amarillo and Citra hops.
