A new brewery in Hopkinton has hit the ground running, and its taps are now flowing with IPAs, pale ales, and stouts. Start Line Brewing unveiled its tasting room, located at Water Fresh Farm (151R Hayden Rowe St.), and it has a lineup of running-themed beers for guests to sample in two-ounce pours or to take home in 32-ounce crowlers or 64-ounce growlers.
Beers offered at Start Line include Honey Ritual, a pale ale; Night Run, a black IPA; and Home Stretch, a dark chocolate stout. The partnership between the brewery and the farm stretches beyond sharing an address: the hops used in Start Line’s beers were grown in hydroponic greenhouses at Water Fresh Farm, as previously reported. Right now, guests can eat Water Fresh’s sandwiches, soups, and more in Start Line’s tasting room, and the brewery will eventually have a license to pour pints and sample flights.
Start Line is open for samples and growler pours from 12 p.m. to 7 p.m. Wednesday to Friday and from 12 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturday and Sunday. It is closed Monday and Tuesday.
