Visited their original tasting room years ago, and just stopped in for lunch at their "new" brewpub. They've got a contemporary-industrial German-style beer hall, meaning you sit at long tables with benches wherever space opens up -- sharing tables with your neighbors. You start by ordering your first round at the bar and opening a tab, and from there order food and additional beers from servers who attend the tables frequently. The service was friendly and speedy enough. They had literally 30 beers on tap, when you add in all the variants, as well as their tap-only sour series. They offer sample sizes on most -- and you can fill out your own flight cards both at the bar and the tables. The menu consists of wood-oven pizzas, which were pretty tasty, as well as a few salads and other offerings. Seems like it can get a bit crowded, but I arrived right before the rush and enjoyed it immensely. Kids allowed. Separate section for growlers, bottles and what not.

Awesome space - lots of square footage, high ceilings, ample picnic-table seating, large bar in the middle and retail space out front. Grab your seat, order food from the friendly staff and order and pick up beers from the bar. Flights are the way to go. When I visited there was Kiwi Rising, Triple Hopped Kiwi Rising, BA Framinghammer and a few variants amongst many others. Food was great, vibe was cheery and the beer was on point.

The new place is huuuuge. Big bar with a ton on tap. The food menu has a lot of options on it as well.

Great new beer hall. This is now easily the best brew pub in Mass. Better than Harpoon. Better beer and much better food. Food is really well executed. The service process is a bit different - have to check in at the bar and start a tab and then take a seat and flag down the server. But it seems to work. A must visit!
