Growing up in Liverpool, England, Lee was no stranger to good beer. When he came to the US in 1996, he missed the cask ales and other beer varieties he’d known and loved in the UK. Eventually, he began brewing his own beer at home, and before long, he’d gone from novice to passionate craft beer aficionado.
Leaving his career in corporate learning and development behind, Lee decided to make the leap and create the kind of craft beer “space” he’d been looking for – a community brewery that brings people together to experiment and create unique craft beers, and learn more about brewing beer in general. And most importantly, enjoy yourself in the process!
Our equipment is state-of-the art and whatever your taste, you can rest assured that any beer brewed at Hopsters will be hand-crafted, all-natural and made with locally-sourced ingredients. We’ve partnered with local food producers for all of our ingredients and charcuterie meats and make a point of supporting local businesses and other craft breweries.
Most of all, we’re about having fun! Handcrafting beer is a bit of science and a lot of art, so whether you come in with a large group or a smaller circle of friends, we want to create an atmosphere that makes you want to hang out, learn and have fun. Simply put, we want to be the center for craft beer awareness in Boston.
