Hopster's Brew and Boards to Open in Newton Corner

A unique kind of  "community" brewery that allows folks to make their own beer is on its way to Newton.

According to its website and Facebook page, Hopster's Brew and Boards is going to be opening on Centre Street in Newton Corner, bringing to the neighborhood a place where people can learn about the brewing process, including making and bottling a variety of beers to take home with them. The brewery will also have a pub area that will feature local craft beers as well as English-style boards with cured meats, pate, cheeses, breads, and pickles.

It is not yet known when Hopster's Brew and Boards might be opening, so keep checking back for updates.

[August 26 update: According to a post on its Twitter page, Hopster's Brew and Boards is planning to open in approximately three weeks.]

[September 10 update: A new post on its Facebook page indicates that Hopster's Brew and Boards is going to start brewing on Sunday, September 15. (Daily Candy also mentions that brewing sessions will begin that day, with prices being $150-250 per kettle.)]

[September 24 update: Based on a new Facebook post, Hopster's Brew and Boards is going to start serving food this Thursday (September 26).]

[November 25 update: The Restaurant Hub blog of The Boston Globe states that Hopster's Brew and Boards has received a liquor license, so it can now serve beer (and eventually cocktails) with its food boards.]

The address for this upcoming community brewery and pub is: Hopster's Brew and Boards, 292 Centre Street, Newton, MA, 02459. Their website can be found at
