Decided to check this place out after hearing a lot about it. Its a VERY small brewery that puts out some big tasting beers. I only tired 2 of their IPA's, and was greatly impressed with both. They put out that sought after "hazy" juice bomb of an IPA that I have come to enjoy. Highly recommend checking this place out if you are in the area. The staff was very laid back, and quite nice.

This is my local brewery, and I stop at on a weekly basis. It's just a small taproom with outside tables on a parking lot, so don't expect a fancy build-out. What it is is a great place to stop by, see some regulars, get good beer, and maybe hang out with your dog and some friends for a pint. The IPAs are the stars, but they do have some variety beyond that. Check their Facebook page for today's tap list.

This is a neat little place in my town. Very friendly folks. Tried few of their selections and liked it.

You really can't beat getting a nice chilled beer straight from the source. It also helps that some of the best experiences I've had at any brewery have been at Cold Harbor. The atmosphere is typically great with people hanging out chatting with each other and the staff seem super passionate about what they do, as evident by their excitement when seeing a new face walk through the door.
As for the beer, I give very high marks on pretty much everything I've tried. They have a great selection and frequently rotate the menu just to give regulars a bit of variety, however, I do believe they have a solid selection of 4 or 5 year round beers just in case you want consistency.
Just as a side note, my favorite has to be their coffee oatmeal stout.

A great hidden gem in Westborough, MA, almost like you found it by chance as it's hidden off the main road. Outstanding selection on tap at any given time, about 9-11 different beers on, which is very impressive for such a young brewery. Good creativity with their ingredients, which is always great to see. The quality of the beer is also top notch, which will keep me coming back.

My second visit, both just for growler fills so I didn't hang out. But the kind of place I really love. The folks tending bar and filling growlers were super friendly and just seemed to be enjoying their job. A lot to be said for that.

You can taste for free or buy a pint for $5-6. A jolly crowd this afternoon (hey, who isn't jolly when drinking fresh ale straight from the source?) I've now had growlers of Piccadilly English Ale and Cold Harbor Indian Summer IPA, and sampled a coupla others. Excellent brew and well worth a visit.
