Aeronaut Brewing Company, Somerville's first brewery since the 19th century, officially opens on June 21 — although if you don't already have tickets to the all-day party, you'll have to wait for another day, because the festivities are already sold out.
What started as a home-brewing project dubbed TBD Brewing has grown into a self-described "craft brewery and urban farmhouse" where "brewers and scientists collaborate with New England farmers and food makers to drive the invention of craft beers and spur a renaissance of local victuals and industrial revitalization." Aeronaut leases some of its space to other local companies in the food and drink sphere, including Something GUD, a home delivery service that brings customers goods from farms and local producers, barismo, a coffee roaster that began in Arlington, and Somerville Chocolate (what it sounds like).
Aeronaut has hosted a number of open houses leading up to its grand opening, and it has already racked up a small handful of reviews on BeerAdvocate. The debut roster of beers includes Armadillo, an American IPA; Lagerfeuer, a Rauchbier; and more. Stay tuned for tasting hours.
