Burke’s Alewerks Brewery & Taproom

Guys, over the weekend, we discovered the best little brewery/taproom just 5 minutes from our house. Woohoo! Introducing: Burke’s Alewerks!

For the locals, Burke’s is located on Webster Street (route 123) in Hanover right near the Row and Ride and Boston Interiors, across the street from Stop & Shop. It’s basically right off route 53.

FYI: The faded demin shirt that I’m wearing the photo above was a steal at Target! 

The space is much bigger than I expected with all sorts of seating and even a fireplace area with couches, which were perfect for corralling tiny humans as you’ll see below. We actually chatted with one of the employees about the space and he noted there aren’t any televisions on the walls to encourage conversation among patrons. Love that!

And the beer is delicious! I don’t drink a ton of beer nowadays (sadly, it kills my stomach), so Mal and I shared a tasting flight, and I really enjoyed them all, especially the porter and IPA.

The taproom currently has limited hours, but they plan to expand them in the coming months. Starting in April, Burke’s will be open Thursday through Sunday. The weekend vibe is definitely kid-friendly, so I have a feeling we’ll pop in every once in awhile.

Burke’s serves a few non-alcoholic options (including Spindrift seltzers – love the cucumber flavor!) and, while they don’t serve food, they are totally okay with you bringing your own. We brought snacks with us and there was even a group who ordered pizza.

Question of the Day

Are you beer drinker? If so, what’s your current favorite? 

P.S. My favorite funnel sweatshirt is on sale for just $57!

  1. What a fun spot! So cool that they are kid friendly!
    I used to enjoy beer and now not so much. My husband can’t drink, so I don’t very often either. I’d rather eat my calories than drink them 😉

  2. I’m not into alcohol, even though I’m approaching the age of 21 in here in Ontario I’d be legal 🙂 I’m not planning on celebrating my birthday with beer or wine or anything like that 🙂

  3. I kinda feel the same as Erinn, I’d rather eat than drink, but every now and then a Corona (or La Raza which is brewed locally) really hits the spot! Sunny days in the PNW just call for Corona, I don’t know what it is 🙂

  4. My favorite beer style is the IPA, India Pale Ale, as I like its strong hoppy flavor.

    These beers seem bitter when you’re not used to the style, but they often have subtle aromas such as citrus and flowers, depending on the hops used.

    I also like the oatmeal stouts, with dark color and very little residual sugar so their taste is dry and crisp.
