If you haven’t heard, Aeronaut Brewing will be opening in Somerville this weekend.
A craft brewery and urban farmhouse in the old Ames Envelope, Aeronaut features a line up of eight craft beers for a range of palates. Thanks to my work with Somerville Local First, I got a sneak peek at this new venue last night as they hosted a pre-opening “Somerville night”
Their beer, of course, was fantastic.
Among my personal favorite was the Lagerfeuer – made with smoked Butternut Squash. Yeah, you read that right. And it’s delicious.
Their maple beer – made in partnership with Groundwork Somerville – is a good choice for those who prefer darker beers. Their Imperial Stout is also a quality dark beer, with a rich, nutty flavor.
With the hot summer weather upon us, the Armadillo (made with Tangerines!) and the Saison are both light and refreshing.
And, their space is fantastic. Joining other local businesses such as Aerial Arts Craft and Brooklyn Boulders in giving Ames a life after death, they’ve opened their space to host Barismo coffee roasters and Something GUD, a CSA which includes ready-cooked meals and locally prepared treats.
All in all, a great new business for our Somerville Community!
