Beer lovers, rejoice: A brewery opens its new taproom today in Everett, bringing even more beer to the already solid concentration of options in the city just north of Boston. Down the Road Beer Co. has been around for several years now, producing cans for sale around Greater Boston, and now it has a massive brewery and taproom space for guests to sample beers on site, as Boston Magazine reports.
The taproom (199 Ashland St.) opens on Friday, November 3, featuring dozens of draft lines, a wide array of classic arcade games, and a 35-foot bar, per BostInno. This has been a long time coming for Down the Road, which started shipping beer across the state in 2015.
The brewing arm of the operation has the capacity to produce 4,500 barrels per year, while the taproom can accommodate more than 200 people. Timed with the opening of the taproom, Down the Road has several new beers to roll out, including a Citra Pukwudgie (a take on one of its signature beers), a Peach Feyborn Berliner Weisse, and a Wolfgeist Dunkel Lager.
As for food, the brewery will have bar snacks on hand and will partner with the area’s food trucks, which will regularly park in front of the taproom.
“From the beer to the entertainment to the atmosphere, we aim to be your neighborhood watering hole no matter where you live,” founder and brewmaster Donovan Bailey wrote in a blog post on the brewery’s website.
The taproom opens at 5:30 p.m. today, and regular hours will be Tuesday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. and Sunday from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. Down the Road will be closed on Mondays.
