Brew Zone To Open Soon in Saugus

Brew ZoneFirst reported by Hidden Boston earlier today, it appears that Saugus will soon be the home to Brew Zone, a new business which will allow people to brew their own beers.

We reached out to the owner Jim and were able to get a bit more information including the fact that they’ll open with six brew stations available to patrons and they’ll start with upwards of sixty different recipes that people can choose from. There will however not be any food, bar or alcohol sales. The establishment is targeting the end of the month for their opening.

As always stay tuned for further updates.

Barleycorn’s to Close in Early May

Well folks, today is a sad day. Sad because after nearly twenty years in business, Natick’s very own Barleycorn’s have announced that they’ll be closing in early May per a Facebook post they shared earlier today.

In the post, Barleycorn owner Dan stated the following:

After almost 20 years in business, we regret to announce the closing of Barleycorn’s Craft Brew.

Our lease is expiring and a decision has been made to liquidate and conclude our operations of providing beer brewing and wine making services to the greater Boston community. It has been an extraordinary experience and a great run, with tremendous people and organizations.

Normal operations will continue until the beginning of May, so there is still time to get your final brews in with us here at Barleycorn’s. The final date for brewing will be April 16th with a final bottling date of April 30th. Homebrew supplies are still available as well.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank all of our customers through these past two decades.

Barleycorn is located at 21 Summer St, Natick, MA 01760.
