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.
BEERS | 4-Packs + Draft
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: 5/14/19
SMaSH 2.0 || IPA 6.8%
Well-balanced IPA with wonderful body. Single use of Golden Promise malt leads to a beautiful golden color ale with a sweet bread profile. Hallertau Ariana hop lends a helping hand to malt profile, adding notes of tangerine, orange peel, gooseberry, and a subtle note of vanilla. Mild resinous finish.
Rose Hips Don't Lie || Belgian Witbier 4.1%
Aged in Pinot Noir Barrels
Rose hips and petals joined the brew for aging in the pinot noir barrels. Bready malt and floral aroma.
Character is dry + effervescent. Flavor notes of soft wheat, floral, light peppery spice from yeast, and hint of a citrusy brightness.
MULE-iSH || Ginger-Spiced Pale Ale 8.1%
Aged in Bully Boy Whiskey Barrels
Stubbornly good brew that identifies with the Derby Day libation known as the Kentucky Mule. Spiced with ginger, lavender, and a citrus-peel medley of lemon, orange, lime, and grapefruit. Spicy ginger aroma upfront with a hint of malt. Flavor notes lead with ginger and lavender, followed by citrus. Light malt sweetness, dry oak finish thanks to whiskey barrel aging.
Empty Skies || Baltic Porter 9%
Rum Barrel Aged
Just what your doctor should order. Aroma of dark fruit, sweet malt. Deep, warm flavors of dried cherries, plums, raisins, toffee, molasses. Hints of licorice, chocolate and coffee.
Blonde Bomber || Imperial Blonde Ale 9.5%
To quote brewer Chris Dion, "All the coffee-orange-chocolate-vanilla flavors you love in the shot, now packed in a rich monster-pastry beer and aged in rum barrels." Big + beautiful.
S'More Money | S’More Stout 3.9%
Sweet aroma with hints of vanilla + graham cracker. Rich, full body. Hints of coffee roastiness followed by a big wave of chocolate, and then sweet marshmallow, vanilla and graham cracker on finish.
Coldwater Crisp | Peach Cobbler Pale Ale 4.3%
Coldwater Crisp first came into this world as a taproom Pilot Pour last summer. It's inspired by peach crisp & all its creamy, peachy goodness. Aroma of honeyed granola and sweet malt. Notes of stone fruit and vanilla. Lactose added for luscious, full-bodied character.
Day Walker Red | Oatmeal Red Ale 4.7%
Collab with the Stewart Brothers. Aroma of sweet malt + slight nuttiness. Full, creamy body from heaps of flaked, golden naked oats. On palate, caramel sweetness with hints of toast, granola, nuttiness. Balanced bitterness.
100 Stories || Belgian Milkshake IPA 4.3%
New collab with our friend Nate Burkhardt of Empire Wine & Spirits. This sessionable IPA is dry hopped with Jarrylo and Huell Melon. Fruity, slightly herbal aroma. Notes of banana, pear, clove, orange peel, and melon. Full, creamy body.
Sunny & 79º | Pilsner
S79 marries a traditional pilsner style with summer's most memorable flavors. Dry spiced with juniper berry, citrus peel, coriander, and cardamom. Two releases.
ITB (In the Buff) 5.4%
Tequila Barrel Aged 6.8%
Electric Rye || Session Rye Pale Ale 4.3%
Dry hopped with Green Bullet + Cascade. Lots of flavor and sessionable. Aroma of citrus, spicy rye, slightly pine-y. Flavor notes: toasted bread, rye spiciness, and resin + citrus.
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.
Grove Crush Radler 4.8%
Sunny & 79º Radler 4.9%
