2015 Winner: Hopsters

Kids have Build-A-Bear; grown-ups get Build-A-Beer. (We totally win.) This Newton bar and self-brewing setup, popular with corporate parties, allows lay beer lovers to create their own case from start to finish: You’ll customize a recipe, mix your barrel full of malts and hops, and even email them a label design to smack on the finished product. Less ambitious? Relax with flatbreads, a ploughman’s board, whiskey flights and some of Hopsters’ own rare styles of suds.
