We welcome you to our Taproom!

Located on Main Street in Hudson's Historic Downtown Business District

 

Medusa Brewing Company opened to the public in March of 2015 on Main Street in Hudson, MA. Since then, Head Brewer Keith Antul has been hard at work handcrafting ales and lagers that reflect the global landscape of beer. From beautifully constructed American-style ales to traditional Eurpean-inspired recipes, Medusa Brewing Company strives to provide for the ultimate variety in our draft selection.

Our brewery and taproom are the result of a staggering, 15-month buildout that had owners and friends working around the clock to complete their vision. An enormous 50-foot bar constructed of salvaged steel and white oak acts as the centerpiece of the taproom. The Beer Hall provides for a more formal area where guests can enjoy full-service ordering while seated at hand-built mahogany wood tables. We invite you to come and enjoy what we have, and will continue to create. Cheers!

Sully, Keith, & Tom
