You would never expect a high quality brewery to be in the middle of a market and ice cream shop, but that’s exactly where you’ll find Start Line Brewery in Hopkinton, MA.
Start Line’s beers, to me, are some of the most high quality beers around. The Hazelnut Cold Brew tastes like something that I could drink for breakfast instead of coffee. The smooth hazelnut flavors remind me of a Guinness but with much more flavor. Honestly, if I could get away with bringing this to work as coffee, I’d probably survive my job much better anyways. Drunk me is always a more productive and happy me , so who would argue against that.
The Honey Pale Ale was just that. A Pale Ale that’s bite was calmed by the honey flavor. Very drinkable with a much more honey subdued taste. The Hop Load IPA bursted with grapefruit, papaya and citrus. The sequel, the Hop Load Citra was actually a calmer taste that the original. Both very good and drinkable for the summer.
For a brewery with flavors and beers like these, i hope to see this brewery expand a lot more and have a space of their own. And I definitely can’t wait til they reach a place where they can distribute as I NEED that Hazelnut Cold Brew Stout.
