    The designs for your beer labels are always so consistent yet unique. They are both clean and colorful with intricate artwork and a minimalist aesthetic. Could you tell us more about your design process and what goes into deciding the name and art for your beers?

    Is it true that all the founders went to brewing school together? I'm lucky to be near you guys and every beer I've had has been on point. Consistently great beer.

    I love the name. How hard is it to think of beer names that have not been used before?

    Not a question just showing the love..I hit lamp i think when you guys were just about a year open and the tap room was the best. Then ended up getting engaged to a woman who lived a street over in Central Sq and you guys became second home. Rabbit Rabbit is a go to now.

    Great beer! Have you ever tried sitting backwards on the toilet and using the back of the toilet as a little table for your beer?

    First, love your beer and great taproom. There was a bit of shade thrown at hazy, New England style IPAs in the first session, so, can you tell our lovely hosts why NE IPAs are so delicious!

    Their Major Tom Galaxy IPA label - the one with the dark blue background, a bunch of stars, and a tiny cat silhouette, is my favorite from them.

    Great tasting beer, hits some great tropical notes and nice orange ending. For being a double this is super crushable. I noticed that the beer poured out clearer then most NE is this your normal style or did you clear this one up a bit more?

    I love how long the aftertaste lasts on the tongue once taking a sip. Not many can do that.

    Native from Jamaica Plain here, but love what’s going on in the brewery scene in Cambridge right now. Rabbit rabbit is one of my favorite runs going.

    What other brewery’s have you scene pop up in your neighborhood, and if you had to choose between native and western which would you choose?

    This is great. How do you keep the salt in the Cambridge water from ruining the beer?

    Much clearer than the previous hazies ... what's the difference?

    And is "Rabbit. Rabbit" for Updike-country?

    I was really hoping Lamplighter was an ice hockey reference. Lighting the lamp is an expression for scoring a goal...

    Idaho 7 is pretty widely available! Check out Crosby Hops to get a sample.
    Hop I'd like to try: Talus
    Woof. Worst concoction? It's a good story, come on down to the taproom when we open and I'll tell you about it.
  34. tylahfitz

    tylahfitz Initiate (0) Jan 22, 2011 Massachusetts

    Very. but it all depends on how it's been used and where the name comes from. Copyright law is a nightmare.

    We have a beer for sale right now called Little Light -- that was aged in one of our foeders (sorry for my spelling, it's just how I'm used to doing it) with a more 'american sour' mixed-culture blend. It was further aged on black raspberries and marionberries to balance out the acidity and add some fruity complexity.

    Keep an eye out for another batch of Rhapsody coming out soon, it's a mixed-culture sour we've made a few different versions of, and that foeder is really hitting it's stride right now. This batch coming soon was aged on apricots.
