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 cibeer.co/southieresy 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. The City of Boston Vaccine Mandate has been lifted based on current public health data. We will no longer be checking for proof of vaccination and masks are optional, per Order of the City of Boston.
Q: Are you hiring?
A: YES! Go to cibeer.co/jobs 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 or on our patio. (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 feature Stump! Trivia on Tuesdays at 7:30 PM, as well as live music most Friday nights and additional events and programming as scheduled. Check out our Events Calendar here.
Q: THERE’S AN EVENT SPACE?! Can I book my birthday/wedding/co-ed baby shower/corporate function/fundraiser/niece’s bat mitzvah there?
