BOG IRON BUCKET FIRE CLUB…
THE FUTURE OF GROWLERS AT BOG IRON BREWING
August 12, 2017
We’re excited to announced the formation and launching of the Bog Iron… Bucket Fire Club! As a lot of folks know, we launched our own mobile phone app a couple of months ago and the creation of Bucket Fire Club is possible due to the “check in” feature on the app. The more you check-in from the tap room, the more you can earn free schwag and, ultimately, admittance into this very exclusive club.
SINGLE BARREL SOURS AND THE SUMMER SESSIONS SERIES
August 1, 2017
As most of you are aware there has been a lot of buzz around growlers in Massachusetts after the Alcoholic Beverages Control Commission’s (ABCC) advisory regarding breweries ability to fill growlers that are entirely blank (you can read the ABCC’s advisory here). Following that announcement, we posted our thoughts and policies on Facebook, Twitter, and our blog (you can read our blog post on the topic here, if you’re interested). A number of people wrote to us, posted, and Tweeted their opinions on growlers and our policy. We weighed the feedback we received, our own opinions on growlers, and, most importantly, what’s best for the beer. After careful thought and consideration we’ve decided to eliminate growlers altogether around the early fall timeframe. Instead we will be packaging more of our beers in 16oz bottles and selling those out of the taproom.

A recent advisory from the Massachusetts Alcohol Beverages Control Commission on growlers has made a lot of news in our community and we wanted to let our customers know what our policy has been, will be going forward, and why we’ve chosen it.
THE STORY OF BOG IRON BREWING
May 24, 2017
That’s a weird title, I know… but most of our names are weird, so….
It’s been way too long since our last blog post. It’s something we promise to be better at from now on. That said, we currently have a great reason to do one… so here goes…
Bog Iron Brewing is a small microbrewery located in Norton, Massachusetts. At the end of 2011, Bog Iron Brewing was formed. After just over a year of licensing, inspections, etc., our first beers were delivered to the public in early 2013.
The Bog Iron beers are a product of a 15-barrel 3 vessel custom-built single-tier brewhouse, composed of a hot liquor tank, mash/lauter tun, and boil kettle. Brewing on this system allows us to produce a very consistent product, while still being small enough to allow us to experiment.
