Bevana Brewery + Taproom is a platform that connects Artisan beverage maker with the consumer they would otherwise be unable to reach. We partner with small to medium size beverage makers to keep the Craft in Craft Beverages and to provide customers with the best liquid, no matter where they are. The Taproom has 32 draft lines that are home to our Craft beer partners, UpDog Kombucha and ciders. We are located in the old Newton firehouse, which allows us to have open garage doors for inside and outside seating, when weather allows. We are available for special events, fundraisers or small gatherings! Spend time in our unique building with friends, drinking great Craft Beverages, playing games and learning about our growing brand portfolio.
