Castle Danger Brewery

The North Shore’s first brewery! From a busting at the seams, brewed in a converted garage, local favorite to a hugely popular Taproom and Brewery with Growlers, pints and cans, Castle Danger offers seasonal favorites and classic including IPAs, lagers, Belgians, stouts, and ales. My favorite – the Cream Ale on draught.

Check out live music weekends and events throughout the week. They offer pretzels and chips and salsa and encourage you to order in from a local restaurant and have delivery and take out menus at the bar. Brewery tours are Fridays and Saturdays at 5pm and last around 30 minutes for groups up to 20 people; $3 per person. All proceeds are donated to the local food shelf and a beer is included. No private tours.

Open noon to 10pm Friday and Saturday and noon to 9pm Sunday through Thursday.
