Idle Hands Craft Ales at Craft Beer Cellar

Idle Hands Craft Ales will be pouring both their flagship beer Pandora, as well as one of their limited release beers - Triplication, a Belgian Style Tripel, at Craft Beer Cellar in Belmont today from 5-7pm.

You may recall that Idle Hands Craft Ales was at the forefront of the Farmer-Brewer Licensing issue in August, but fortunately and thankfully the issue was resolved and the Everett based brewery started production. They currently run a small batch brewery, which features a 1.5 barrel brew system and 60 gallon fermentation vessel. Though small in size, their beers are big, bold, and flavorful! Expect some other great beers from them in the upcoming months, but until then, you can enjoy Pandora and Triplication.

Stop into Craft Beer Cellar for some samples and a few bottles this evening as the new brew won't stay on the shelves long!

A Brew England Saturday

With's a better way to celebrate yet another gorgeous faux-winter day than to get back to our brewery-visitin' ways?

With an array of new, local breweries to check out we definitely have our work cut out for us.

It's days like this that make us feel lucky to live in this area - looking forward to some delicious local brews today.

As of now we are thinking the day may end with dinner at Redbones ? But who knows where the day may take us. Stay tuned!
