2023 After-Work Drinks

Editors’ Choice

Common Craft, Burlington

This unique space, once a Sears department store, is now a sort of craft beverage food hall. Currently, four artisanal producers—brewers Exhibit "A" and Idle Hands, Massachusetts-based distributor of artisanal wine Vineyard Road, and distiller Deacon Giles—have lounges surrounding a great room with additional seating. You can stroll between them freely while enjoying a menu of scratch-made comfort food. There’s plenty to do—Skee-Ball and shelves full of board games inside and a large outdoor space with lawn games, Adirondack chairs, and a twice-monthly cornhole league. Special events like an Oktoberfest celebration slated for September keep the party going. 75 Middlesex Tpke., Burlington, 781-365-0513,

Granite Coast Brewing Co., Peabody

The crafty tap room at this nano-brewer hosts everything from calligraphy, knitting groups, and trivia to food pop-ups. Families are always welcome, as are leashed dogs, both in the tap room and on the narrow, heated patio. Drop in to unwind over carefully made beers from a wide range of styles, and stay for the chill vibes. 77B Main St., Peabody, 978-595-2775,
