Widowmaker Brewing in Braintree to Expand to Boston

A South Shore brewery is looking to open a new location, and this one would be in the city.

According to a message sent by Jay Gates of WBZ News Radio 1030, Widowmaker Brewing is planning to expand to Boston, which we were able to confirm with the people behind the Wood Road spot who had earlier put up an Instagram post hinting to this. More information should be coming out later in February, including its location and when it may debut, so stay tuned for updates.

Widowmaker Brewing first opened in Braintree in 2017, offering a variety of beers while also serving food via a variety of food trucks set up outside.

The address for Widowmaker Brewery is 220 Wood Road, Braintree, MA, 02184. Its website is at https://www.widowmakerbrewing.com/

[February 24 update: Widowmaker has confirmed what we heard earlier (and what a source told us yesterday), that its second location will be in the former Brato space in Brighton and that it will be called Widowmaker Taproom and Kitchen, with the people behind the Bone and Bread food truck heading up the kitchen.]

[October 23 update: According to a source, (and confirmed by a Facebook post), the new location of Widowmaker in Brighton soft-opens on Wednesday, October 25, with its grand opening taking place on Saturday, October 28.]
