Late last fall, a local brewery opened a seasonal beer garden in an historic structure that had been home to another beer garden the year before. Now there is a plan to make the current beer hall a permanent one.
According to an article from Universal Hub, Turtle Swamp Brewing is seeking a zoning change in order to make its beer garden in the Roslindale Substation permanent, with a community meeting taking place on the issue on May 8. The post mentions that the brewery would need a variance for a brewery-related use, as the space is currently zoned for restaurant use; a restaurant called Third Rail was hoping to open there at one point but those plans never came to be.
Last winter, Trillium had a beer garden in the substation while also having an outdoor beer garden on the Rose Kennedy Greenway in downtown Boston during the warmer months (including this coming season).
