Battle Road is a hop, skip, and jump away from Amory’s Tomb (Maynard), and a short drive from other breweries and tap rooms: Rapscallion (Concord), True West (Concord), Ground Effect Brewing (Hudson), and Medusa Brewing Company (Hudson).

They do private events. Someone hosted their wedding reception at the brew house. Not a novel concept, but an awesome one.

I think so? I haven’t seen any, but I haven’t been looking for it.
