FAQ

What is your Taproom like?

Our customers tell us that our Taproom, is comfortable and inviting, that the space is cool and the atmosphere is friendly. The building has an Industrial vibe as it was originally built as a part of Easton’s Historical Shovel Manufacturing operations and later housed other manufacturing businesses.  We have 2 rooms, one that we refer to as the Taproom and the other as the Biergarten Room.  We have communal tables that fill on a first come first served basis.

Our servers provide full table service for our food and drinks, so you don’t have to go to the bar to get served. Check out our Gallery for pictures of the Brewery

Is your Taproom the only place to get your Beer?

While we highly encourage you to come to the Taproom to taste our beers, sample our food and interact with our great staff, our beer is available at some local bars, restaurants and Liquor Stores in the area.  We also have a distributor that helps get our Beer to places that we can’t reach ourselves.  Check out our Beer Finder to find locations that carry Shovel Town Beer.  Also, please ask your local Liquor Store Owner to carry Shovel Town Brewery Beer.

What is your growler policy?

In accordance with MA General Law and recent advisory from the ABCC, Breweries are only allowed to fill up to a 64 oz Growler that is devoid of any other Breweries markings. We will fill Growler that conform to the requirements but we will affix a removable Shovel Town Brewery Label to the Growler at time of filling. Come by during any of our regular hours to get your compliant growler filled!

How do you sell your beer?

We usually have 12 different delicious Beers on Tap at any one time.  In the full-service Taproom, we offer full pours and flights.  To go, we offer 32 and 64 oz Growlers and typically have a selection of 3-4 different type of our Beer available in cans or special release bottles.
