Boston’s newest brewpub could open by the end of the year. Newton-based Hopsters began construction on its forthcoming Fort Point location and reportedly plans to open the doors in November, likely around Thanksgiving, as Boston Restaurant Talk reports. This will be a combination brewery and restaurant for Hopsters, which posted photos of the construction zone on Facebook.
The 51 Sleeper St. location will have enough space to accommodate brewing equipment, in addition to restaurant accoutrements, as previously reported. Additional social media posts indicate the brewpub is preparing barrel-aged beers for the November opening. Hopsters previously targeted a February 2017 opening date for the Fort Point location. In addition to its original location in Newton, Hopsters also operates Hopsters Alley, a 1,000-square-foot retail space inside of Boston Public Market.
The arrival of Hopsters will add variety to the forthcoming influx of taco- and tequila-centric restaurants in the neighborhood: Bartaco and Lolita Cocina & Tequila Bar both plan to open locations nearby, on Thompson Place and Summer Street, respectively.
