Great brewery, great vibe, great beer.

They've got about a dozen beers on, the hoppy stuff is worth driving for, the other styles are great too.

Staff is really down to earth. They allow outside food, even have recommendations on the menu.

website did not reflect the current offerings - two that I wanted weren't available, disappointing as they were my favorite styles

Went there for a few pours in mid-October 2019. Good live music, great on tap selection, and decent selection of beers to go. In the hidden gem of Hudson, the brewery is a fall foliage-filled car ride away from Boston. Definitely worth the visit.

Rockin' taproom! I was there on a Thursday evening and a joint was jumpin'. Deceivingly large taproom with L-shaped bar that seats 20-25 people with additional rail seating and a maybe a dozen tables spread about the place. Brewhouse is in the rear behind glass. A dozen assorted styles of craft on tap, the 2 I had were excellent. Service was pretty fast even though there was quite a crowd. The live music was very cool also.

I visited Hudson, MA over the weekend and decided to drop in to this brewery. Its location is very convenient and an easy walk from various parking locations off the main street. The place looks humble and like any storefront on the main drag. When you enter, you enter a surprisingly large space with a long, L-shaped bar area, a small area to one's right with a few tables, and then probably a dozen or so tables to one's right. Loud, alternative rock music played across the brewery. You could see the brewery behind glass near the end of the bar area.

I arrived early afternoon so I was really one of the few people in there. Even so, I was greeted happily by the two workers at the bar when I entered. I asked for a sampler flight where I ordered Activate! (Costa Rica), Ransom Note, Prosperous, and Contingency Plan. The bartender was extremely friendly to me and, if I did not bury myself in my phone, I probably could have had some good conversations with the workers.

Selection seemed pretty good. I forgot how much they had on tap, but it seemed like quite a large amount of tap lines for their beers. I did not order food, but they advertised that pretzels and cheeses could be served.

Overall, I really enjoyed the beers I had and I thought the bar atmosphere was welcoming and potentially sociable, especially at night I bet in the town of Hudson.

Cool spot in downtown Hudson. Typical bar on the side, brewery in the back set up, but very inviting as a tap room setting.

Service a tad slow since it was busy and only one server, but she was friendly enough (if not very helpful with describing the various IPA styles).

Tried a sampler of the hop-forward beers on tap at the time, was not disappointed. Many of them were representative of the new "New England" style of hazy juice bombs. Not something I look for all the time, but a nice treat.

Worth a stop if you're in the area.
