FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
On a daily basis, we get a number of emails, Tweets, Facebook messages, and phone calls from people asking a lot of the same questions, so in an attempt to assuage those asking the questions we’re going to answer the most common ones here.
What are your hours?
Do you fill growlers?
Sorry, but we do not fill growlers any more.
Do you bottles/cans your beer?
Yes! We currently can our beer in 16oz cans and 4 packs to go. We try to have a variety of beer available in cans each time the taproom is open and we do have limited distribution. Check our website, Facebook, and/or Twitter for an up-to-date list of what is available.
Can I arrive before you open and quickly pick up some beer?
No, beer is only available during our normal taproom hours.
What is pouring today?
We work hard to keep our Facebook page, Twitter account, and website updated with the latest pouring list. Most weeks we don’t know what’s going to be pouring until that day, so if you keep an eye on Facebook, Twitter, or our website, when we know, you’ll know.
Do you sell kegs?
Due to the Massachusetts laws governing our license and pouring permit, we are not permitted to sell beer in quantities greater than 2-gallons in a single container directly to the public. Therefore, we can not sell kegs direct to consumers. We may in the future sell through a licensed retailer, but we have no immediate plans to do that.
Do any liquor stores carry your beer?
Yes. You can find out who carries our beers here: Where to Find Us
Do you guys sell pints at the brewery?
Yes sir! We offer full pours (16oz of most beers and 10oz of some of the higher alcohol beers), flights of 4 4oz pours, and small 2oz samples of whatever we are pouring that day*.
* We do sometimes have pilot batches on tap for folks to sample, those are restricted to 2oz pours and are not available to go.
Can we open our cans at the brewery?
No. Again, due to Massachusetts state law, cans are meant for off-site consumption and may not be opened in the brewery.
Can I bring my kids and/or dog to the brewery?
Yes. Kids are welcome as are dogs. In regards to dogs, please keep them on a leash and please be mindful of the crowd in the taproom. Our taproom is relatively small, only about 1000sq.ft., and it does tend to get very crowded and loud, which may make having a dog in the taproom challenging. Additionally, we may have folks in the taproom who are allergic to dogs, so please respect our request if we ask you to take your dog outside.
Do you donate to charities?
Yes, we do donate to charitable causes, however, we get multiple donation requests per day and do not have the resources to respond to every request that we get, as much as we would like to. If you have a donation request, please send it to firstname.lastname@example.org and we will review it and if it something we can support we’ll be happy to do so.
I’m hosting a beer tasting, will you donate beer to my event?
Unfortunately, no. While we are sincerely flattered by these requests, we get several of them per week and even at 100% capacity, we couldn’t supply the amount of beer that these requests alone would require. As mentioned earlier, we are a small brewery and have a difficult time keeping up with the demand of our taproom and tap accounts. Additionally, pouring beer requires us to get permits and insurance, which can get very costly.
Do you do brewery tours?
Yes, but our ability to give tours is dictated by how busy the taproom is and how many people are on staff that day. If we are short staffed or the taproom is extremely busy, then we may not have anyone available to give tours, but in general if you want a tour just ask one of the taproom staff.
