Down the Road Beer Co. made its first official mark on the Metro Boston Craft Beer market with the launch of its signature Pukwudgie Pale Ale in April 2015. However, the company Founder and Head Brewer, Donovan Bailey, began brewing beer over 20 years ago. Down the Road Beer Co. brings a uniqueness to the Craft Beer market by bucking the trend to create the next craziest innovation. Instead, we focus on crafting high quality beer, brewed locally in MA using fresh ingredients and inspired by traditional brewing techniques and styles. Drink local, and taste the difference freshness can make.

Announcing our Winter Seasonal: Spring Heel Jack London Porter (6.5% ABV) – Available Week of Thanksgiving!
This dark, malty brew features strong notes of coffee, chocolate, caramel and fruit, and is the perfect companion to lazy snow days spent hearthside. “So much of the porter market is cornered by barrel-aged booze bombs, but we wanted to make something more traditional with a London Style Porter.” explains Donovan Bailey. Spring Heel Jack’s London Porter hits the mark by drawing on centuries of English brewing heritage with no quirky ingredients, balanced hops and rich malts. Spring Heel Jack pours as black as the soul of its namesake. Herbal Fuggle hops uplift the heavy body of Chocolate and Black malts, and English Ale yeast finishes the brew with dry fruity esters.
Newest Session Ale: Patchwork Kilt Scottish Ale (4.5% ABV)
The newest addition to the company’s session beer lineup, this malt-forward beer is hauntingly complex with deep, rustic notes of dried fruit and fresh honey. Patchwork Kilt clocks in at 4.5% ABV, the perfect balance for taking the edge off without losing your wits. This Ale pours a dark copper with a creamy head. The nose is thick and almost bready with a faint hint of currants. On the palate, Kilt is smooth, almost silky, with a delicate, honeyed sweetness that gives way to roasty malt and a homely smokiness.
