Hailing from Everett, we have been carrying Down the Road since they first started brewing beer.  Over the last few years, these guys have kept on chugging along and producing ales and lagers that have earned a good amount of buzz in this beer world of ours.  It has been a while since we have had them come in to pour their offerings so we’re gunna change that.  Mike from Down the Road will be here tasting beers like Seventh Star IPA, Pukwudgie Pale Ale, Springheel Jack London Porter, and their Cherry Feyborn Berliner Weisse.  THis is a brewery that is gathering a dedicated following and significant buzz in Massachusetts, which isn’t always easy in this market overflowing with great sudz.

Stony Creek hasn’t even been in Massachusetts for a full year and they are already popping up everywhere.  Beautiful logos, interesting styles and a strong command of hops, these Connecticut brewers are not trying to fly away anytime soon.  Just in time for our tasting, they have just released Stony Joe, a golden mocha stout.  Golden stouts are going to start popping up more and more.  They are just what they sound like, a stout that pours golden yellow.  It’s a style I am still figuring out, so get in on the early days to say you’ve had one.   On top of Stony Joe, we’ll be tasting the Crankys in varying sizes.

Night Shift has been making some of the best beer in the state for a while now, but they were always just out of reach of our shelves.  Then, just before Christmas, that all changed.  Since bringing them in to the store, we have had over 10 different beers from them.  And you, the consumer, have been enjoying it.  We run through dozens of cases a week and they just keep sending us fresh, hop forward cans as well as funky and sour bottles.

It took a little bit, but we are finally having the Everett brewers in for a tasting.  If you have never tried Night Shift, come down.  We know our beer and are constantly exploring what is out there, so please trust me when I say that they are one of the top breweries in Massachusetts.  Their offeri

Bourbons are all the rage these days, especially Single Barrel Bourbon. These unique offerings are hyper-focused on nuances that barrels impart. Each barrel has its own unique characteristic that is conveyed in the Bourbon which is why most bottles have batch and barrel numbers printed on them. Barrels are a great tool as they can mask flaws, soften “hot” mashes, and sweeten when necessary. That is why in the right hands, Single Barrel Bourbon can be unforgettable.
We take joy and pride in picking out Single Barrel Bourbon because it gives us an opportunity to showcase our palate. Picking a single barrel allows us to develop a house style. What is our house style? Balance. Looking to strike a balance between flavor, body, and ABV all of
