Closed - Did Greg Hill run out of money?
The brew house itself is located within Maynard's Assabet Village Cultural District, alongside Millpond and adjacent to the Assabet River. It can be found at the bottom of the Mill and Main Clock Tower building(s). The entrance to the parking lot is a bit tough to find as you have to swing around the buildings down to the junction of Sudbury St. and Percival St. Plennnnnty of parking to be found though.
Battle Road is a hop, skip, and jump away from Amory's Tomb (Maynard), and a short drive from other breweries and tap rooms: Rapscallion (Concord), True West (Concord), Ground Effect Brewing (Hudson), and Medusa Brewing Company (Hudson).
Better yet, if you find yourself thirsty after a walk around Walden Pond, swing on down to downtown Maynard for a 1775 or Minuteman Gold. Then maybe head over to Amory's Tomb to enjoy a XIII.
"Taking inspiration from its revolutionary roots"
Battle Road Brew House opened in early 2017. The brew house focuses on smoked meats and foods that pair well with their craft beer. Their branding focuses on local history, specifically the revolutionary war. Given their proximity to the actual Battle Road itself, it makes total sense.
On-air personality and creator of the Hill-Man Morning Show on WAAF (now WEEI), Greg Hill, is a part owner of the Battle Road Brewery. His hospitality group, Whole House Group operates the establishment, along with other restaurants in the Metrowest area.
Maybe? Forgot to ask.
Yes. Beyond the current trend of microbreweries and small taprooms being kid friendly, Battle Road is a full restaurant - the type that isn't going to turn away business by preventing families to come and enjoy a meal.
A variety: Golden and Farmhouse ales, IPAs and DIPAs, Porters, Belgian Quads, Berliner Weisse.
Once again, they carry their revolutionary theme into the naming of their beer, from the Minuteman Gold and Midnight Rider Porter, to the Declaration Belgian Quad and 1775 Tavern Ale.
Yes. Full liquor license. Come with the territory in the restaurant biz.
Didn't see one. Too bad. Type of place I'd love to visit again.
T-shirts and more.
Yes. It's a full blown restaurant. The boast a large bar with not only a traditional dining area, but an outdoor patio that overlooks Millpond and the Clock Tower building.
"Our menu features real Southern-style pit barbecue and with plenty of beer-infused recipes."
Think: brisket, sausages, pulled pork, smoky and spicy sauces.
And we know who loves pit barbecue ...
They do private events. Someone hosted their wedding reception at the brew house. Not a novel concept, but an awesome one.
I imagine they probably have some live music from time to time, or trivia. They have plenty of square footage inside the restaurant to handle it.
I think so? I haven't seen any, but I haven't been looking for it.
Decent location and nice setup on the inside. Once again, I didn't try the grub in the brew house, but the beer was cold, wet, and tasty. The staff was knowledge and friendly, so Battle Road definitely has that going for it.
Give it a try, you may enjoy yourself.
