Cold Harbor Brewing Company
Located right off Rt. 135 (near Westborough Ctr.) is the Cold Harbor Brewing tap room. Grab a high top, a craft beer flight, and a handful of bar pretzels for a good time.

Cold Harbor is an eloquent nanobrewery, containing everything necessary, and nothing more. Beer, pretzels, and friendly service. It opened in 2015. It's a small, but dedicated operation. It certainly isn't on the scale of Jack's Abby, but what really is?
Right outside of Westborough center, 10 minutes from the Mass Pike and Rt. 495, and less than half an hour to Worcester is the Cold Harbor Brewing Company. If you're coming from other Boston on a brewery tour, it's about 45 minutes. When you arrive, make sure you drive down and around the back of the building to get to the tap room. Plenty of parking is available.

Probably not? Forgot to ask while we were there.
I'd imagine so. Though, be warned, there is nothing for your kids to do there, so bring some games for them.
IPAs, DIPAs, Saisons, Pale Ales, Wheat Beers, and more.
The beer was good. I enjoyed the Feather Edge (NEIPA | galaxy, cascade, and amarillo) and Stone Spindle (Saison | azacca, cereal grains, and lemon) more than the Damsel (NEIPA) and the Water Meadow (Wheat). That's not to say the other two were bad, just personal preference I suppose. Overall, I would put Cold Harbor beers just under something like Springdale, almost like a younger brother with similar genes that is just trying to catch up.

Didn't see one, so I am guessing that is a no.
T-shirts and hats. Probably tasting glasses as well.
Bar snacks. Pretzels when I was there.
They have an events section on the website, but nothing listed at the moment. No bar games or otherwise.
Doesn't look like it.
They have a few picnic tables outside to sit on, but the atmosphere is a bit lacking.
Overall, it was a good experience. Tasty craft beer, nice tap room, super friendly bartender.
If you are in the Metrowest/Central Mass area, you should give it a shot.
