BEER WINE LIQUOR
Night Shift Brewing was founded in 2012 by a trio of friends with a shared passion for homebrewing. Through culinary inspiration and determined innovation, they aim to create memorable craft beers that offer a wide array of unique, complex flavors.
WHAT DO they BELIEVE?
This team believes in creating and sharing a world class culture built around their passions. This belief influences everything from branding, to sales service, to staffing, to their Taproom environment, to their processes on the production floor. Night Shift Brewing is endlessly passionate about the culture they create, and look to share that culture with those around them.
Night Shift Brewing began homebrewing in a Somerville, MA kitchen in 2007, starting with a 5-gallon "boil kettle," a Gatorade cooler "mash tun," and some basic starter recipes. Over time, they refined their process, enhanced their recipes, upgraded equipment, and were soon homebrewing well past midnight 2-3 times per week. They called themselves "Night Shift Brewing" - desk workers by day, homebrewers by night. By 2009, they were sampling their own brews against every commercially available style, brand, and region possible. They realized that while not everyone makes truly great, memorable beer, anyone (including them) could make it with enough dedication, passion, and knowledge.
THEIR FIRST HOME
When friends and family started demanding more Night Shift, they realized that brewing could become much more than a nighttime hobby. In 2010, the team starting writing a business plan to begin their own nanobrewery. By 2011, they had raised a small amount of capital and began building a 3,000 sq. ft. 3.5BBL brewery in Everett, MA. On Saturday, March 31, 2012, Night Shift Brewery opened their doors for the very first time.
NIGHT SHIFT TODAY
Night Shift spent two years growing into (and then out of) their first Everett location. With increasing demand and production, they finally made the move. In May of 2014, they opened the doors to their current 30,000 sq. ft. space. They now work with a 20BBL brewing system, a field of 20BBL, 40BBL, and 60BBL fermenters, and a growing collection of oak barrels. On a daily basis, NIght Shift Brewery welcome guests into their 2500 sq. ft. Taproom so that they can share their beers, space, and story. Their product is currently self-distributed to a group of retail and restaurant partners in MA and will hopefully be in other nearby states by 2017!
