Slumbrew Is Opening a Brewery and Taproom in Somerville

After more than 100 years of being without a brewery, the city of Somerville will soon have two of them.

A post on its Facebook page today indicates that Somerville Brewing Company's Slumbrew brand has signed a lease for a space on Ward Street (just southeast of Union Square near the Cambridge border) for a brand new brewery and taproom. Once it opens, Slumbrew will become the second brewery in the city, with Aeronaut Brewing Company opening on Tyler Street, which is the other side of Union Square, later this spring. Up until now, Slumbrew has been making their beers out of Mercury Brewing Company in Ipswich.

As mentioned in the earlier article on Aeronaut, Somerville hasn't had a brewery since the 1880s.

The address for this new brewery in Somerville is: Slumbrew, 15 Ward Street, Somerville, MA, 02143. The website for Slumbrew can be found at

[April 17 update: According to Somerville Brewing Company co-owner Caitlin Jewell, Slumbrew will be having a soft opening starting tonight and lasting through Monday.]
