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.

Gorilla Math | Belgian Coffee Stout 7%
Port Barrel Aged
An instinctively great stout. Aroma of roasted coffee and chocolate. Flavor profile delivers stone fruit notes of tart cherries & plums. Roast-y notes of dark chocolate and deeply roasted coffee. A full-bodied pour. Taproom only. Draft, crowlers & growlers to-go.
Beast the Elder | Belgian Saison 9.5%
Port Barrel Aged
A big, fruit & floral marriage thanks to port-barrel aging & the addition of elderflower. Aroma of banana, bubblegum, clove, and floral notes. Sweet red fruit on the palate (cherry/strawberry/plums) with a slight earthiness. Dry finish.
In A Jam | Strawberry White IPA 6.3%
New collab with Barrett's Alehouse in West Bridgewater! A hazy IPA with lots to love. We used a Belgian yeast, added coriander and orange peel to the kettle, and dry hopped with Cascade, Huell Melon, and strawberry puree. On the nose, look for sweet red fruit as well as slightly herbal and spicy notes. Flavor notes include: ripe berries, citrus, black pepper, eucalyptus, clove, and banana.
Girls On The Run | Pale Ale 5.8%
Our beer is a golden ale: light, bready with notes of honey. Dry hopping wth Nugget gives herbal, earthy notes with mildly sweet hop aroma and flavor. We're giving back a portion of sales to Girls On The Run, a great org that inspires girls to be healthy & confident using a fun, experience-based curriculum integrated with running.
Trifecta | Red Ale 11.5%
Bully Boy Whiskey Barrel Aged
A big ole, beautiful beer. A most holy union of beer, barrel, and cocktail to celebrate Derby Day. Aroma includes fresh mint and sweet Bully Boy Whiskey. Flavor notes: mint, caramel, oak, toffee, and a bit of spice from the rye used in the malt bill. Heat from the whiskey on the finish.
Sunny & 79º | Ginned Pilsner 6.4%
Traditional pilsner style with a handful of summer's most memorable flavors. Dry spiced with juniper berry, citrus peel, coriander, and cardamom.
Townie | Irish Ale
Whiskey Barrel Aged 8.4%
Big & beautiful. Smooth as silk. Notes of caramel, vanilla, butterscotch, and toffee. Dry finish.
Bamboozled By Hops | IPA ABV 6.0%
Batch #2 in our rotating-hops IPA series. Dry hopped with Huell Melon, Citra, and Mandarina. Hazy, deep golden color, Batch #2 offers strawberry & melon with even bigger citrus notes for balanced bitterness.
