It is with a heavy heart that we announce the closing of our Everett, MA facility on June 27, 2015.  We have been forced to close due to a sale of the building and land to the Wynn Everett Casino project.  You can read more about it in our press release.  Suffice it to say, we may be down but we are not out.  Plans are in the making to re-emerge with a new facility somewhere in the Boston market and as soon as we have news to share, we will.  If you haven’t signed up for our email list yet, now might be a good time as we will use that as the main channel in sharing information about our revival.  You can sign up by entering your email address in the box to the right of this page.

In the meantime, we will be tenant brewing a limited amount of our beer at our neighbors Night Shift Brewing. Much of what we brew at NSB will be draft only and you will be able to visit Night Shift and get growler fills and pours of our beer there.  You will continue to see our beer on tap around town but in a much more limited nature than before until we are up and running in our new facility.

Also, be on the look out for several Brett-aged projects under the Enlightenment Ales brand.  We will be releasing four different brett-aged saisons this Summer and Fall.

See you all on the other side!


Grace, Chris and the rest of the Idle Hands team
