PRESS RELEASE / May 5, 2023 (Boston, MA) – Night Shift Brewing announces the reopening of their beer gardens at Esplanade on May 10 and Herter Park on May 11. The Night Shift Beer Gardens are the ideal spot to gather with friends and enjoy great drinks under the sun. The OG locations at the Esplanade and Herter Park are fan favorites along the Charles River.
Since 2012, Night Shift Brewing has relied on a “craft better” mindset for production of their beer, cider, coffee, wine and hard seltzer. The wide spectrum of products and styles that Night Shift Brewing offers can be consumed in a myriad of ways, so it’s only natural that creating fun destinations for their passionate community of loyal customers to connect and enjoy their beverages is a must.
To kick off the opening of beer garden season, Night Shift Brewing is celebrating with the following new and limited releases rolling out all month long:
Garden Party – a 7% hazy IPA available in draft only at the Night Shift Brewing Lovejoy Wharf taproom and now at the Beer Gardens. It’s a hazy IPA with notes of juicy melon and citrus. It’s a nicely balanced IPA with Nelson Sauvin, Mosaic and Galaxy Hops.
Granita Weisse – a 7% sour ale with blood orange, guava and pineapple. This blended sour ale pours sunset orange with a clean and crisp body. On the aroma there are notes of grapefruit and orange juice, and on the taste there are thirst quenching notes of grapefruit, mango and sweet OJ.
The Night Shift Beer Gardens offer their flagship beers such as: Whirlpool (New England Pale Ale), Santilli (American IPA), Fluffy (New England IPA), 87 (New England Double IPA), Day Lite (Light Lager with Orange Peel), Lime Lite (Light Lager with Lime), Nite Lite (Light Lager), rotating seasonal small batches and sour ales,Hoot hard seltzer (rotating original and tropical flavors), Night Shift Brewing’s wine (Gold Prism Chardonnay, Pink Prism Rosé, Red Prism red blend, Purple Prism Pinot Noir, Brut Fizzylifter sparkling Brut, Rosé Fizzylifter sparkling rosé) and non-alcoholic beverages such as Night Shift Brewing’s cold brew coffee, non alcoholic beer from Athletic Brewing Co. and Hoplark, and Spindrift Seltzers are also available.
A rotating line up of food trucks will be rolling through the Esplanade and Allston locations this season, and kicks off with The Hummus Shop at the Esplanade on May 10 and Daddy’s Bonetown Burgers at Herter Park on May 11. Guests are welcome to bring outside food to enjoy with Night Shift beverages as well.

Night Shift Brewing has its roots in a small kitchen on Josephine Ave in Somerville, MA. In 2007, Co-Founders Rob, Mike, and Michael began homebrewing at night, making beers for friends and family that they hoped were more delicious than the commercial options on shelves. In 2012, the trio moved their hobby to a small Everett warehouse and launched the business. They relied on a “craft better” mindset and their passionate community of loyal customers to quickly grow their staff, production, and distribution in the local market. Today, Night Shift Brewing operates locations in Everett and Boston MA, and distributes beer throughout MA, CT, ME, NH, NY, PA, RI, VT, NJ, MD and DC. It is currently one of the top 100 craft breweries in the country by volume.
