It feels like it was yesterday when we first opened our taproom doors to Main Street. When we look back at how far we have come, how much our family has grown, and how many of you have graced our taproom, we are humbled. Cheers to everyone who came out to celebrate our Two Year Anniversary with us, and here's to the days ahead, and behind us!
Within two short weeks of its debut, the Black Ale Project Milk Stout was drained of its entire 217 gallon (14 keg) supply! Offered for pints in the Medusa taproom as well as in growlers to go, the total amount of beer sold raised $7095 after taxes; all of which will be donated to the New England Center and Home for Veterans. The NECHV is a Boston-based charity that Medusa Brewing Company chose for this project based on their exemplary track record of providing homes to veterans in need of shelter.
"WET RAKAU", the latest in our Solo Project series, is a single-hopped American Pale Ale featuring whole cone, wet Rakau hops grown at Four Star Farms in Northfield, MA! We put together this little video to show just how cool everything about this is!

We are excited to announce yet another expansion of our taproom hours. Beginning this week, we are now pulling our weekday opening time back to 3:00PM, adding in Mondays, and opening Fridays at NOON! In addition to opening earlier, we are also planning to stay open a little later each night, but will take this on a day-to-day basis.
If you've been to the taproom lately, you may have notice a higher number of beers available on draft and in growlers. Head Brewer Keith Antul has been brewing beer like crazy to meet demand, and we've finally hit a nice balance. Around this time last year, our draft list will likely have featured about 8 different beers. Today, we have TWENTY on draft and plan to keep that number up there. Check out our draft list for what's current!
MON - THU 3p - 10:30p
FRI - SUN 12p - 10:30p
We've teamed up with our friends at Union Coffee Roaster of Ayer, MA to bring you expertly roasted coffee, served with a unique twist. Instead of brewing and serving our coffee hot, we use the cold-brew method to slowly brew the coffee into a concentrate over 16+ hours. We then blend this concentrate with our filtered brewing water and transfer the solution into a keg. Nitrogen gas is then used to pressurize the keg and deliver the beer to a special faucet installed behind our bar. The resulting product is a delectable, chilled, creamy, cascading coffee, poured neat into a 10oz mug for your enjoyment. Cheers!
This week's roast: SUMATRA
