Night Shift Brewery Opening 2 Beer Gardens on Charles River

One will be located on the Esplanade and the other in Brighton

Night Shift Brewing is planning to open two beer gardens on the Charles River in Boston this summer.

The Everett-based company announced this week that the first location will open in early August on Boston's Esplanade, near the Hatch Shell. It will be the summer home for Night Shift's new 24-tap beer trailer.

The second location will also open in August at Herter Park in Brighton, alongside a 350-seat amphitheater.

The new beer gardens are the result of a partnership with the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation and the Esplanade Association.

"We couldn’t be more excited to launch two Owl's Nest beer gardens along the Charles this summer," Night Shift co-founder Michael Oxton said in a statement. "You have greenery in every direction, the river flowing by, the city at your back, the sun on the horizon - what more could you need? A beer, of course."

Night Shift beers will be prominently featured, but the beer gardens will also feature beers from other craft breweries, wine and non-alcoholic options. There will also be regular food truck visits and on-site games for guests to enjoy at both locations.
