In 1986, Russ Heissner came to Boston to be the first head brewer at Harpoon. In 2016, a new brewing adventure began in Weymouth, MA.
The BHZ team brews small-batch, barrel-aged beer that’s created collaboratively with an ever-changing roster of innovative brewers. Our philosophy, however, never varies. We believe the best beer comes from exceptional ideas & ingredients–and is guided by rigorous technique.
Our pilot plant is in constant motion. We tap a new Pilot Pour weekly, which means you’ll find 10 to 12 amazing brews in our tasting room. Always something new. We also brew beer for draft & bottles.

PILOT POURS | On Tap
An ever-changing series of beers from our pilot plant. Great beers come, stay a while, and then new greats take their place.
As a small-batch brewery, this list is happily subject to constant change. Updated: 2/15/19
RELEASE DATE 2/20: Barbemon || Brut Rosé IPA, ABV TBD
Pinot Noir Barrel Aged
A great collab with Andrew Starsiak. Think dry rosé at its fruitiest: strawberry, raspberry, cherry. Fermented with pinot noir grape must. Dry hopped with Barbe Rouge and Monroe.
Shadows of Old || Dark Farmhouse Ale 10.5%
Bourbon Barrel Aged
This collab with Dan Middendorf of Curtis Liquors—is a deep, dark beer with spicy and fruity yeast aromas. Chocolate notes emerge, as does a notable rye and yeast character which ushers in clove and black pepper. Bourbon barrel aging allows for a dry finish with oaky tannins and good char.
Cocoa Picante || Spiced Oatmeal Stout 7%
Tequila Barrel Aged
Warm & welcome aroma of chocolate and spice.
Full body with rich, chocolate flavor. Notes of spice, smoke, and slight heat work their magic thanks to an array of fresh + dried peppers. All of which is enhanced further after aging in our favorite peppery and oaky tequila barrels.
TEENY TINY Tripel 12.1%
Wheated Whiskey Barrel Aged
New release of our collab with Sons of Liberty Beer & Spirits Co. Whiskey-inspired grain bill and aged in 15 gallon wheated whiskey barrels. On the nose, caramel, banana, and clove. On the palate, caramelized banana, butterscotch, and spice. Full body with warm, dry whiskey finish.
SNOOZE BUTTON || Coconut Imperial Stout 12.8% DRAFT + NITRO
With a beer this big + dreamy, we think you're going to want a few more winks the next day. The aroma of sweet coconut offers a warm welcome as notes of roast-y chocolate, toasted coconut, and a hint of toffee follow. Finish is dry. Good feelings all around.
Paint It Black || Black IPA 7.7%
Dry hopped with Callista and Chinook. Waves of citrus with hints of chocolate + vanilla on nose. Fresh ripe raspberries + blackberries on the palate, with supporting notes of citrus peel + pine.
BAMBAM || Double IPA 8.8%
New England-style hop bomb. Simcoe rounds out Mosaic and Citra’s pineapple, orange & mango notes, adding bright touches of passionfruit and pine.
Bamboozled By Hops | IPA ABV 6.7%
Batch #3 in our rotating-hops IPA series. Dry hopped with Huell Melon, El Dorado. Hazy, deep golden color, You'll love strawberry & melon notes and welcome some serious, big-time lime.
Grove Crush || Berliner Weisse 5%
On the nose: light citrus + mango. On the palette: refreshingly tart, well-balanced match up of mango + grapefruit. Nothing heavy. Everything's chill with this beer.
Fingerpaint || Double Red IPA 8.5%
Collab with BHZ’s own Dan O'Donnell. Big, bold, smooth with a balanced bitter backbone. Hint of caramel. Earthy, dry, spicy complexity from rye. Dry hopped with Centennial for citrus and underlying resin notes.
Townie | Irish Ale 7%
Big & beautiful. Smooth as silk. Notes of caramel, vanilla, butterscotch, and toffee. Dry finish.
