What's Going On In The Taproom?
***until further notice, the taproom will remained closed to the public monday through friday. we will be open on saturday and sunday during our normal hours for cider to go. we will not be offering samples or tours during this time. it's rare that we make an outright responsible decision, but this is one of those times.***

how to get here
we’re in the shipyard in east boston. building #32 - it’s on the left, couple big garage doors, some art on the front of the building, can’t miss it (kidding - it looks just like all the other warehouses around it). if you get super lost give us a call @ 857-301-8881. we've had some issues with apple maps*. if you use apple, they'll get you lost. we suggest using waze or google maps.
*apple is pretty difficult to get a hold of, it turns out.
the t - take the blue line to maverick station. downeast is a 0.6 mile, 12 minute stroll through east boston’s jeffries point. give yourself extra time to make a pitstop at piers park (undercover best spot for picnics or pick up b-ball).
by boat - prefer to cruise over? so do we. boston harbor cruises offers water taxi pick up spots across the city’s waterfront. give them at ring at 617-227-4321 for drop off in the east boston shipyard, stop #68. the ride doubles as one of the best ways to see the city.
by car - hop on aol and print out some mapquest directions. if you take a wrong turn, may god have mercy on your lost soul.
by lyft or uber - driver: “this looks abandoned, are you sure this is where I’m supposed to drop you off” you:”fuck yeah. pull straight through the guard check-in and drop me off here on the left, building 32, with the big garage door. thanks, 5 stars.”
we have some labeled parking spaces directly in front of our building (building 32…please do not park anywhere else in the shipyard). there are plenty of spots along marginal street leading into the shipyard if you're cool with walking a few feet.
can i bring my kid? sure...but if you're booking a tour those seats are only for people of legal drinking age.
can i bring my dog? dogs are welcome-but you’ll be right in the heart of our operations. that means heavy machinery, cleaning agents, pipes, hoses…so they will need to stay strictly in our taproom space. we don’t want your dog to get hurt because we love your dog. if anything ever happened to your dog, we would never, ever forgive ourselves.
