Night shift has moved to a NEW LOCATION. The new place is still in a somewhat industrial area but not scarey - and lots of on street parking. It's actually walkable from Wellington Station on the Orange Line (although it might be like playing frogger so please be careful if you choose to walk!). This weekend was the opening of the new place - it has 4 or 5 large picnic tables in an area with roll up garage doors to let in light and the beautiful day. Also a handful of barrel tables. 4 oz tastes range from $2.50 to $3.50. There's also a choice for 12 oz pours for around $7. When we went there were about 10 beers on tap - but they are supposed to offer more choices once they have fully moved over from the old location. You can buy bottles, growlers and assorted merchandise (Tshirts, glasses, etc.) while you are there. Overall a great way to spend a few hours.

A friend recommended Night Shift as a great place to stop by while in Boston for a couple days of vacation. Three of us swung by on a Tuesday afternoon, (parking in a nearby McDonald's parking lot as Night Shift's website warns to be careful of getting towed at the nearer lot) and found the brewery tucked away in the back of a semi-sketchy warehouse.

The brewery is filled with oak barrels with beer brewing and fermenting, as well as several large fermenting tanks. Night Shift had several beers on tap (7 or 8), and more in bottles available. We each got a flight of 4 samples ($6) to get the broad range. I got a Whirlpool (citrus-y pale ale), a JoJo (a pink, floral, hybiscus IPA), a Mosaicnation (belgian double IPA), and a Taza Stout (chocolate-ginger stout). Friends also got the Rose and Bee Tea. The beers are all super-drinkable and focus on individual flavors rather than heavy carbonation. My favorites were the Mosaicnation and the Taza Stout. They have several tables set up in the middle of the active brewery, and you're welcome to hang out and drink while the brewers work around you. Check out their (not mobile-friendly) website for more information about the beers. Definitely worth the trip out.

(As a bonus, Idle Hands brewery is right next door, so two breweries in one trip if they're open!)

This local nano-brewery has some delicious and creative brews. I appreciate breweries that aren't afraid to think outside the box about their ingredients and flavors. I recommend the beer flight to get the full experience. The Jojo, Rose, and Taza Stout were particularly tasty.

Don't let the location scare you aware. This place is a real hidden gem.

Don't be steered away by the location! My husband and I looked it up online, realized it was in a warehouse district, but were almost turned around because the area around the brewery did just not feel right, get past this and go!! The beers were great, and very creative. We got the viva habanero more than once, and had to pick it up for BBQ after one of the brewers mentioned this for a pairing.

We did an entire beer tasting day with some friends, and Night Shift was on the schedule. Once you get over the "storage unit" appearance and actually finding it, the brewery was fantastic! We met one of the co-founders and it was awesome to hear the story of how this little brewery got started. The Viva Habanera is my favorite beer, by far! I loved the smokey pepper after taste! It reminded me of home :) They also have a Somer Weiss which was pretty good, but very sour. It would be perfect on a warm summer day! We got a little tour and it's amazing to see the growth of their business in just a year! Congrats guys! We will definitely be coming back for more of that Viva, and hopefully bringing some more friends to enjoy you beers! Thanks!
