South Boston

Castle Island Brewing Company: South Boston is now open!


Q: Where is the new taproom located?

A: In the Cole Hersee Building at 10 Old Colony Avenue in scenic South Boston, MA. Just a six-minute stroll from the Broadway T Station!

Q: What are your hours?

A: We’re open seven days a week: Thu – Sat 11 AM to 12 AM, Sun – Wed 11 AM to 10 PM.

Q: Can I make a reservation, or can I just walk in?

A: Reservations are available at right now. Reserved seating is limited, and only for parties up to 8 people. We will also welcome walk-ins on a first come, first served basis, but reservations are highly recommended.

Q: Do you have any COVID-related restrictions?

A: We will always recognize and observe the current COVID-related restrictions as mandated by the City of Boston and State of Massachusetts. Currently, you must wear a mask when you enter the building, but are welcome to remove it once you are seated and consuming food/drink.

Q: Are you hiring?

A: YES! Go to and apply today!

Q: What can we expect?

A: Besides a bunch of delicious beer, you can expect a 10-barrel innovation brewery, a tasting room and event space, and Bardo’s Bar Pizza churning out South Shore-style bar pizza!

Q: Why a second location?

A: Well, why not? It’s no secret that with our namesake being a landmark in South Boston, we wanted to open our facility in the city from the start. We found our home in Norwood and it was a better fit for us to get things started, but when we were presented with the opportunity to open up a second location in South Boston, we couldn’t say yes fast enough.

Q: Are you leaving Norwood?

A: NO WAY. We love the home that we’ve built in Norwood dearly, and plan to have our production headquarters and taproom there for a long, long time.

Q: Can I bring my kids/dog/cat/pet dolphin?

A: Well-behaved children are more than welcome with their families, but unfortunately, the City of Boston says no animals allowed in the Taproom. (And you really shouldn’t have a dolphin as a pet. They belong in the ocean.)

Q: Most important: what are we gonna be drinking!?

A: All of your favorite classic Castle Island beers, limited releases, one-offs and collabs, and some exclusive new stuff that you’ll only be able to find in South Boston. In addition to that, we’ll have a wide variety of non-alcoholic beverages for our friends who don’t partake or are driving. (Please note: we are only licensed to pour what we brew, therefore we don’t have any wine/cider/liquor. We do have an in-house seltzer that we carry most of the time as well.)

Q: What kind of food do you have?

A: Our culinary partners-in-crust Bardo’s Bar Pizza has curated an awesome food menu featuring South Shore-style bar pizza, cutlet sandwiches, salads, and small plates. (Note: This means we cannot allow outside food, not that you’d want to…)

Q: Do you have live music/trivia/karaoke/bingo/paint night/basket weaving/etc.?

A: We will soon! (Working on some licensing, etc.)

Q: THERE’S AN EVENT SPACE?! Can I book my birthday/wedding/co-ed baby shower/corporate function/fundraiser/niece’s bat mitzvah there?

A: We’re not booking events right now, but will announce more details on that shortly…
