ON TAP EXCLUSIVES
Lime Gose Cider
like a margarita without the midnight text to your ex.
Drier side: hopped grapefruit
something refreshing before the cold sets in-- dry cider with fresh grapefruit juice and equinox hops.
roasted joe: coffee & bourbon
a tip of the cap to that one time we got kicked out of a casino in maine after a few too many lewiston martinis. roasted joe is a coffee and bourbon infused cider with the perfect balance of rich nuttiness and toasted oak. worth every ounce of trouble.
our own take on a classic style-- not dry dry.... just drier.
ALSO ON TAP
unfiltered and unfettered...the way cider should be. (samples, growlers, cans)
fresh-pressed cape cod cranberries make for a tart bite finish.
ben's uncle, a reality show winner, lives on an off-the-grid maine island chock-full of wild berries. this unfiltered cider is packed with blackberry, blueberry, and raspberry. more tart than sweet. juicy as hell.
a reward for all that shoveling. we keep it interesting with toasted oak chips, cinnamon bark, nutmeg, and a little extra kick to help forget you have to go back out there.
looking for a tour? make a reservation and we'll show you around (on us), topped off with samples (on us) and a flight of cider (also on us).

- 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 over doubles as one of the best ways to see the city.
- BY CAR - if you have to drive, toss the address into your gps. please note…
we have 16 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.
