Somerville Brewing Company, which makes the local craft beer brand Slumbrew, opened its very own brewery and taproom over the weekend with a public, soft opening on Saturday, April 18. The Boynton Yards facility at 15 Ward St. is open from 11 a.m. - 11 p.m. today with lunch, dinner, snacks, Slumbrew beers, and the Marathon on TV. (It's in addition to the brand's outdoor beer garden American Fresh, which opened inside a heated tent at Assembly Row back in the fall.)
Slumbrew, maker of Flagraiser IPA, Porter Square Porter, Happy Sol, and other brews, will continue to produce its beer at Mercury Brewing in Ipswich, but the new brewery's capacity allows for 2,500 more barrels of small-batch and limited-run varieties, Dig Boston reports. Co-owner Caitlin Jewell said in a statement that Somerville Brewing Company wants its new location to be "a destination for all sorts of beer travelers."
In addition to beer, except to see charcuterie, cheeses, deconstructed Fluffernutter sandwiches, beer-inspired dishes like cheddar ale soup, and locally-produced products like Taza chocolates and Grillo's pickles.
The brewery and taproom is open Monday - Saturday from 11 a.m. - midnight, and from 11 a.m. - 8 p.m. on Sunday.
