Barrel House Z—OUR STORY
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.

Slightly dry in body with soft wheat character for balance. Floral + citrus flavors. Hint of earthiness, rounded out by light, fruity yeast character.
BHZ Hard Seltzer 4.3%
Hard Lemon Seltzer: lots + lots of fresh lemon juice. Glorious lemon haze is proof that we're all about FRESH lemon juice!
Hard Lemon + Blackberry + Thyme: simple syrup made with fresh blackberries + thyme that’s added to the hard lemon seltzer for slightly sweeter lemon/blackberry/thyme option.
DEEP CUT RESERVE RR#23 | American Strong Ale 13%
Two-Year Bully Boy Whiskey Barrel Aged
This big, smoothly beautiful beer has been relishing two-years of R&R in one of our favorite barrels. Notes of caramel, toffee, oak tannins, and warm bourbon embrace.
Malty Boi || Scottish Ale 3.5%
Malty Boi may have been put on this earth to prove that a beer can have BIG flavor with LOW abv. Enjoy the #maltbomb explosion on your palate thanks to a new double-roast crystal malt. Flavor notes of caramel, raison, coffee, and plum.
Gemini || Double IPA 8.8%
Golden-yellow DIPA living + loving life as an earthy DIPA with a well-balanced malt bill.
Uncle Dave || Witbier 5%
Simcha cocktail-inspired witbier with honey, grapefruit peel, and star anise. Big notes of grapefruit peel upfront, Subtle hint of star anise. Clean,dry finish.
Sour Patch Summer || Saison 4.7%
In April, we released our first Sour Patch Saison. Big hit. Encore required. For this batch, we explored Sour Patch Watermelon. Expect slightly more melon-y sweetness with underlying citrus notes.
Paradiso || Stout 5.9%
This “tropical” stout refers to the fermentation technique developed in tropical climes. Dry hopped with an innovative new hop that lends traditional hop notes (berry, dried fruit, bitterness) along with the unexpected addition of toasted oak notes. Dried fruit, vanilla, and bourbon flavors.
Boss Bock || Dunkel Bock 7%
Last March, we held a MA home brewer’s competition and Jeremy Adams’ dunkel bock took first prize. His recipe was inspired by a visit from his boss, a craft beer fan who loves Dead Guy Ale. Appropriately named Boss Bock, this beer has great malty aroma and flavor. Munich and Maris Otter used as base malts, with Simpson Double Roasted malt lending caramel roastiness.
Spaghooty Grisootty || Grisette 3.9%
Light-bodied cousin of the saison, this Belgian brew has a big flavor profile. Biscuity malt character with subtle smokey notes from barley malt smoked over alderwood. Clean, peppery finish.
