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: 10/19/17
BOVINE INTERVENTION | Milk Porter, ABV 5.9%
So many puns, so little time. Let's get right to it: malt-forward, soft chocolate notes, light roastiness, creamy & full-bodied mouthfeel.
PITCHFORK | American Wheat, ABV 4.6%
A crisp & refreshing pour. Soft breadiness from wheat. Zesty, citrus notes thanks to orange peel sharing time in the kettle with Hallertau. Hazy, unfiltered.
ZELATO | Coffee Stout BARREL: 8-Mos. Bully Boy Whiskey 8.7% (nitro only)
As a nitro-only pour, Zelato sets a new stout standard. Your first sip delivers creamy vanilla & coffee roastiness. Dark roasted barley gives the stout essential bitterness. The fine whiskey barrel from Bully Boy Distillers allows caramel, oak, and whiskey notes to develop.
FIB #3 | Russian Imperial Stout BARREL: 4- Mos. Double Oak Bourbon 9.4%
FIB #3 is the third brew in our Fermented In Barrel Series. This Russian Imperial Stout has a welcome first wave of bitter dark chocolate notes, with bourbon and oak following right behind. Hint of vanilla rounds out the profile.
TOWNIE | Irish Ale BARREL: 1-Mos. Bully Boy Whiskey 8.4% and 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.
DEEP CUT RESERVE No. 4 – RR#23 | Red Rye Ale BARREL: 11-Mos. Bully Boy Whiskey 10.8%
Another great take on a great red rye ale.You'll get spicy rye notes, plus lots of caramel, toffee, oak tannins and a beautiful bourbon embrace from the Bully Boy whiskey barrel.
SUNNY & 79º | Ginned Pilsner BARREL: 1-MOS Tequila 6.2% and ITB (In the BUFF) 6.0%
Co-brew with Doug MacNair. 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% (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.
SUNNY RADLER 4.25%
Sunny & 79º | ITB with splash of sparkling grapefruit. V. refreshing.
