Somerville Brewing Company — commonly referred to as Slumbrew — opened a new brewhouse at Assembly Row this weekend.

The public opening of American Fresh Brewhouse went smoothly Friday, only facing slightly long waits during peak hours, according to owner Caitlin Jewell. Jewell said she was “over the moon” at the opening-night response to the newly expanded menu.

Before Friday’s opening, Slumbrew previously served food and beer from an outdoor tented beer garden at Assembly Row, as well as at the microbrewery’s taproom in Boynton Yards, a small industrial neighborhood southeast of Union Square.

Slumbrew’s new Assembly Row location is down the street from where the now-closed beer garden once stood, and it’s just a short walk from the Assembly Row T stop on the Orange Line. The brewhouse spans approximately 4,000 square feet and features metal furniture, wooden tables, and 24 draft lines. It will be open daily from 11 a.m. to midnight.
