Lord Hobo Brewing Company Plans to Open Restaurant, Taproom in Boston's Seaport District

One of the bigger names within the Boston-area brewery scene is making plans to expand--and its expansion plans include a massive new space by the city's waterfront.

Eater Boston is reporting (via Brewbound) that Lord Hobo Brewing Company is looking at opening a restaurant and taproom in the Seaport District that would have a seating for 800 during the warmer months, with half of those being on an outdoor patio. The new spot, whose exact address has not been given as of yet, is only part of the company's future plans, as an expansion of its facility in Woburn is also in the works, while a taproom could be coming to New York City as well.

The person behind Lord Hobo Brewing Company is Daniel Lanigan, who also runs the original Lord Hobo beer bar between Kendall Square and Inman Square in Cambridge.

[October 20 update: According to an article from, Lord Hobo will open at the upcoming Two Drydock development at the Raymond L. Flynn Marine Park, with founder and CEO Daniel Lanigan saying that "we have the opportunity to build our version of the Taj Mahal of breweries in the Seaport." The post says that the new location will include a gastropub, taproom, and lounge area along with an outdoor patio and a "coffee concept" in the lobby of the building. No opening date has been given as of yet, though construction of the building plans to be completed around the first quarter of next year.]
