It’s been a long road for Bone Up Brewery to its opening day on Norman Street, but the husband-and-wife team living out their dream are finally ready to open their doors.
“We’re happy to say that after years of planning; a summer of brewing, distributing, and waiting; and many a back-and-forth with the City, we are swingin’ our taproom doors open to the public,” said Jared and Liz Kiraly. “Bone Up’s opening day will be next Saturday, August 27. We’ll be pouring from noon until 11 p.m., and the Bonetown Burgers truck will be slinging patties and munchies in the parking lot. We’ve got a capacity of about 45, with a 12-seat bar and nice cozy vibe with some good music going.”
The brewery is located at 38 Norman St. and is about one block down from the established Night Shift Brewery and around the corner from Short Path Distillery. The opening marks another destination in the Santilli Highway/Norman Street area for what is being called the Fermentation District in Everett.
After opening weekend, Bone Up’s hours will be Fridays and Saturdays from noon-11 p.m., and will expand from there. They will be rolling out games, events, and lots of new beer releases in the coming weeks and can’t wait to share them all with you.
As for the draft list, the flagships (Extra Naked Cream Ale, Key Lime White, Wasted Life IPA, Shut Up Kelly! Robust Porter) will be flowing freely, and the last pints in the world of Bone Smasher Session IPA and Warehouse Ale will be poured until they’re finished.
“We’re also releasing Thrasher, a delightful hoppy wheat ale just beggin’ to be guzzled, to celebrate this momentous occasion,” said the Kiralys. Bone Up is a husband and wife team cranking out unique but approachable beers from its three-barrel brewery and taproom in Everett. Bone Up’s beers celebrate American styles while taking inspiration from old-school Belgian techniques. Many are new spins on old classics, and all are fermented with a house yeast blend for added complexity.
