Night Shift Brewing, 87 Santilli Hwy
“Night Shift Brewing was founded in 2012 by a trio of friends with a shared passion for home brewing. Through culinary inspiration and determined innovation, we aim to create memorable craft beers that offer a wide array of unique complex flavors”.
Upon arriving, we stumbled upon a new area, the Fermentation District. this up-and-coming area for craft breweries and distilleries was so much fun to explore!
Short Path Distillery, 71 Kelvin St.
“By combining old-world distilling techniques with a new-world, chemistry based approach to spirit development, we’re marrying the art of distilling with the science of taste – and creating unique spirits that represent the best of both worlds”.
After taking a wrong turn by the brewery, we found the Short Path Distillery and knew we had to check it out.
Bone Up Brewing Company, 38 Norman St.
“We think of ourselves as straightforward, easygoing people and that tends to show through in our beers, hence our slogan: ‘Made from Ingredients’. We like beers that are drinkable, unique, and disappear from your glass without you realizing it”.
Our brewery crawl didn’t stop there. While on our journey, we also came across Bone Up Brewing Company which has a fun arcade feel.
Village Bar & Grill, 38 Norman St.
After some drinks we decided should probably eat some food and around the corner discovered the Village Bar & Grill! Though they had only been open for a month – the food was DELICIOUS and expertly made. Definitely not expected from such a new restaurant, but we loved everything about it.
This is definitely an area that one should visit to get a sense (and taste!) of what is unique to Boston. While the traditional tourist spots are great, The Fermentation District is definitely a hidden gem to be discovered by folks living or visiting Boston!
