We visited Bone Up Brewing Company in Everett, Ma. They are located in the same neighborhood as Night Shift, which we went back to visit while in the area.
The husband-wife team of Bone Up Brewing started brewing at their location May 2016, after a long renovation process. They describe their beers as ‘American brewing with a Belgian accent’. Their tagline is ‘made from ingredients’ so their is a little bit of sass there.
It turns out the day we visited they were celebrating their 1 year anniversary of opening the tasting room. We actually had to wait in line to get in. They had the whole parking lot roped off for the party.
They serve full pours, half pours and flights of 4 beers for $8. We ordered flights, and they come with your choice of a small snack.
Key Lime – white ale 4.8%
A light beer with a strong key lime flavor. They were going for maximum fruit flavor and got it, might have been a touch too much key lime for Mark, but pretty good for Megan.
Jollybringer – tripel aged in triple sec barrels 8.6%
Mild Belgian taste, fairly sweet with a touch of heat on the backend. It left a little to be desired.
Cosmic Showers of Love – dipa 7.5%
Smells fruity, has a mild hop character, a little bit malty with a touch of sweetness. It smelled better than it tasted unfortunately.
Gnasher – grisette 4.8%
Light, a slight peppery taste to it, mild overall but true to style.
Megan and Mark
Their tasting room is pretty small, a long bar with a few small tables. It was crowded when we were there, but they did a good job serving everyone. We went outside to have our beers.

Sam insisted on taking Megan’s phone and
taking pictures, so we used them!
