The Red Sox aren’t the only ones playing games on Lansdowne Street these days. Sleek, multi-level brewpub Cheeky Monkey Brewing Co. opened last month in the old Tequila Rain space, offering six signature craft beers brewed in-house (plus a host of other local suds), a menu of cross-cultural street food and games including billiards, shuffleboard, pingpong and a Zoltar fortune-telling machine a la Big. We checked in with brewery manager Jason McCloud for some stats on the house beers you can be drinking while you play. 

3.9 percent ABV of the Blood Orange Wheat Lager, the lowest on tap

5 copper holding tanks installed above the bar to hold house brews

7.2 percent ABV of the Double Play Double IPA, the highest on tap

10 barrel tanks in action per brewing cycle

32.4 kilograms of hops used in-house, which breaks down to:

• 5.65 kg of galaxy hops
• 8.8 kg of centennial hops
• 5.4 kg of citra hops
• 8.5 kg of cascade hops
• 4 kg of simcoe hops


1,240 gallons of beer brewed in-house per brewing cycle
