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: Feyborn Cherry Berliner Weisse (4.5%)
What do beer drinkers really want for the holidays? How about something crisp, refreshing and decidedly different? Introducing the newest iteration of our well-received Feyborn Berliner Weisse – this time with a cherry twist. At 4.5% ABV, this new brew features a kettle-soured wheat base with a blast of sour cherries and will be available this winter for a limited time only!
At its base, Berliner Weisse is a low ABV, golden wheat that is more sour than most wild ales and less sour than lambics. To contribute additional character, Berliner Weisse is often enjoyed “mit schuss,” meaning “with sauce.” Inspired by the diversity of the schuss tradition, Down The Road is excited to bring back this favorite with seasonally appropriate tart cherries!
As with all of its beers, Down the Road’s Berliner Weisse draws on folklore from its region of origin. Feyborn is a reference to the myth of the changeling child – a faerie that assumes the form of an infant to blend in with human society. Characterized as a wild child with flowing golden locks, a mischievous grin, pointed ears and an animated tail, our Feyborn is nothing but trouble.
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.
