Where is the Battle Road Brewery located?

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.

When did it open?

"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.

Greg Hill / Whole House Group

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.

History! Ok, enough history, let's go get beer.

Do they offer a tour?

Maybe? Forgot to ask.

Is the brewpub kid friendly?

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.

BBQ and Beer, what could go wrong?

Do they offer entertainment?

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.

Things We've Written

Is Helium Beer real? Maybe ...

Perhaps you heard it on Facebook and are looking to try and find where you can buy some, or maybe you just watched a viral video and think it’s too good to be true. The truth of the matter is that helium beer makes it rounds a couple of times a year, and every time it’s nothing more than an amusing hoax.

Brewery Logos are (sometimes) the best.

Good branding is a cornerstone of any business. Craft beer drinkers want to know your brewery's mission, they want to be part of your community, and they want the artisanal stature of your beer to show up in your physical artwork, including your cans, your taproom walls, and most importantly, your brewery logo.

What is Krausening?

Commercial brewers and homebrewers alike employ experimental and traditional brewing techniques to get their craft beer just right. One of those techniques is Krausening, a traditional German approach that eschews adding any sugars or extras to the fermented beer, with the goal of producing a "cleaner" beer. In summary, and ultimate effect, to kräusen a beer is to add carbonation to it.
