Lamplighter goes deep on beer styles, from the staples, such as IPAs and Pilsners, to a bit more diverse brews like Bourbon Wolves, a Porter aged in Bourbon Barrels, and Kendall Square, a Barrel-aged Mixed Fermentation Sour with strawberries Madagascar bourbon vanilla. LBCO covers the major Cambridge squares in their beers, including Central Square, Harvard Square, Inman Square, and of course, Kendall.

They also collaborate with Aeronaut Brewing just outside of Somerville's Union Square. Interstellar, their third collab, is a delightfully smooth DIPA that lives up to it's "snappy finish" billing. Plenty of juicy fruit from the melange of hops for you to enjoy.
