The Boston Brewery

Our Home for Innovation

The Boston Brewery is where all our beers get their start, with the exception of Boston Lager, which was born in our founder Jim Koch's kitchen. It is the smallest of our three breweries, but it is the most important.

What's on Tap

Boston Lager (5.0%)

The Classic. Bold, rich and complex, this lager balances caramel and toffee notes with hints of spicy pine and citrus from Noble hops.

COLD SNAP (5.3%)

Crisp unfiltered White Ale with a blend of exotic fruits and spices. Distinctly spicy with floral, fruity notes and subtle citrus character.

Sam 76 (4.7%)

Crushable Sam. This revolutionary beer uses both ale and lager yeast for a juicy citrus hop aroma and a clean, easy-drinking finish.

Pilsner (5.2%)

Light-bodied and crisp with mild spiciness and light, fruity, floral hop aromas.

HOUSE HELLES (5.5%)

A classic, refreshing malt-accentuated lager that's not overly sweet. Soft and dry finish with hints of cracker and light bready notes.

NEW ENGLAND IPA* (6.8%)

Purposely unfiltered, this hazy New England style IPA trial brew has a burst of fruity hop aroma. Low bitterness and hints of grapefruit and pineapple. Served as a 12 oz pour.

MINNESOTA NICE (7.0%)

Using a Norwegian yeast that almost defies definition and dry hopping that brings big notes of citrus and a light creamy finish.

TART NEW ENGLAND IPA* (7.2%)

A New England Style IPA that was kettle soured using lactic acid bacteria, then generously dry hopped. Expect a soft mouthfeel with a tart refreshing finish.

*denotes 12oz pour

EL DORADO (7.1%)

Brewed to showcase the unique flavors and aromas of El Dorado hops. With a soft mouthfeel and minimal bitterness, the melon, red fruit, and tropical character from the hops is allowed to shine.

NITRO CAFE AU LAIT * (6%)

As close to a latte as we could get. Crystal and roasted malts, and lactose create a rich, creamy mouthfeel. Blended with Shady Lady cold brew blend coffee from Copper Door Coffee Roasters in Denver, one of our BTAD partners.

HORST MARZEN (5.5%)

Collaboration with beer writer Horst Dornbush for an upcoming piece. Complex malt forward flavor with a soft and silky body and noble hops.

RAUCHBIER (5.2%)

Classic medium-bodied German lager with smokiness from wood-smoked malts.

GRAPE KMF GOSE* (5%)

Refreshing gose aged on Sangiovese & Nebbiolo red wine grapes and infused with our signature house sour, Kosmic Mother Funk.

WEDDING WIT (5.75%)

Brewed for our teammate Travis's wedding with 16 pounds of orange peel, as well as coriander, clove, nutmeg and love.

BOSTON BRICK RED (5.7%)

A beer inspired by and brewed for our city! This classic Irish red style has a rich malty backbone and deep ruby color.

BERLINER* (3.5%)

Our take on a traditional kettle-soured Berliner Weisse. Highly sessionable, with just enough tartness and flavor.
