NORWOOD: OUR HOME SINCE DAY ONE
True story: the word “Norwood” doesn’t appear in our original business plan.
When we set out to open Castle Island, we had our sights set on finding a location in Metro Boston. It took us a while to figure out that wasn’t going to happen – zoning, space constraints, and a high-rent real estate market were all working against us.
As we grew our search radius around the area, we eventually found a building in a small town called Norwood that met all the criteria we had for a brewery. We toured the building, liked what we saw, and were ultimately convinced by the sign that hung above the loading dock that read, “If you’re not proud of it, don’t ship it.” That sign still hangs there today.
Ever since then we’ve been beyond proud to call Norwood our home. A town of loyal, beer-loving locals, the community has welcomed us with open arms and we’ve been overjoyed to accept. We opened our doors here on December 11, 2015, an unseasonably warm and beautiful day, and celebrated the moment with a sign on our front door that encouraged our guests to “Be excellent to each other.” In the time since that day, we’ve hosted countless birthday parties, weddings, can car derbies, charity fundraisers, conferences, politicians, professional athletes, and – most importantly – Castle Island fans who come straight to the source for a pint of their preferred thirst quencher.
Inspired by West Coast breweries whose production floors become an integrated backdrop for the taproom, our Norwood facility puts you in sniffing distance of where the magic is made. We invite you to visit us and enjoy a beer in the ideal setting – the place where that beer was born.
