Frequently Asked Questions

do you take reservations?

We do not take reservations in our taproom – our space is all first come first serve. We do offer full buy-outs of our back taproom, intended for groups of 50 – 100. If you’re interested in that offering, please fill out this form and a member of our team will be in touch shortly!

do you serve food?

Pepita Coffee Co. serves their cafe menu weekdays until 3:00 pm, and weekends until 2:00 pm. Outside of those hours, we offer a small taproom snack menu. And we often have pop up food events in the evenings, check out our events calendar for the full schedule. Otherwise you’re always welcome to BYOF, Bring Your Own Food!

are you kid-friendly?

While Lamplighter is a kid friendly establishment, we ask that you use your best judgement when planning a visit with children. On Sundays – Fridays after 6pm, and on Saturdays after 3pm, our taproom is 21+.

do you have parking?

We do not have dedicated parking, but there are many metered and non-metered spots along Broadway. We are half a mile from both the Central and Kendall Red Line T Stops, and directly along the Broadway bus route.

what types of IDs do you accept?

In accordance with state and federal regulations, we accept all forms of US government-issued photo ID, including but not limited to passports, driver’s licenses, state IDs, green cards, etc.

If you’re visiting from another country, we strongly encourage you to bring your passport. Alternative forms of non-US photo ID (e.g., driver’s licenses, passport cards, etc.) are considered on a case by case basis at the discretion of the staff on duty.

what payment methods do you accept?

We take cash, card, Apple Pay, and Google Pay.

are you dog-friendly?

Sadly MA health code won’t permit our furry friends in the taproom. Pups are welcome at our brewery retail area if you’re just grabbing beer to go. In fact, we have a delicious bowl of treats waiting for them there…

can you fill growlers?

We are not currently filling growlers of beer. We do, however, have lots of cans and bottles available to-go at our walk-up retail window.

do you have gluten-free options, wine, seltzer, or cider?

We are only allowed to sell what we brew on premise, which at the moment is only beer: no cider, seltzer, wine, or gluten-free beer. We do have non-alcoholic kombucha and cold-brew for our gluten-free friends.

do you support grassroots orgs, nonprofits, fundraisers, or charitable causes?

We do! Fill out this form and we’ll be in touch.
