Widowmaker Brewery Is Opening in Braintree

A new brewery is going to be opening near one of the busiest intersections in the Boston area.

Wicked Local is reporting that the Widowmaker Brewery has received unanimous support by the Braintree license board for a farmers's series pouring permit/malt and restaurant license, with the place opening on Wood Road near the Braintree Split where Vanity World had been before moving to Canton. The article says that the brewery will include a 70-seat taproom and possibly food trucks on-site (it will not have a kitchen), and that it will be open Thursdays through Sundays. The post says that the Widowmaker Brewery will have six to eight "core" beers, with manager Ryan Lavery saying that they will also have a number of recipes that they can fall back on.

If all goes as planned, the Widowmaker Brewery could be opening in August.

The address for this new brewery in Braintree is: Widowmaker Brewery, 220 Wood Road, Braintree, MA, 02184. Its website can be found at

[September 23 update: According to a Facebook post from the place, Widowmaker Brewery is having its grand opening today.]
