Hard to believe it’s already been two years since we set out on this crazy journey to bring you great beer without hassle. All of the preparation and hard work we put in helped us accomplish so much this past year, and gives us much to be thankful for. Let’s recap with some numbers and highlights:
- The biggest highlight was the opening of our Taproom. We opened the taproom in June and it quickly became a focal point of the community that we’ve built around Castle Island Brewing.
- We’ve grown to over 35 employees, and aren’t slowing down. (Check out our job openings here!) But despite all the new faces, we’re psyched to all share a love for beer and an appreciation for the family that we put together here.
- This year we debuted Hi-Def, and it has been CRANKING. Y’all have loved our Double IPAs in the past, so we listened and brewed up this year-rounder to sit alongside Keeper and Candlepin.
- We’ve brewed over 5000 bbls of beer this year which is an awesome milestone for us, but the real accolades should go to you, our thirsty fans, who drank all that beer!
- The Pilot System also came into our lives this year, and we’ll be unveiling her name soon. We’ve already started experimenting with some recipes, but expect much much more in the coming months! It’s been a long year, but it flew by. Thank you to everyone who has given us a shot and supported our vision of great beer. 2017 is drawing to a close and so is our second year of operation, but we’re not done yet! We still have to celebrate…
To celebrate our anniversary we’re rolling out TWO, our very special Imperial Stout. We want to make it a rager of a party, so we’re tapping variants and pairing them with some food throughout the day, including Cupcakes from Caked Boston and Tacos from Los Jefes: Next Level Eats.
