Lord Hobo Brewing Company (LHBCo) has officially opened the doors to their highly anticipated, renovated, on-site brewery taproom in Woburn, Massachusetts. Dubbed The Humble Castle, the 3,500 square foot space will feature 40 tap lines, taproom-only draft and can releases, craft pizzas, entertainment, a retail store, and more. New hours for the taproom will be 11 a.m. – 12 a.m., daily; the kitchen will begin serving food at 3 p.m.
Upcoming programming for the taproom includes yappy hours for dog owners, trivia, bring your own vinyl nights, keep the pint nights, and industry nights, amongst other events.
“It’s about effing time,” says Daniel Lanigan, founder of the brewery. “Our team, friends of the brewery, and fans will now have a proper place to call home and hangout. They’ll get the same experience that we have brought to craft beer enthusiasts at events far and wide.”
During its first three years, LHBCo. grew to be crowned one of the 100 largest craft beer breweries in the country and among the top five largest in Massachusetts.
“From the beginning we wanted to make high-quality beers widely available,” says Lanigan. “But we realized we also had an opportunity and desire to better serve our fans at the mothership.”
With a capacity of 180 people, the taproom also features a semi-private event space for hosted events. An expansive 40 draft line system will feature Lord Hobo’s core offerings, limited and brewery-only releases, and rotating guest taps.
National and local talent will head the rosters for live music nights, an artist residency program will featuring artwork from international and local artists, and a merchandise shop will carry classic LHBCo gear and guest merchandise. Two miles from the Middlesex Fells Reservation, the taproom also promises to serve runners, hikers, bikers, and adventure seekers as the ultimate watering hole.
“Daniel [Lanigan] has always created community hubs and connected people to better beer experiences,” says Kate Ballenger, taproom general manager.
As a longtime publican, Lanigan has previously built famed craft beer bars Moan & Dove in Amherst, Mass. and Lord Hobo Bar in Cambridge, a separate business from the Woburn restaurant.
“At only three-years-old, the brewery is like the younger, cooler cousin of the bar,” says Ballenger. “The new taproom will help us drive growth in 2019 and beyond for our brewery and brand. For those who love the original beer bar in Cambridge and love Boomsauce but have never been to the brewery, the Humble Castle is now a must-visit destination for them — especially for craft beer drinkers near Woburn.”
