Beginning this Saturday, Night Shift Brewing is opening its Allston & Charles River Esplanade beer garden locations.

Dubbed “Owl’s Nest” the beer gardens offer family (and dog!) friendly spaces for beer lovers alike. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19, it’s been tough for the brewery to kick off their beer gardens.

The Esplanade location of the Owl’s Nest is a great meet-up spot after a run, or to catch-up after work, and the Owl’s Nest in Allston is located on the Charles River.

According to an article on, the owners of Night Shift said that the brewery will be partnering up with other wineries and breweries for a more robust offering. While the Owl’s Nest may not have their full suite of offerings right away, they’ll have a handful of their core product on draft from the start.

This weekend, the Owl’s Nest is open on Saturday from 2 PM – 10 PM EST, and Sundays from 12 PM – 8 PM. After the weekend, it’ll expand to the opening on Wednesdays and Thursdays from 4 PM – 10 PM.
