The Best 15 Kid-Friendly Breweries in and around Boston

A couple of years ago, taking kids to a brewery was unthinkable. But as the world and ourselves, humans, evolve, everything changes, including our perception of what is normal. Of course, there are still breweries that just don’t allow kids or have no kids’ area or entertainment for them. We get it; no kids. However, there are also many options, especially in the Boston area, that are known for being family favorites! Many of these places feature outdoor spaces for the littles to run and play and many games with them in mind. Take a look at these kid-friendly breweries in the Boston area:
