Mighty Squirrel Opens Craft Brewery and Taproom in Waltham, MA

Hingham, MA - Phase Zero Design, a national architecture, interior design and planning services firm, is pleased to announce completion of The Mighty Squirrel Taproom and Brewery in Waltham, MA, at 411 Waverley Oaks Rd.


The 23,000 square foot building consists of a 15,000 square foot upper level and an 8,000 square foot lower level. The lower level consists of a storage area for the fermenter tanks, while the upper level is divided into a 10,000 square foot taproom and production area, as well as a 5,000 square foot retail space allocated for partner, Central Rock.

It was great to work with a team that was open to design opportunities and appreciate the design process. Sometimes I think they thought we were crazy but they had trust in the process. Mighty Squirrel has a dynamic, flexible and functional space that will adapt with their need and the needs of the customer.
— Mark Joyce AIA, Associate Principal

The Taproom and Central Rock will be separated by a glass partition, allowing customers the unique experience of “Living Mighty Moments” while they enjoy their brews.  Centered in the Taproom is a 5,000 square foot “brew deck” which houses the production area, allowing for views of the brewing and canning process to be visible from all angles. The Taproom also features two bars, a retail space and coffee bar, and a reservable area for private functions. The glass partition featuring the neighboring tenant, Central Rock, will be visible from the reservable section of the Taproom. Two patios stem from the Taproom acting as lounge spaces, with the main patio featuring outdoor games and a firepit.

The coffee shop, in partnership with Atomic Café, will be brewing their own cold brew coffee from own 7 AM - 3 PM while the Taproom will be open from 11 AM - 10 PM on weekdays, and will stay open until 11 PM on the weekend.
