Lord Hobo Brewing Opens Brewery Taproom

Woburn, Mass. — Lord Hobo Brewing Company(LHBCo) has officially opened the doors to their highly-anticipated renovated on-site brewery taproom in Woburn, Massachusetts. Dubbed, The Humble Castle, the 3,500 square foot space will feature 40 tap lines, taproom-only draft and can releases, craft pizzas, entertainment, a retail store and more.

New hours for the taproom will be 11 a.m. – 12 a.m., daily; the kitchen will begin serving food at 3 p.m. Upcoming programming for the taproom will include yappy hours for dog owners, trivia, bring your own vinyl nights, keep the pint nights, and industry nights, amongst other events.

“It’s about effing time,” says Daniel Lanigan, Founder of the brewery. “Our team, friends of the brewery and fans will now have a proper place to call home and hangout. They’ll get the same experience that we have brought to craft beer enthusiasts at events far and wide.”

During its first three years of existence, LHBCo. grew to be crowned one of the 100 largest craft beer breweries in the country and among the top five largest in Massachusetts by focusing on its relationships with distributors and retailer across 15 states. “From the beginning we wanted to make high-quality beers widely available,” says Lanigan. “But we realized we also had an opportunity and desire to better serve our fans at the mothership.”

The new taproom can accommodate crowds of up to 180 people and features a semi-private event space for hosted events. An expansive 40 draft line system will feature Lord Hobo’s fan-favorite core offerings, limited and brewery-only Lord Hobo releases, and rotating guest taps.The taproom will also serve draft wine, and non-alcohol offerings like root beer and nitro cold-brew coffee.

Lord Hobo’s taproom will offer unique on-brand-experiences, serving as a haven for live music with a carefully curated roster of national and local talent; a quarterly artist residency program featuring artwork from international and local artists; a high-end merch shop that will carry classic LHBCo gear and highlight guest merchandise from collaborative partners; and, its close proximity to the Middlesex Fells Reservation, also promises to be the ultimate watering hole for runners, hikers, bikers, and those who seek adventure.

“Daniel [Lanigan] has always created community hubs and connected people to better beer experiences,” says Kate Ballenger, taproom General Manager. As a longtime publican, Lanigan has previously built famed craft beer bars such as Moan & Dove in Amherst, Mass., and the venerable institution Lord Hobo Bar in Cambridge, for which the brewery shares a name but is actually a separate business.

“At only three-years-old, the brewery is like the younger, cooler cousin of the bar,” says Ballenger. “The new taproom will help us drive growth in 2019 and beyond for our brewery and brand. For those who love the original beer bar in Cambridge and love Boomsauce but have never been to the brewery, the Humble Castle is now a must-visit destination for them — especially for craft beer drinkers near Woburn.”
