About

2 years ago we set out to bring what we call "social plant-based dining" to Boston.  We started with a pop-up in Quincy.  People seemed to dig it.  Like, really dig it.  Now we're working to open our first long-term location in Central Square - a massive 4,700 square foot space complete with an outdoor beer garden.  It's going to be WILD.

Rewild

Rewild is Boston's first (we've even been called "America's first") 100% plant-based beer hall & cafe.  We combine the best local craft beer, wine, kombucha, and artisanal coffee with plant-based versions of your favorite pub foods in a social atmosphere that celebrates local artists, musicians, and entrepreneurs.  

We're on a mission to make plant-based dining more accessible, approachable, and fun and have a real cultural impact on how people eat in social settings - better for you and better for the planet

Our Story 

After a plant-based diet rid Boston native and entrepreneur Pat McAuley of a number of health issues he battled since childhood, he was all in.  He left his career in craft beer and set out to share his story in hopes of positively impacting the lives of others.  He soon realized there was a major problem... there was nowhere for him to eat in the Boston area.  Even worse, there was nowhere to hang out and enjoy a few craft beverages alongside a plant-based meal.  Not cool...  So, like any beer loving entrepreneur would do, Pat set out to solve the problem and make plant-based eating more convenient, approachable, and fun in Boston.

As fate would have it, a friend of a friend introduced Pat to Marissa Hughes, a restaurant industry veteran who shared his passion for plant-based cuisine and the rest was history.  Rewild is a reflection of Pat and Marissa's collective life experiences.

Our Food

We focus on creating foods that are approachable and familiar to all, regardless of dietary preference.  Foods that people are used to eating in a social setting - pizzas, burgers, tacos, sandwiches, buffalo wings... but done in the healthiest and most sustainable way possible using 100% plants.  We also focus on providing very health forward dishes like green and grain bowls, wraps, and vegetable forward creations.

Feeling super health conscious?  We gotchu!  Come on in, have a ginger shot, a greens and grain bowl, a craft kombucha or tea.  

Want to let your hair down a bit?  Oh... we so gotchu!  Come on in, have a burger with fried pickles, a buffalo pizza, and a few craft beers.

Yes, all of the below is made from plants... 

Our Vibe

Plant food + Craft Beer + Organic Wines + Kombucha + Craft Coffee & Teas + Fast Wi-Fi +  Outlets + Art + Music + Sustainability + Inclusiveness + Positivity + Good Vibes

What We Need

Our new Central Square space is a BIG project.  A project that will bring plant-based dining into the mainstream here in Boston.  It will cost close to $2Million in total.  We are close!  But we need help with the last $200K.  All of the funds will go toward completing the buildout of the space.

We will announce the exact address during the campaign! :)

Thank you!

What a journey it has been thus far.  Thank you to all who have supported and continue to support us.  See you soon!

Risks and challenges

The biggest challenge is completing the project. It's expensive, time consuming, and there will be all kinds of hurdles to overcome. But, we have been at this for 2 years now and we won't stop until we make plant-based dining accessible, approachable, and fun for all in Boston and beyond!
