I went to this location on a Thursday mid October during pandemic.Overall the location looks pretty awesome, sleek interior with a role up garage door to let in the air and views. Although during the pandemic the inside was closed and we were relegated to a tent outside (understandable). When I arrived there were only 2 other couples. I asked an employee how the situation worked, and they told me to sit down and order a beer through the app and it would be brought out. I THINK they said all beer orders needed food as well (masks make being heard hard sometimes) and there was a food menu so I planned on getting some loaded fries. The menu looked pretty varied and solid for food. This is where I started having a little trouble. The tables each have their own QR code or site link where you order and pay. The site link wouldnt activate so I had to get the QR reader. The menu only had 5-6 beers, tap water and a hat. So I order my beer which comes to my table in 30-60 seconds. Surprisingly fast. Not sure why I couldnt just order a beer from someone in person while I wore a mask, the ordering process was too long. Possibly to try to stay with only e transactions? So I tried the food menu after which wouldnt even load, so who knows what was going on there. So I drank my beer in the very quiet tent. Could use music or something. With no employee interaction and a low customer count it just felt uninviting.To the beer: I had the Rhino Tears , what was billed as "A juicy and sessionable New England IPA with a soft mouthfeel. Aromatic of lemon, stone fruit, tangerine and peach." I didn't get much of that, while it wasn't offensive like many NEIPAs out there the flavor was actually a bit thin, watery. It did also have a bit of that hop burn from the hop particulate. I only had the one beer. With the atmosphere and beer it didn't cause me to desire a second at the time.TLDR: I'm giving it a 3 because I think it could have potential when back to normal and the beer I had wasn't great but wasn't horrible. I think their pandemic operational model needs a little tweak (I know any business right now has a challenge). I would like to give other beers a try and see if at another time that can change my review.

A brand new hip vibrant and elegant place with nice crowd. Ten beers on tap, very tasty and fresh. Comfortable cheats and sofas, relaxed atmosphere, quick and pleasant service. I like to be here

Found this place by serendipity. Great selection of styles lacking in most local brewpubs. Try one of the excellent stouts.

Love the Rhino Ale! Awesome spot

Great new space on Rantoul street for a local brewery. Big garage style doors roll up and open out to the street. There is a bunch of varied seating from high tops to couches and they have a projector rolling on the wall. Oh yeah and the beers are good too. Had the rhino which I hadn't seen before and it was as advertised- sessionable IPA. Will be back with the wife and kid next time.

Awesome new brewery in downtown Beverly!! Cool space and the beers are fantastic! I loved the milk stout, the crop rotation IPA, and the Belgian wheat. Definitely coming back soon.
