Dorchester Brewing Co. is going to get even better.

Raise the roof! Dorchester Brewing Co is expanding!

People love drinking beer.  People love drinking beer outdoors – especially on the roof!  Well, Dorchester Brewing Co. broke ground on Tuesday on a $3 million expansion – including a restaurant, roof deck, game room and greenhouse! 

An additional whopping 5000 square feet will be added to the current 2000 square foot brewery on Mass. Ave.  1000 square feet will be dedicated to fun and games with a room that will include board games, video games and maybe even shuffleboard.  

According to Boston.com, the brewery is working with local companies RODE Architects and Stack + Co. to create a 2,200-square-foot greenhouse on the roof.  It will be a four-season beer hall, complete with a fireplace! Next to the greenhouse will be be wraparound roof deck for those warm and sunny days! The restaurant will be run by a Dorchester-based barbecue food truck – the name of said food truck will be announced later. 

The goal for the completion of the project is October.  Perfect beer drinking weather!
