The Braintree Beer Garden returns for a second season after a hugely successful debut in the fall of 2018.
The family-friendly and dog-friendly event offers the best in fresh, locally brewed suds poured by Chef Avi Shemtov’s innovative Tapped Beer Truck, plus activities and drinks for children and a rotating collection of notable Boston-area food vendors. The event is co-organized by Kay Lorenz, a popular figure in the Bay State craft beer community who owns Craft Beer Cellar in Braintree.
The 2019 Braintree Beer Garden takes place each Saturday in September and October from noon to 5 p.m. The 2019 Braintree Beer Garden kicks off on Saturday, Sept. 7 featuring food from Yellow Door Taqueria of Dorchester.
“The Braintree Beer Garden is a family-friendly event embraced by the community last year and we’re delighted the town is welcoming us back in 2019 in a bigger and more beautiful location,” said Shemtov.
The event this year moves to a beautiful and historic new location across the street from the original space, being held this year in a shady, tree-lined lawn between the Gen. Sylvanus Thayer House and the Gilbert Bean Barn Museum (786 Washington St.).
“Creating a social setting at our Braintree Historical Society property will raise a level of awareness of our town’s history to those who may not know it,” said Braintree Mayor Joseph C. Sullivan.
The Braintree Beer Garden in 2018 quickly proved a popular family-friendly event, featuring activities for children and a rustic, small-town atmosphere of community and camaraderie.
The town’s embrace of the beer garden was evidenced by Braintree’s firefighters, who blew their fire truck horns as they drove past the event each Saturday while children, many still in youth soccer uniforms, waved back at Braintree’s Bravest.
The site of the Braintree Beer Garden is directly across the street from Braintree Town Hall. The event overlaps with the community’s popular Saturday farmer’s market, creating a hub of autumn activity in Braintree’s historic downtown.
The Braintree Beer Garden is easily accessible by automobile and public transportation. It’s located a short distance from Route 3, Route 128 and Interstate 93 and is walking distance from Braintree T station on the MBTA Red Line and commuter rail. The Braintree Beer Garden is also served by the MBTA’s 230 bus route.
