The first Boston location for the popular Salem-based craft brewery, Notch Brewing’s Brighton taproom is their take on a traditional Czech and German-style beer hall, while their expansive biergarten makes it the perfect place to gather year-round.
The taproom and biergarten are home to frequent events, such as live music, hands-on workshops, movie nights, and plenty of opportunities to gather.
Launched in 2010, Notch Brewing – named for the nick made to keep record when you’re having more than one – was the first brewing company in the U.S. to focus exclusively on session beer, which only has 4.5% alcohol or less. These lower alcohol beers, based on classic session styles from the Czech Republic, Germany, England, and Belgium, are the perfect way to bring people together for a good time.
In July of 2022, Notch Brewing was named Boston’s Best Brewery in Boston Magazine‘s annual Best of Boston issue.
