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.

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: 3/29/17
FIB #1 | Dark Belgian Ale BARREL: Bully Boy Rum ABV 6.3%
We’re always looking for new ways to use barrels. Chris Dion experimented with Fermenting In the Barrel (FIB) and a new series of beers is born. FIB #1 |Dark Belgian Ale is like a Rorschach Taste Test. You taste a lot of different things and no two sips may be the same. We taste: pear, banana, peanut butter, chocolate. All from water, yeast, malt, hops & @bullyboybooze rum barrel. Dry oaky, tannic bite on the finish.
KEEP CALM | Belgian Golden Strong ITB: In the Buff ABV 7.2%
Ode to Spring, from Team Chris. Pear notes from the Belgian yeast. Citrus and spicy hop character from Warrior and Zupersaazer. We dry hopped with lemon, lavender, and cardamom for a bright, refreshing touch. Low to medium bitterness. Effervescent with a good dry finish.
QUAKER STATE | American Oatmeal Stout Double-Oaked Bourbon Barrel Aged ABV 9.1%
Heck of a good, bold stout from brewer Shaun Andruk. Crystal and Chocolate malts, along with oats and flaked barley, give a deep rich stout experience. Hops? LOTS o' hops. IBU of 60. You'll get citrus, berry & pine. Double-oaked barrel gives a smoky character on the finish.
ADELINE | Stout BARREL: American Whiskey ABV 8.8% (available on draft & nitro)
Brewer Chris Webster started creating this recipe in 2008 while in graduate school. Years of work paid off. 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.
TOWNIE | Strong Irish Ale BARREL: 1-mos. Rum 9.2%
For our third collaboration, co-brewers Dan McGuire and Russ Heissner selected Pale and Dark Crystal Malts to give Townie big flavor with a smooth finish. Apollo and Cascade hops lend a balanced floral essence.
RR#23 | Red Rye Aye BARRELS: 1-Mos Rum ABV 10.2%
A big, unapologetic beer that’s as smooth as they come. Co-brewer Scott Hutchinson. Rye and Crystal Malt set forth sweetness, while a zing of Mandarina Hops keeps things balanced.
JAMAICAN SHANDY ABV 5.2%
RR#23| rum-barrel aged meets ginger beer. Spoiler alert: it's a happy ending!
