Update: Night Shift Brewing Reopens at Lovejoy Wharf in Boston After Being Closed Since January

[Ed note: This article was updated on May 6 to reflect the fact that the place has opened back up.]

A local brewery is closing its Boston location for the time being.

According to a source, Night Shift Brewing at Lovejoy Wharf is planning to temporarily shut down after business hours on January 23, with a Facebook post from the business confirming this. The post goes on to say that the reopening date is "TBD," and that they are "hopeful that it happens sooner than later" while also referring customers to their Everett location which will remain open.

The Lovejoy location of Night Shift is one of countless dining and drinking spots to temporarily close for some or all of the winter months as the pandemic continues.
