The local scene in Arlington, Massachusetts, is buzzing as Arlington Brewing Company sets up shop temporarily for a December residency at The Roasted Granola Cafe. This pop-up celebration of beer kicks off amid their hunt for a permanent spot to brew and serve their craft concoctions.
Founded by Tom Allen and Matt Guernsey, both engineers with a shared appreciation for a good pint, the enterprise surfaced from humble beginnings. The duo's vision for the Arlington Brewing Company took shape over casual playground conversations, as reported on the Arlington's website. They've since graduated from experimental batches to acclaimed beers that have resonated with the local community.
The brewery, which claims to be Arlington's first craft producer, is now bringing its offerings to the masses thanks to The Roasted Granola Cafe. According to information relayed by Boston Restaurants Blog, beer enthusiasts can stop by on Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays to enjoy Arlington Brewing Company's libations, including their flagship Spy-P-A, a New England IPA that's also available in local liquor stores.
While the pop-up presents an opportunity for Arlington drinkers to sample the company's wares, it's just an appetizer for Allen and Guernsey's plans. They remain committed to finding a dedicated brewing space in their community—a testament to their dedication to both their craft and their roots.
