Some of the Boston breweries/venues you’ll visit:
Located in Chelsea, MA, Mystic Brewery stands out from the rest of American craft breweries in their method, beer, and experience. Specializing in the Saison style, a french farmhouse ale, Mystic Brewery’s brews won’t disappoint. Peer through their windows overlooking the tasting bar to see their square fermenters. Before the Germans introduced conical shaped fermenting vessels, square fermenters were common practice. We can’t wait to explain how Mystic Brewery’s founder Bryan Greenhagen designed his old world tasting room using reclaimed wood and metal from structures throughout New England.
Night Shift Brewing – Weekdays
A nocturnal brewery and taproom in Everett, MA. Night Shift Brewing is a nanobrewery known around town for their avant-garde brewing style. Ingredients such as habanero pepper and agave nectar in “Viva Habanera”, and rosemary and pink peppercorn in “Rose” sound more like something you’d find in 5-star kitchen than in a beer bottle.
MeadHall, located in the heart of Cambridge is truly a beer aficionados haven. With over 100 taps teeming with artisan craft beers from around the world, your beer guide will take you behind the scenes and explain how Meadhall gets your beer from its keg into your glass.
Boston Beer Works (Dinner)
Started in 1992, Boston Beer Works isn’t one of your typical chain brew-pubs. These guys brew everyday on premise and have over 15 rotating beers to choose from at any given time. Their incredible pizza dough is made from spent grain. Decked out with scads of TVs, which form a ring around the bar, this place is in a prime location for any evening out. What better place to learn how food pairs with beer than Boston Beer Works.
Founded in 1989 the Cambridge Brewing Company is the oldest brewery-restaurant (Brew-pub) in the Boston area. As pioneers of innovative American beer styles CBC offer their patrons a wide array of hand crafted original beers as well as their interpretation of classic world styles and experimental beers. Over the years CBC’s beers and brewers have received numerous awards locally, nationally, and internationally. Hence why we had to put them on this tour!
