Boston-Area Breweries That Are Doing Delivery/Takeout

By now, it is no secret that restaurants and bars in the Boston area and elsewhere in Massachusetts are only allowed to offer takeout and/or delivery based on a ruling announced by Governor Charlie Baker a week ago Tuesday. What may not be known is the fact that local breweries have the option to do pickup and/or delivery as well, and a few are getting the word out about this right now.

A few examples of what the breweries are doing include the Everett location of Night Shift, which is allowing customers to order beer online for pickup; Trillium, which is offering delivery to a variety of communities in the region; Dorchester Brewing, which is doing both curbside delivery and to-go beer out of its taproom; Jack's Abby in Framingham, which is offering both beer and food to go; Barrel House Z in Weymouth, which is also doing curbside delivery and to-go; Idle Hands in Malden, which is offering online ordering and curbside pickup; Granite Coast in Peabody, which is doing curbside pickup; Gentile Brewing, which has a takeout window; Notch Brewing, which is doing curbside pickup; and the following breweries, all of which are offering to-go beer out of their facilities: Springdale Beer in Framingham, Winter Hill Brewing in Somerville, Distraction Brewing in Roslindale, Vitamin Sea in Weymouth, Widowmaker in Braintree, Somerville Brewing/Slumbrew in Somerville, Harpoon in Boston, Bone Up Brewing in Everett, Lamplighter Brewing in Cambridge, Castle Island Brewing in Norwood, Aeronaut Brewing in Somerville, Bone Up in Everett, Hopsters in Newton, and Bent Water in Lynn. It looks like at least some of the breweries (like Night Shift mentioned above) are allowing for online ordering, but check their websites and social media to make sure.

Once we learn about what other Boston-area breweries are doing--if anything--during the shutdown, we will post updates here.
