Hopsters Brewing Company (Seaport)
The Seaport long needed a place to get craft beer. It didn't know it needed a place where you could brew your own beer. Enter Newton's Hopsters Brewing Company.

Opening just over two years ago, Hopsters Brewing Company expanded from their Newton brewery into Boston's Seaport District. Sandwiched between a metric ton of new bars, restaurants, companies, and The Barking Crab, Hopsters lets concert goers pre-game their show, and parents coming out of Boston Children's Museum grab a cold pint of beer while feeding their kids.
If you are called hopsters, you'd thing you were all in on hops, but they aren't. Hopsters Brewing brews a variety of craft beers, with the Newton and Seaport locations actually serving different brews, with some crossover.
- 292 Brown Ale
- Cherry Harbor-Weisse
- Comet Mosaic
- Das Fort Point Lager
- Drop the Hammer
- Happy Hour
- Market Square Tripel
- The Duke
- Upper Class
Apparently, they openly acknowledge their secret tap, which, by definition, makes it not secret. The benefits conferred include unique brewery events, special tastings, etc.
Hopsters Brewing in Boston's Seaport is a full-service restaurant. Salads, appetizers, sandwiches, burgers, flatbreads, and entrees. Like Bison burgers and Duck drummettes.
Open for lunch and dinner, Hopsters is a good stop to make before a concert at the Harborlight Pavilion. Err, Rockland Trust Bank Pavilion.
Hopsters, like Natick's The Kells Beer Company, allows aspiring brewers and patrons to brew their own beer. For just over $200, you can walk away with a delicious tripel, or, hazy IPA. Dig it.
Hopsters brew your own facts:
- How much: About 66 beers per batch
- How long: A few hours, then bottling
- How many: Up to four people
