OUR STORY

In 1986, Russ Heissner came to Boston to be the first head brewer at Harpoon. In 2016, a new 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.

BEERS | Bottles & Draft

NEW! Bamboozled By Hops | IPA 

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: 12/12/17 

Release 12/16: FUGGLEY SWEATER | SOUR
Featuring Fuggle hops, this sour is tart & refreshing. You'll get a welcome tang of cranberry and a hint of sweet orange. 

GRACE ANNE || Baltic Porter, BARREL: 8-mos. Aged in Bully Boy Whiskey ABV 10.7%
One of our Lift Off beers from early June, we stashed away a barrel to age even further. The result is pretty amazing. Dark fruit & raisin with caramel sweetness upfront. Full bodied with hints of vanilla and chocolate. Brewer Brian Donovan has created a beauty of a beer.

JOHANN SEBASTIAN | BOCK ABV 6.6%
JS| Bock is a collaboration inspired by our friends at the Boston Guitar Orchestra. With a beautiful copper amber color, this bock has a nice, upfront bread-y character. Caramel sweetness and pronounced dark fruit & cherry notes from the German lager yeast's fruity esters.

BAMBOOZLED BY HOPS | IPA ABV 6.0%
Hazy, deep golden color, Bamboozled By Hops offers the aroma of strawberry & melon with citrus and tropical notes. On the palate, citrus, mango, pineapple, orange peel. 

FIBS-GIVING | Spiced Pale Ale BARREL: 1-mos. Bully Boy Whiskey ABV 4.8%
FIBS = "Fermented In Barrel" Brewer Chris Dion experimented with stuffing as part of grain bill. Results? Awesome: Herbal & spice aroma with light citrus. Flavor notes: bread-y (cornbread & toast), sage, black pepper, light caramel, whiskey.

TOWNIE | Irish Ale BARREL:  1-Mos. Bully Boy Whiskey 8.4%, ITB 7.0%
This big red ale has a strong caramel backbone with restrained bitterness. Kettle-hopped with Apollo & Cascade. Dry-hopped with Cascade & Hallertau. The result is underlying herbal and citrus notes for a well-balanced Irish Ale.

SUNNY & 79º | Ginned Pilsner   BARREL: 1-MOS Tequila 6.2% and ITB (In the BUFF) 6.0%
Traditional pilsner style with a handful of summer's most memorable flavors. Pilsner and Munich malts. Nugget, Pacifica, and Mandarina hops. Plus juniper berry and citrus peel.

ADELINE | Stout   BARREL: American Whiskey  8.8% (nitro only)
Deep chocolate notes. Dark roast on the barley for an essential bitterness. Touch of flaked barley smooths. Time in the whiskey barrels gives hint of caramel, oak, and just a whisper of whiskey.

– DEEP CUT RESERVES –

TOWNIE DOUBLE | Irish Strong Ale BARREL:  11-mos. Aged Double Oak Bourbon ABV 10.6%
Big, beautiful beer. Notes of caramel, vanilla, butterscotch, chocolate. Good oak character. Apollo & Cascade keep things balanced. Clean finish.

OAKIE | Wheat Wine BARREL: 9-mos. Aged in Bully Boy Whiskey ABV 14.7%
A big, warm whiskey hug of a beer from brewer Glen O'Connor. Notes of caramel, butterscotch, toffee, oak,  and vanilla. Our biggest ABV to date. Keeping the pours down to 5oz. and 10oz.
