It didn’t take long for the folks at this Cambridge brewery to realize they were going to need a bigger space. Whether it’s the food from local pop-ups, coffee from in-house Longfellows cafe or the weekly trivia nights, this former garage has attracted a large crowd since debuting in late 2016. Thanks to a new additional taproom, there’s even more space for customers to enjoy a signature sour ale like Metric System and a bevy of other suds, such as the Birds of a Feather New England-style IPA and the Ele saison, while lounging on a couch or unwinding at one of the long benches.
