We’re welcoming fall with open arms and a beer in each hand because our fall favorites Copper Legend and Fire in the Ham are back! Copper Legend is our German style Octoberfest beer, packed with Munich malts and German hops- and this year, for the first time, it’s available in six packs of 16oz cans! Show us where you take yours with the hashtag #cansinhands on instagram and twitter. Fire in the Ham is a super smokey rauchbier brewed with 90% beechwood smoked malts. It’s super smokey and smooth, perfect for cooler nights.
Who’s ready to geek out? We’ve got four packs, growlers, and pours of Beer Geek Helles, our new collaboration brew with New England Brewing Co., ready to go at the Beer Hall. We used custom German malts, a double decoction mash technique, and pounds and pounds of Nelson Sauvin and Hallertau Blanc hops to create the perfect summer brew for those who prefer their beer to have some geek cred. Also, Ginger and Juice is back and it’s our best batch yet. Our patio is open so come enjoy a pint!
We’re feeling the summertime vibes at the Beer Hall this week! We’ve got Framingham Lager in 40oz glass and 12 oz twelve packs, we’ve got s’mores-inspired Graham Cracker Barrel-Aged Framinghammer flowing from the taps, and we’ve got a new infusion project on draft- Raspberry Lime Rickey. We took our Framingham Lager and added bunches of lime and raspberries to make a super refreshing ode to Summer. Stop by for a pint and a pizza soon and stay tuned for news on the opening of our patio!
This week Framingham Lager is back! Framingham Lager is our take on an American style light lager, brewed with 100% real malt and 100% real hops. It’s the perfect porch-drinking beer and this year we’ve put it in the perfect porch-drinking package, 40oz glass. A portion of all Framingham Lager proceeds will go to support the Framingham Downtown Renaissance and we’re psyched to be partnered with them for the third year in a row. Come grab a 40 (brewery only), a twelve pack, or a pint!
Also new on draft this week is German IPL. This is crisp refreshing lager packed with Mandarina Bavaria and Huell Melon hops- two super fruity German hops.
This week a new brew, Coffee House Lager, hits the taps. This beer, conceptualized in collaboration with Rockin’ & Roastin’ organic coffee, is light in color but packed with coffee aroma and flavor. Stop by for a pint!
Coming soon to the Beer Hall: German IPL and Framingham Lager

It’s a good week for sour fans- our Cranberry Berliner is back in bottles and on draft!

BA Framinghammer season is almost over but we’ve saved the best for last! PB&J, Cocoa-Nut, and Mole Barrel-Aged Framinghammers all hit the Beer Hall this week. The PB&J pays homage to everyone’s favorite sandwich- aged in bourbon barrels with peanut butter and raspberries. Cocoa-Nut is like a candy bar all grown up- aged in bourbon barrels with cocoa nibs and toasted coconut. Mole is one of the newest Barrel-Aged Framinghammers- aged in bourbon barrels with cinnamon, cocoa, and four different chili peppers.
