Hopsters, Boston’s first and only custom craft brewery and restaurant, is continuing its new tap takeover series after a successful inaugural event; where it will host one of its favorite local craft beer companies for one night, offering exclusive beers on tap from the Brewery and a unique opportunity for avid fans to brew a rare recipe with the brand’s founder or head brewer.
Slumbrew, based in Somerville, MA, and its head brewer, Jeff Leiter, will take over Hopsters’ kettles and lead the brewing efforts – including the grinding, mashing and boiling – to ultimately create two 75 gallon batches, each a one-of-a-kind Kolsh beer: one with strawberries, and the other with Italian plums.
25 lucky people who reserve their spot in advance will have the opportunity to brew custom craft beer from scratch with one of the industry’s top beer experts and, after 2-3 weeks of fermenting, will have a case of this exclusive beer to enjoy at home.Throughout the evening, while the brewing process is taking place, brewers and non-brewing spectators who stop in for a drink at Hopsters bar will have a chance to taste several of Slumbrew’s top brews including:
• Happy Sol• Flagraiser IPA• Trekker Trippel• Porter Square Porter• My Better Half• Lobstah Killah Imperial Red Ale.
