Bone Up Brewing Boston

Bone Up Brewing – Great atmosphere

Down the street from their more famous neighbor, Bone Up Brewing offers a more laid back vibe than Nightshift. If you’re sick of fighting through the crowds to get a hoppy IPA, head down to Bone Up to try a diverse selection of craft beers ranging from tasty porters to high-octane farmhouse ales.

My favorite thing about this brewery is their interior decoration and overall branding. They’ve got a super cool logo of a skull with a hipster mustache. It sets off my giggles every time I see it. Inside the brewery, a central wall splits up the space with one long bar running up and down the length of the room. Against the wall, they’ve got tables, games, even a pinball machine.

Another selling point for Bone Up, they are a rare brewery that also offers food. From little snacks like bags of popcorn to warmer delights, they also almost always a having a pop-up event from a local Boston eatery.

When it comes to the beer, their choices are pretty widely varied, and the atmosphere is chill enough that I recommend getting a flight and trying out a few. Bonus – the flight comes with a free snack.
