I've been to Slumbrew 4-5 times and every time I think how much I wish it were closer and went more often. Really cool place with a nice menu of food and of course their great beers.

I've been there both when it's packed and when it's quiet and there is always great service and really helpful people working. Their Flagraiser IPA and their Tripel Trekker are great beers, they have a bunch more recently added that I look forward to trying.
They seem to have lots of different events from trivia, dog treat making, music, and more.

Great place!

Somerville Brewing (Slumbrew) is a great place to hang with friends and enjoy some quality beers. Open for just over a year (though brewing for much longer), the taproom offers tours, an extensive menu, and a varying beer board. They have experimental drafts available at the brewery only, which makes it a draw to go and visit! I've happily killed a few hours there early evening enjoying some of my favorites "trekker tripel" and "Island day IPA". The bar can get crowded around tour time, but once the crowd is out on tour it relaxes yet again.

Small factory type setting with a few tables and small bar.

Hipsters on both sides of the bar (it's Somerville after all), which automatically makes it not a real happy place. Service was courteous and friendly enough, though.

Only 5 beers on tap. Strange, I thought there would've been more going to the source itself.....

Beers I had were in good shape, though pricey for what they were. IIRC most beers $7+ for 13-oz or less pours.

Glad I visited but probably won't return. Their taproom in Assembly Sq has a more fun vibe and the same beer, so I'd rather go there instead if I was hankering for some Slumbrew beer.

Love this place! Near impossible to find but worth the effort! Tried four different beers, all of which are top quality, however the black IPA (naked hopularity) to me was the differentiator.,.outstanding!

Great food and great service, my new "go to" place,
