Beer Gardens

During the warmer months (May-October), we welcome fans into our seasonal beer gardens – one on Boston’s Esplanade, one in Allston at Herter Park. These beer gardens offer a welcoming guest experience, with a variety of our beer, hard seltzer, and wine products, as well as non-alcoholic beverage options, and snacks. We also aim to have a food truck on-site each day that we are open!

Beer Garden Locations

Esplanade (Boston)

Located right along the Charles River, our Esplanade Location is a perfect summer spot to hang after work, relax after a run, or catch up with friends.


Between Berkeley & Clarendon Streets along the Storrow Lagoon (use the Dartmouth Street footbridge for access)


Wednesday – Friday: 4-10 pm
Saturday: noon – 10 pm
Sunday: noon – 8 pm

Allston (Herter Park)

There’s no better place to enjoy a beer than right along the river. Blue skies, warm sun, and cold beer make our Allston Owl’s Nest a great family-friendly destination for your summertime adventures.


Thursday – Friday: 4-10 pm
Saturday: noon – 10 pm
Sunday: noon – 6 pm

Space at our locations is available through walk-ins only, reservations are not accepted. If you have a larger group and would like to rent out table space, or book a private event, please contact our Events team!


We love our pups. A city mandate prevents us from actively promoting the allowance dogs at our beer gardens.


We have food trucks available at our Esplanade and Allston locations, as well as snacks available on site. Guests are welcome to bring outside food to enjoy with your Night Shift beverages! A friendly reminder that our gardens are hosted on conservation sites with few trash receptacles so we appreciate any and all help keeping our spaces clean!
