BeerWorks – a local chain of breweries and brewpubs – announced their permanent closure on Monday.

“Sad to say but we’ve brewed and served our last beers,” read a statement posted on the company’s website and signed by President Joe Slesar. “We’ve decided to pack it in due to the pandemic and all that.”

According to BrewBound, BeerWorks first opened in 1992 at their location across the street from Fenway Park. The brewery became popular there – especially during Red Sox games – and soon opened more locations.

BeerWorks eventually expanded to Salem, Hingham, and Framingham, as well as Boston’s North Station. All locations have been closed since March 16, 2020, according to the company.

The Salem, Hingham, and Framingham locations were shut down permanently due to the pandemic, with the initial hope of the Boston locations reopening.


“We will miss you and the many years of fun we had bringing you fresh local beer and food,” the statement said. “BEERWORKS was proud to serve you.”
