Last June, news came to light that a mystery restaurant would open in Charlestown's Hayes Square, featuring a wood-fired oven, with John Paine (Sorriso, Les Zygomates) and Michael Cooney (The Publick House) behind the project. Now, Boston Magazine reports that it'll be called The Brewer's Fork, and it will be a beer garden with 24 beers on tap (especially Belgian and local craft brews), plus a reserve list of fancy beers. And that wood-fired oven? Yes, it'll be churning out pizzas that change seasonally. Other small plates will also be prepared in the oven, and most ingredients will be sourced locally.
The Brewer's Fork will open in the former Tuttles Professional Cleaners space, and the duo was specifically looking for something a little rustic and rundown, they told Boston Magazine, opting not to follow the trend of shiny, modern buildouts. They're currently shooting for a late summer opening.
