A Woburn brewery with a sibling beer bar in Cambridge plans to add even more space for people to enjoy its beers. Lord Hobo Brewing Company received approval for a pouring license for its 5 Draper St. brewery in Woburn and will build out a beer hall and full bar in the facility, Boston Restaurant Talk reported.
The brewery announced these plans on Facebook, indicating that it would temporarily close the retail space during the buildout, but the finished space would accommodate 200 people, with room for the brewery to offer selections beyond its flagship beers that people will be able to enjoy onsite, in addition to taking growlers to go.
UPDATE… We’ve received site approval for a pouring license from Woburn. There are still some procedural steps that will take a few months, but at some point later this year, we will have a pouring license. The plan is to close down the retail room for a few months, install a 10 BBL Pilot system, install a kitchen, build a 200 seat beer hall, and build out a full bar. As you know, our background is building beer enthused restaurant spaces, so we are eager to build out a beer hall that will make us proud. The Pilot system will allow us to expand offerings beyond our core beers, which will be available for onsite consumption, and for growler fills to go. That system will also allow us to make more predictably scale-able recipes for our 40 BBL System. We are super stoked for this. We’ll keep you posted. As always, thank you for your support. Cheers!
Lord Hobo’s 47,000-square foot production facility in Woburn opened in June 2015, and its older beer bar in Cambridge offers a selection of Lord Hobo beers as well as a strong list of local and national craft beers.
