American Fresh Assembly, Slumbrew & A 5k Fun Run/Walk

Have I told you lately how much I love Slumbrew?


Well if I haven't then let me do that now. What's not to like about a local Somerville brewery putting out delicious beer and rockin' a sweet running team - the Slumbrew Happy Soles - who welcome folks of all paces?


Nothing is not to like. Does that make sense? Did I use the right negative and not a double negative? Eh... moving on!

If you haven't heard, the lovely brains - Caitlin and Jeff - behind Slumbrew have opened up a hot spot at Somerville's Assembly Row.

American Fresh

American Fresh can be found on the corner lot of Assembly Row across from FUJI and Off Saks 5th Avenue Off 5th.

I headed over there on Opening Night - Wednesday, November 19 - to celebrate a running milestone (hitting 900 miles for the year - pictured above).

American Fresh is actually constructed out of old cargo containers. Cool right? Well since it is frigid in the Boston area in the winter, the whole area is covered by a large heated tent so we can enjoy good local beer into the winter months. Woo!

In addition to serving amazing beer...


... American Fresh also offers a great menu featuring some great local finds.

You can also support other local artists and companies by shopping local like Q's Nuts, TAZA Chocolate and more.
