Down The Road Brewing’s Grand Opening Happening Friday

Down the Road Beer Co.Everett-based Down the Road Brewing will finally be opening up their brand new taproom this upcoming Friday after months of work. This is years in the making and a lot of their beers have been available in and around Boston for a quite a while now, including their flagship pale ale known as ‘Pukwudgie‘ which has been around since March of 2015.

The 12,000 square foot place will have a sizable, 2,500 square foot taproom with an equally sizable brewhouse of 30-bbl which leaves them with additional room to expand into. And much like their neighbors from Bone Up and Night Shift, they will also have plenty of snacks available as well as a robust list of food trucks that will be coming and going.

No crowlers or growlers will be available but they will have 4-packs of cans available. Their tap list for their grand opening features the following beers:

Golden City New England IPA
Spring Heel Jack London Porter
Rasenmaher Kolsch
Reynard’s Witbier
Seventh Star IPA
Dreamtime New England IPA
Peach Feyborn Berliner Weisse
Wolfgeist Dunkel Lager
Hooligan Nut Brown Ale
Pukwudgie
Henzelmann’s Festbier

The brewery’s grand opening will be happening Friday at 5:30PM and both Penny Packers and Roadies Diner will be the food trucks for the event. You can find out more about the event on their Facebook event page by clicking here.

After the opening shenanigans are over, their regular hours will be Tuesday to Saturday, 11 am to 11 pm and Sunday 11 am to 6 pm. They will be closed on Mondays.

Down the Road Brewing is located at 199 Ashland St, Everett, MA 02149.

Backlash Opens Up Retail Space, Brewery Buildout To Follow

Backlash Beer CoBacklash Beer Co., which has been around since 2013 and more recently has been contract-brewing out of Dorchester Brewing Company has now opened up a retail space where their beers will be going on sale. This comes nearly a year after their GoFundMe campaign got crowdfunded online and appears to be the beginning of what will eventually become a fully built out brewery with a taproom.

The brewery had not always been in the Boston area and had previously been brewing out in Holyoke but they’re now here to stay at their location over at 152 Hampden Street in Boston. And while the retail space is relatively limited right now they will be open today from 12 to 6PM selling cans of Hostile Takeover and Central Square, the third IPA in their Stomping Ground series.

No word yet on if these retail hours will happen past this weekend as they’re presently building out the brewery. Tanks are scheduled to arrive shortly before Thanksgiving and but we’ll keep you posted should they happen. Either way, these guys should be up and running in early 2018 in their new Roxbury home.

Backlash Beer Company’s retail space is located at 152 Hampden St, Roxbury, MA 02119.
