My personal favorite brewery, got to watch them grow as I have lived around the area for years. Very signature branding that is recognizable. Great distribution list and can be found in plenty of stores around the area. Wonderful community and very inviting. Service is always spectacular.

Went to the new Lovejoy Wharf location and was impressed. The layout is very cool and VERY different from their original Everett location. The food wasn't "destination" worthy on its own but it was perfectly good to accompany a beer-centric experience and reasonably priced for the area.

Beers are all $8 or $9 for full 16 oz. pours unless they were high ABV, and for a buck more you can get a 20 ounce pour. Sadly that's a pretty damn good price for Boston drinking. Best of all was that they have a ton of beers unique to that location - probably half the menu. Percentage wise it's a hoppy menu, but they have so many beers that there are still plenty of other options. They had a Vienna, a Pilsner, a couple farmhouse, 3 weisse's, a rye porter, and even a Dark Mild (which made me very happy) and an English Barley Wine.

Don't take my specific descriptors too seriously here as there was a lot going on. The short story is that everything was at least very good except the Pilsner.

Vienna: very good. Felt a bit like a crisper, brighter Sam Adams.

Dark Mild; very good though maybe just a touch thin.

NE DIPA: very good but they had a couple of them and I don't remember which one this was.

West Coast IPA: it wasn't labeled as such but that's basically what it was. The name had 'dank' in it and it was indeed that. Nice bitterness and older school look/body. Really good and a nice change of pace.

English Barley Wine: Excellent! Rich and raisiny and true to its name as it was not overly hoppy in the least.

NE Pale Ale: this was called 'Fuzzy Situation' and it may have knocked Whirpool off its pedestal as my wife's favorite beer of theirs. It's only a little boozier (5%) but it has a thicker body and citrusy rather than peachy flavor. Fantastic.

German Pilsner: this was the only clunker. It was only 3.5% ABV and basically tasted the way you might fear a pilsner that low would taste. Had kind of a harsh lemony hoppiness to it that had no richness or maltiness to back it up.

The patio isn't open yet but they said it should be within a couple weeks. Bar was packed when we got there at 6:00 and by 7:00 the dining areas were packed too. Great experience all around. They're going to make a mint here :slight_smile:

Setup right along the wharf, although with not much in way of a 'view' aside from overlooking the Police marina. The restaurant/store setup is quite unique, with a large, typical restaurant style to the left, and a small cafe for to-go coffee and to-go beer on the right. Inside is well lit, with large windows for natural lighting. The cafe feels intimate with a very typical cafe design for these days (white floors/walls, small pops of color). To-go beers are available in 4 packs, but are allowed to be broken up into singles or any combination. No comment on wait staff, as we just bought beer to-go. Selection was good, while spanning several IPAs, they also had a few lager varieties in addition to a couple stouts, including a barrel aged version, meaning consumers could pull for a variety of tastes.

Great place - slightly understaffed for a Friday. Friendly but also fairly loud. Still a place I will come back to whenever I can!

An excellent brewery near Boston - They have a great selection of beer, more stouts than anything, which I love. I will definitely be back!

Nice bright space friendly staff it was hot as blazes the day I was here but there was a good amount of inside seating. I have been told it is quite crowded on Saturdays but can't say for certain.

Visited on a Wednesday afternoon strictly for a can pickup. Even at about 3 PM it was pretty hopping. Really a fun vibe, had a small outdoor area too. The togo setup is great, they sell singles and were friendly with good service and a good selection. Really kept the line moving. I'm a fan of their hops, a little more traditional than the hazy stuff from Trill or TH, had one at the bar too.

Not my favorite joint- overcrowded with millennial hipsters, bartenders were douches and the beer is way overrated. Way better spots in Boston to hit.

I visited on a Saturday afternoon. The place is large and never seemed crowded. The room looks like a converted garage with concrete floors and an open ceiling. There are many long benches and smaller four-tops with hard seating.

The service is a walk up counter. Today, they offered 13 beers on tap with a wide range of styles. All of the beers were of superior quality.

A very consistent and pleasant brewery to visit. I've never had the pleasure of going through a tour, but I've always enjoyed my visits to the taproom and they do an incredible job creating a fun environment. There is always a healthy variety of beer selection, which I appreciate every time I get the chance to visit.
