What are we trying to do?

We want to help you to learn how to make your own handcrafted, great tasting beer.

Whether you want to make your own hand crafted beer for just yourself, your wedding, private party or other special event, Hopsters Brew and Boards offers an unforgettable experience where you get to learn & brew your own craft beer in our state of the art community brewery. Conveniently located just off the Mass Pike minutes from Boston, Hopsters Brew & Boards is New England's only Community brewery where you can enjoy exceptional cuisine.  

At Hopsters, you'll be able to make the beer you love and with the guidance of our experienced brew masters, develop a better understanding of how great beer is made. Have your next event at Hopsters; a fun place where people come to learn and connect.

Why are we doing it?

We simply love craft beer and everything about it.  We want you to be able to learn about, make and enjoy your own craft beer while eating great food with old friends and new.

Here's How It Works

Schedule 1 to 10 kettles and create up to 30 cases of beer with your own custom labels.  Hopsters can accommodate groups from 1 - 30 people at a time. Approximate brew time is two hours. Leave your beer with us to ferment for 2-3 weeks.   Choose from our delivery service, or pick up your own. Available in 1/4 keg.

What we need from you?

We have a location, we have a name and great beer recipes, however we need help raising the funds to purchase our state of the art custom built brewing system.  It's like no brewing system you've heard of as it's specially designed so you can enjoy making your own amazing had crafted beer. We need $35,000 to purchase the brewery equipment and that's why we need your help.

Risks and challenges

Once funding is achieved we are only held by the time it will take for construction to be completed. We are aiming for an opening date in mid-September. What could hold us up would be inspections, etc. Not to worry, we will persevere!
