It has been a big week for the brewers at Night Shift Brewing. First their Massachusetts Farmer-Brewery license was approved.
If you have been following any of the upheaval around this issue you know there were big changes and lots of lively discussion when it seemed that the state licensing agency might change the entire landscape which had allowed Massachusetts to flourish as a center of great beer-making. So this latest license approval is especially wonderful news for Night Shift Brewing and the nano- and micro- and craftbrew loving citizens of our region.
And if all that wasn’t enough, their commercial brewery space is nearing completion. Night Shift Blogging has a great new post about their journey with some nice artistic shots of the aMortonDesign Permit Set on the construction site (thanks for the shout-out guys!).
Our contact during this process was Mike O’Mara, a one-time architecture student who has turned his creative talents to being part of a team that figures out how to combine familiar ingredients in unexpected ways. Consider the Tripel Tangerine Turkey centerpiece of last Thanksgiving to get a sense of their culinary range. And, of course, there is a Taza Stout in the mix since their roots are in Somerville. Looking forward to trying all the Night Shift Brews soon and guessing which unique local ingredients are in the mix.
