Hopsters Brewing Company Reopens Seaport with New Management Team, New Menu

BOSTON — Hopsters Brewing Company, Boston’s first and only custom craft brewery, restaurant and bar that allows you to brew your own beer, reopens it’s Seaport Boston location Thursday, July 16th, 2020. Part of Owner Lee Cooper’s reopening plan includes new Upper Management hires and implementing a new elevated food menu to serve a more catered experience for guests.

Deciding to reinvest in his brand, Cooper added several members to his Upper Management Team prior to reopening it’s doors, including: Director of Operations Marshall Crane and Executive Chef Kyle Wallace, both formerly of Chef Jody Adams’ Trade and Porto Restaurants; and Head of Marketing Chelsea Hildreth, formerly of Miami’s Clevelander South Beach hospitality brands.

“With COVID being the new normal, our guests will be more discerning on how and where they spend their hospitality dollars,” said Cooper. “With an emphasis on great service, food and experiences we wanted to invest in the best leadership that will provide our guests the best experiences possible”

The first step the Hopsters Team took was to create an elevated food menu under the guidance of Executive Chef Kyle Wallace while continuing to upgrade it’s craft beer, wine and cocktail menu. The new menu features American Classic offerings with a modern twist, including items such as an artisan squash blossom flatbread, Mediterranean-style Shishito Peppers and an upgrade to the classic American cheeseburger to make it Hopsters’ own.

“We wanted to elevate our food to enhance the Hopsters Brewery experience,” said Cooper. “Chef Wallace, previously working under Chef Jody Adams at Porto and Trade, has been given the freedom to create an exciting and mouth watering menu that supports our house brewed beers, that I can’t wait for everybody to enjoy.”
