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.

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: 8/15/18
Luana || Mai Tai American Wheat 5.4%
Tropical pineapple aroma with a hint of sweet almond. Soft wheat body and gentle sweetness.
Coldwater Crisp || Peach Pale Ale 4.3%
Hazy, golden orange dream inspired by peach crisp & all its creamy, vanilla, peachy goodness. Aroma is wrapped up in honeyed granola and sweet malt. Notes of stone fruit and vanilla follow. Lactose is added to gently boost the creamy, full-bodied character.
BRAVO ZULU || Belgian Dark Strong Ale 9.8%
Rye Whiskey Barrel Aged
Our 2nd community tap collab with Black Ale Project—an org that partners with craft breweries to raise money for U.S. war veterans. Brewed with black currants and aged in rye whiskey barrels. Bright, slightly tart fruitiness that complements the caramel and chocolate notes, along with a hint of spice. Think dark chocolate bar with dried cranberries.
Spruce Lee | Spruce Tip IPA 7.5%
A West Coast-style IPA. Dry & way big on bitter: 80 IBU. We brewed with spruce tips in the kettle and dry hopped with Chinook + Cascade. You'll take a deep dive into pine-y notes due to the spruce tips + Chinook. Bright flashes of citrus abound thanks to Cascade.
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.
BAM BAM Batch #2 | Double IPA 8.8%
BATCH #2 features Mosaic, Citra and Simcoe. Simcoe rounds out Mosaic and Citra’s pineapple, orange & mango notes, adding bright touches of passionfruit and pine. ABV 8.8%
Sunny & 79º | Ginned Pilsner
Tequila Barrel Aged 6.9%
S79 marries pilsner style with summer's most memorable flavors. Crisp, slightly bready character. Dry spiced with juniper berry, citrus peel, coriander, and cardamom.
Townie | Irish Ale
Whiskey Barrel Aged 8.7%
Big & beautiful. Smooth as silk. Notes of caramel, vanilla, butterscotch, and toffee. Dry finish.
Adeline | Stout 8.3%
Whiskey Barrel Aged
Dark brown with ruby highlights. Deep chocolate notes. Dark roast on the barley lends an essential bitterness. A touch of flaked barley smooths, gives a rich mouth feel. Whiskey barrels lend a hint of caramel, oak and a whisper of whiskey.
Bamboozled By Hops | IPA ABV 6.7%
Batch #3 in our rotating-hops IPA series. Dry hopped with Huell Melon, El Dorado. Hazy, deep golden color, You'll love strawberry & melon notes and welcome some serious, big-time lime.
