Castle Island’s New Taproom Opens This Weekend

Castle Island BrewingNorwood’s very own Castle Island Brewing, a brewery which opened in late 2015, has happily announced that after many weeks of work, that their new and expanded taproom will be open to the public as early as this upcoming weekend.

The numerous upgrades will feature food options such as chips, salsa and guacamole as well as food truck options during the weekend evenings. But better yet is the increased capacity and seating, as they’ll now be able to host over a hundred people at the time in their welcoming taproom.

And best news yet is the fact that they’ll also now have up to sixteen draft lines for everyone to enjoy!

Here’s a preview of their newly upgraded taproom courtesy of Bostinno:

And if you’re wondering when you can start enjoying this taproom? How about tomorow starting at 11AM? Yes, that’s right. What are you all waiting for?

Castle Island Brewing is located at 31 Astor Avenue, Norwood, MA 02062.

Widowmaker Brewing Coming to Braintree This Summer

Some fresh, big news out of Braintree came out this week as we’ve gotten word that Widowmaker Brewing will be coming to town later this summer, probably sometime around August.

With their pouring permit and restaurant license now secured, their plans to open their 70-seat taproom is now moving forward and the brewery will have a kitchen on-site as well as a rotating list of food trucks.

They’re expected to be able to brew up to 7 barrels of beer at a time and want to try and rotate 6 to 8 beers on tap at any given time. Among their beers will be Greenbush, a pale ale; Sens Lives, a blonde; Old Oaken Farmhouse, a saison; Donut Shop, a coffee stout; Ecstasy of Gold, an IPA, and 50-Year Storm, a double IPA. They will also have additional recipes to fall back on.

The brewery will be located at 220 Wood Road, Braintree, MA 02184 in a building that they share with the retailer Pure Hockey.

While they don’t have any final dates in mind yet, they’re looking to open at some point in August if all goes to plan. Stay tuned for more updates.

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.

Brew Zone will be located at 135 Broadway, Saugus, MA, 01906.
