Well, Mighty Squirrel brewery opened in Waltham yesterday. I’m not a big beer drinker but they apparently came to fame from brewing a beer with protein in it (sounds awful but . . . .they make other beers now too).
They opened in a huge strip mall on Waverley Oaks. It is a huge space and the mall has tons of parking - none of that mattered on opening night (friday). We tried to check it out but the parking lot was overflowing with people circling for spots - the inside was wall to wall people and there was a waiting line to get in the door (it is floor to ceiling glass so the crowed was easy to see). They had a live band playing inside.
We turned around and left without getting out of the car - just too insanely busy for me. But happy for them.
From online articles, they are planning on having ipads around that you can order food through - apparently City Streets (at the other end of the small) is supporting their food service. I hope they weren’t doing food opening night but I don’t know - no one would have been eating in either space with a crowd that size.
I would like to get in and see the space. I’m always happy when my neck of the woods gets something new and different (not that brew houses are new or different at this point but they are for our little area).
