Burlington Beer Works Plans to Open in Former Outback Steakhouse Space

A local group of restaurants and brewpubs continues to expand through the Greater Boston area, with a new one now being planned for a space north of Boston where a popular location of a restaurant chain had been.

According to an article in the Daily Times Chronicle, Burlington Beer Works is looking to open in the former Outback Steakhouse space in the Burlington Crossroads shopping center on Cambridge Street. The article says that the town approved of its plans this week, though with the continued permitting process and upcoming construction, the place probably won't be ready to open until the middle of 2016.

Existing locations of Beer Works including ones near Boston's North Station, in the Fenway, at Logan Airport, and in Framingham, Hingham, Lowell, and Salem.

The address for this planned restaurant and brewpub in Burlington is: Burlington Beer Works, 34 Cambridge Street, Burlington, MA, 01803. The website for the company can be found at

[January 3, 2018 update: More than two years after first being announced, Burlington Beer Works has still not opened, and a new article in the Daily Times Chronicle mentions that town selectmen are not pleased about this, taking action by recently having a revocation hearing that focused on the unused liquor license. The post says that the planning board will look into the granting of a building permit for the place tomorrow (Thursday, January 4) and that if approved, construction would apparently commence immediately, while selectmen have allowed "mercy" to Burlington Beer Works, continuing the liquor license discussion via a meeting on January 22, and its decision will be based on the decision made by the planning board this week. (An attorney for the restaurant group says that the plan is to open Burlington Beer Works this June.)]
