No, it’s not “Janie’s Got a Gose” or “Dude (Looks Like a Lager).” But come Friday, you’ll be able to sip an Aerosmith-inspired brew at a brand-new South Shore autumn beer garden.
A partnership between mobile craft beer bar Tapped Beer Truck and Braintree beer shop Craft Beer Cellar, the Braintree Beer Garden will be open next to Braintree City Hall every Saturday from 12 p.m. to 5 p.m. from Sept. 8 through Oct. 27, according to a press release.
Saturday’s debut will be highlighted by the debut of Braintree-based Widowmaker Brewing’s Toxic Twins IPA, a “smooth and creamy IPA with tropical fruit aroma and resiny hops” that is a “tacit tribute” to Aerosmith’s Steven Tyler and Joe Perry, according to the release.
The beer garden, located a short walk from the MBTA Red Line’s Braintree Station, will also feature beers from several other South Shore brewers, including Weymouth’s Article 15 and Barrel House Z, Norwood’s Castle Island, Marshfield’s Stellwagen, and Scituate’s Untold.
Widowmaker brewer and founder Ryan Lavery made clear that the beer’s name isn’t just about Tyler and Perry, who earned the Toxic Twins moniker early in their careers due to their rampant drug use and vicious fights.
“More importantly for us Toxic Twins IPA is a tribute to the lifelong friendship I have with our taproom manager Derek Ta,” Lavery said in the release.
