American Fresh Beer Garden in Somerville’s Assembly Row Has Closed for Good (Again)

by Marc Hurwitz

A Somerville beer garden that closed for good last fall only to reopen this spring has shut down once again, and it may indeed be a permanent closure this time around.

According to a Facebook post from the place, American Fresh Beer Garden at Assembly Row in Somerville is now shuttered, with co-owner Caitlin Jewell saying "Goodbye #beergarden Thank you @assemblyrow for the encore season. Thank you to hundreds of staff over four years and the 100,000+ guests we served." Jewell mentions in the comment within the thread that this is a "permanent" closure, but follows up by saying "we'd like to do another someday."
