We love how DBco’s mission has gone beyond brewing its own crave-worthy suds to becoming a boon for the local brewing industry. Opening its huge 25,000-square-foot facility in summer of 2016 allowed the budding company to extend an invite to the city’s startups looking for a space to brew. And now, its 20 tap lines feature a slew of options from its partners in addition to its own creative quaffs.
When it comes to DBco’s own beers, experimentation is the name of the game. The 11-percent ABV Barrel Aged Quad, aged in red wine barrels, is oaky with flavors of dried fruit and warm spices. A nitro tap line injects tiny bubbles into the Nitro Savin Stout, which is bittered with Chinook hops for a distinctly smoky, herbal twist. Clapp’s Cream Ale is warm-fermented and carbonated with nitrogen, making for a velvety smooth finish.
Since distribution is super limited, you’ll have to travel here to sample these creations; if you don’t live in Dorchester, it’s the perfect excuse to see why the neighborhood’s generating quite a buzz. So settle in, set up one of the taproom’s 40 board games, and sip away.
