The first stop on the Beantown Imbiber is Bone Up Brewing.
Jared and Liz “Jimbo” Kiraly are a husband and wife team who built out their 1600 square foot brewery and tap room in Everett by themselves. After over a decade of home brewing and working in the hospitality industry, the two decided to open a brewery that would make American beer styles with a noticeable Belgian “accent”. The small production brewery in the back is turning out enough beer to support the eight tap lines in the taproom. Learn more about this company, and the origin behind the unique names they have given to their beers.
Next up is Idle Hands Craft Ales. Co-owner and brewer Chris Tkach has opened a bigger and better brewery in Malden for Idle Hands Craft Ales after being unceremoniously expelled from its Everett home to make way for a casino. The new brewery is more than three times the size than the Everett space and features a comfortable tasting room in which you can enjoy traditional Belgian and German styles alongside hoppier offerings.
Last stop is Mystic Brewery. Mystic Brewery is a brewery specializing in farmhouse-style ales utilizing locally sourced yeast and other ingredients. Drawing on historical methods, their increased focus on fermentation allows them to impart a sense of unique New England terroir into all of their beer. Their beer can be found in select bars and restaurants across the country.
