Frequently Asked Questions

do you take reservations?

We do not take reservations at either of our taprooms – both spaces are all first come first serve. We do offer full buy-outs of our back taproom at Broadway, intended for groups of 50 – 100, and upstairs or downstairs at CX, intended for groups of up to 180. If you’re interested in either 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 at our Broadway taproom. We often have pop up food events in the evenings at Broadway, check out our events calendar for the full schedule. We offer a selection of cheese and charcuterie boards at our CX taproom. You’re always welcome to BYOF, Bring Your Own Food, to either space!

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 at either taproom location. There are many metered and non-metered spots along Broadway, where we are also half a mile from both the Central and Kendall Red Line T Stops, and directly along the Broadway bus route. Parking is incredibly limited at our CX location, so we’d suggest walking, biking, Uber-ing, or taking public transport – the Lechmere T-stop is right nearby, the 69 bus runs directly to the area, and there’s a Blue Bike station right next door. There’s also a parking garage at 222 Jacobs Street; it’s not free, but it’s better than lapping around the neighborhood for half an hour looking for a spot while all your friends are already drinking.

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 any indoor taproom areas. 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… Dogs are also welcome in our outdoor seating areas at CX, open seasonally.

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.

can I purchase kegs for my home / office?

Yes! Please fill out the form found here, and we’ll get back to you shortly with availability.
