Stop #333 on my world brewery tour.

This place has been around for a while, I can't believe it's me who is doing the first review.

Located in an industrial-meets-residential area a couple blocks east of downtown and slightly southeast of the Mass Ave neighborhood/retail area. Not much to look at from the outside and one could miss it if not carefully paying attention as it sits past the parking lot.

This was my second attempt at Saturday tasting hours. The first time they did not let this 39-year-old in without an ID. State law that everyone gets carded or no entry. My bad.

This time I was a bit pressed for time and I promised the wife I would be in and out in less than 20 minutes (did it in 15).

The taproom hours are mostly to buy beer and growler fills. While they have tables, I think all of them were the standing variety so it's not really a place to hang out as much as it is to sample, purchase, and move on.

You get (free) tokens to sample the beers. I think I got two for specialty beer and three for regular beer. I went with the milk porter specialty and sink the clipper which was an imperial ESB. The beer I enjoyed most was a scottish ale and I picked up a four pack of that. A fine malty brew.

They had lots of people pouring the beers and being one to make judgements, based on brewery workers I've seen, this was mostly not people who worked in the brewery so I didn't make much of an effort to ask pesky pretentious beer snob questions. Plus, I had to get in and get out as quickly as possible. It is nice that the tasting room is surrounded by the brewery so one could easily look around for a self guided tour.
