2017 Winner: Aeronaut Brewing Company


Some microbrewers, we must admit, veer toward the insufferably self-serious. Not Aeronaut. This Somerville suds maker is committed to its craft, but its production facility/taproom also hosts daily events that demonstrate a desire to be a fun hub—not just a place to wax esoteric about hops and malts. Examples: near-nightly live music, visits from food trucks and artisan food-makers (including a “chocolatier in residence”), film screenings and weekly Sunday community picnics. Cheers, Aeronaut.
