Lamplighter “Werewolves of Cambridge” Porter - Cambridge, MA
Werewolves of Cambridge is an approachable Porter brewed with English pale malt and a wide range of crystal malts. Leading with aromas of caramel, coffee, and cocoa, this deep brown ale is medium-bodied and smooth, balancing sweet and roasty malt character with a trace of piney bitterness. Deliciously drinkable with plenty of toasty, chocolatey richness, this beer is bound to get you howling. Named after Warren Zevon’s classic hit, Werewolves of London. Awooooo!
Lamplighter is a brewery and taproom located in downtown Cambridge. Their focus is on aroma-packed and flavor-driven beers, with an emphasis on New England IPAs, barrel-aged sours, and special seasonal. They brew a variety of one-off batches that allow them to pursue their various whims, and they don’t shy away from funk, twists on tradition, and unique ingredients.
Lamplighter has a 10,000 sq. ft. facility that used to be Metric Systems, a wonderful neighborhood auto repair shop owned by a father and son team. They took a chance in 2015 and chose to lease the building to a start-up rather than sell to a developer and opened our doors to the public in fall of 2016.
