Vegan brew lobby PlantPub intends to open this year as delivery just business serving the Boston, Somerville, and Cambridge territories with plans to in the long run open as a completely operational lager beer hall.
The idea was created by founders of Quincy’s former vegan beer hall pop-up Rewild—Boston’s first vegan beer hall and bistro that worked from October 2018 until a year ago in a transitory space in Quincy, MA.
Before the pandemic, McAuley was searching for a perpetual space in the more prominent Boston territory for Rewild and decided to turn the idea into reality during these difficult occasions.
“Our initial goal, like at Rewild, was to bring healthier food to people in a fun environment,” PlantPub co-founder Pat McAuley told Eater.
“For us, that was a beer hall. We love the beer hall environment. If you want to come in, have six IPAs, eat two burgers, and watch the Pats game, great.
But you can also come in, drink a kombucha or a non-alcoholic IPA, and eat a little healthier, too.”

It is a strange time, and our hearts go out to all those affected, in particular our frontline workers and fellow food industry friends here in Boston. We’ve considered keeping our planned project on hold, but that doesn’t sit right with us. We believe what we’re doing is important, now more than ever. So, onward we go. We’ll be launching PlantPub in the coming weeks, beginning with delivery only. We will be providing some support and jobs to those in our industry while (safely!) bringing you kickass plant-based pub food at home. Food that’s better for us and better for the world. Stay safe and stay tuned. 🌱 🍻 Sign up for updates at plantpub.us #plantpub #plantbased #boston #bostonvegan
