Craft beer in Newton and sausages in Somerville

Hopster’s Brew & Boards, if its website and Facebook page are to be trusted, will be opening soon in Newton Corner at 292 Centre St.
It will be a place to learn about the making of craft beer, and, we assume, to sample a few. It is also
looking for a head brewer, according to a job posting: “We are opening a state of the art community brewery in Newton Corner, MA where members of the
public can come brew and
bottle their own hand
crafted beer.” When it will open is not clear yet.


Hampshire House Corp­oration, the company that
runs Hampshire House,
75 Chestnut, 75 on
Liberty Wharf
, Cheers Beacon Hill, and Cheers
Faneuil Hall
, plans to add yet another eatery to its restaurant empire as long as the plan gets official
approval from the city, Eater reports. The proposed
restaurant, 75 on Cambridge, which would be
located on the former site of Grampy’s gas station (209 Cambridge St.), could open in the fall of 2014, seating between 120 and 130 people, according to the Beacon Hill Times.

Sausages, pretzels, and Pilsner will be the staples of Bronwyn in Somerville, a restaurant and bar from the owners of T.W. Foods in Cambridge. Husband-and-wife duo Tim (above) and Bronwyn Wiechmann plan to pay homage to their German roots by serving food and drink inspired from the region, with items including Bavarian sausages, riesling sauerkraut, and foie gras. Expect Eastern and Central European beers, but American beers in the European style will also be available, along with craft cocktails, wines, and schnapps. The decor will include velvet seating and iron chandeliers (belonging to the Wiechmanns’ family) and a biergarten will be open from 5 p.m. to midnight.
