Craft Brewery Profile: Blue Hills Brewery
Blue Hill Brewery prides itself on great-tasting, affordably-priced craft beer. They are in the process of relocating to a tap room in the Canton area.
What’s on Tap?
Some of the interesting craft beers Blue Hills Brewery is proud to offer include:
- Black Hops. A black hybrid pale ale modeled after the Schwarzbier from Germany. It uses hops for bitterness instead of roasted malts, featuring tones of chocolate malt and citrus.
- Tree Beer. Fans of Boston Hardcore rock will definitely want to try a bottle of Tree Beer, named for the eponymous hardcore band. A collaboration of Tree frontman Dave Tree and the Blue Hill Brewery Head Brewmaster, Tree Beer is the common man’s craft beer, a sturdy pale ale with an appealing yellow body and aromatic hops.
- Blue Hill IPA. Every great brewery has to have a great flagship IPA, and this is Blue Hill Brewery’s, a smoother-than-you-might-expect India Pale Ale with a deep amber color and notes of citrus.
- Quarter Mile Double IPA. If you’re looking for an IPA with a little more bite, give Blue Hill Brewery’s Quarter Mile Double IPA a whirl. This beer is made with a powerful assortment of hops, including Goldings, Liberty, Summit and Nugget.
- Imperial Red IPA. Another Double IPA with a kick, it’s the sweet combination of red ale and IPA, with double the hops for serious IPA flavor.
The Blue Hill Brewery also offers an impressive array of seasonal beers. You don’t want to miss these, so mark your calendars now for great seasonal craft brews like:
- Watermelon Wheat, a crisp Hefeweizen that’s available from March to September. This brew with just the right amount of sweetness comes from Blue Hill’s Wamaptuck Wheat beer with some all-natural extract thrown in to give it that classic fruity hef taste.
- Imperial Oktoberfest. Naturally, you can only get this one in October (okay, September, too). But if you’re a fan of Oktoberfest, you don’t want to miss this Marzenbier German-style lager with Munich and Vienna malts combined with Hallertau hops.
- Dunkelweizen. The dark side of hefeweizen. Available from September through February, this is basically a hef with dark roasted malts to add some chocolate tones.
- Three Peak Imperial Stout. If you’re a stout fan, grab this brew from October through February, for a roasted malt taste in a creamy smooth ale.
