Bone Up Brewing Company has missed its "hilariously improbable" goal of opening in June, but the ABCC has just granted the future Everett brewery its Massachusetts Brewers Permit, according to a new blog post from the Bone Up team. This leaves only a few other pieces that have to fall into place — the completion of renovations, inspections, and finally, town approval.
When Bone Up Brewing Company opens, expected American-style beers brewed in a Belgian-inspired manner. The team has been working on a variety of test batches, including a "robust" porter called Shut Up Kelly (named for a friend who keeps talking about how she didn't like dark beers until she tried theirs) and a "premium" cream ale called Extra Naked. Skeleton-filled label sketches for the latter can be found in today's blog post.
