How much beer do I make?

The average yield is approximately 7.5 gallons of beer. To put this in perspective, this is about two and a half to three cases of beer, and equates to between 60-72 twelve ounce bottles.

How long does it take?

The brewing process takes about 2 hours, and you will return within two weeks for bottling. Additionally, we offer a bottling and labeling service for corporate or large groups.

How many people can I bring to brew?

The brewing area can become very crowded, and we therefore ask that you limit your group to 3 or fewer people per kettle of beer that is being brewed. Larger groups may be approved on a case-by-case basis, just drop us a line at 617.916.0752.

How much do bottles cost and how do I book a bottling session?

Bottles and labels are included in the price of your brew-session.  So we can prepare your beer for bottling, please book your bottling session at least three days in advance of when you would like to come in. Schedule your bottling session here on the Hopsters’ website a maximum of two weeks from the day you brewed your beer.

Can I reuse bottles for future batches?

Yes! Make sure that you remove the labels/rinse your bottles thoroughly after use, and you can reuse them multiple times. When properly taken care of and sanitized, bottles are a one-time cost and we’ll give you a five dollar discount for each case you reuse or return.

Can I bring my own bottles?

Yes you can! We will run them through the sanitation cycle of our bottle washing machine prior to your appointment.

Can I customize my label?

Absolutely! For 12 oz. bottle labels please provide a 2.5” wide x 2.5″ high graphic design of your choice. Please email your design to [email protected] and let us know if you prefer our green or gold template.  For a copy of the label template click here.
