It’s been a bit since we’ve talked beer. Don’t worry, it certainly doesn’t mean we haven’t been hard at work in the mean time brewing fresh batches of beer and keeping the tanks filled. Now that we’re all back with our game faces on to close out the summer, I wanted to shed our spotlight ... Read More
Idle Hands Craft Ales is an American brewery from Malden, Massachusetts.
Our Belgian-inspired ales are developed among some of the finest breweries and craft brewers in the country. You may have tried these styles through other brewers, but we’re sure you will find that little something extra in our offerings. Choose from our regular line up of year-round offerings or from our seasonal and specialty releases.
Why Belgian Inspired?
Belgian beer dates back to the Middle Ages when it was only produced in monasteries. Over 500 years and 500 beers later, the depth and breadth of Belgian beers is tremendous with most of the popular styles and brands still brewed in Belgium. Today, Belgian beers are frequently paired with a variety of food offerings to complement and enhance the flavors of both.
As the rise of the craft beer and locavore movements coincide, we hope that Idle Hands becomes a local favorite and mainstay. We offer an array of Belgian beers to provide refreshment, complement a meal, and most importantly, keep those idle hands from making the devil’s playground!
It’s an exciting week here for us at Idle Hands with two of our best selling releases dropping into cans tomorrow (Along with having our neighbors at Dom’s grilling on the patio!!), rather than take the focus away from those beers, I’d like to shine the spotlight on one of the components that we focus on with ...

It’s been far too long since we’ve seen a product of our mixed culture program, Funky Town. While I would normally be apologetic for delays, there is no rushing or scheduling when it comes to releasing quality mixed fermentation beers. The beer will tell you when it’s ready. With that said, I’m excited to announce ... Read More
Hey all! What a great weekend that was! With all this great patio weather, I couldn’t help but notice that we blew through our stock of Kill Your Idles: Spring Flowers and the last kegs of P-Funk. With that it mind, our production team got into hustle mode and cranked out a fresh batch of ... Read More
For this week’s Brewer’s Spotlight, we are shining the light on one of the original beers that we brewed at Idle Hands, Blanche de Grâce. Blanche (as it is affectionately known) is our interpretation of the classic Belgian Wit or White ale. We added this beer to our lineup back in the Spring of 2012 ... Read More
Hope everyone had a restful, reflective and fun long weekend! I wanted to take this week to shine our spotlight on a beer that doesn’t need an introduction but has recently been given a few new developments. While this beer is consistently a best seller for us since it was first brewed in the beginning ... Read More
With the weather still on the chillier side for not much longer, I wanted to highlight our newest dark and warming offering in the Idle Hands Taproom, Annika. While we brew with a large breadth of styles, lagers are certainly a major focus for us. Last year we brewed our Russian Imperial Stout, Crossroader; this ... Read More
First Pitch is a strange beer. There, I said it. That being said, I feel like it needs a bit of an explanation so everyone understands where we are coming from and why we brew it. To do so, you need to rewind the clock a bit, back to the fall of 2013 in fact ... Read More
This week I wanted to put the spotlight on an annual release for us. A bold beer that goes back to our roots as a Belgian inspired brewery; our Belgian-style Quadruple Ale brewed with spices, Four Horsemen. This year’s release has particularly stood out to me. While this beer to us has always been known ... Read More
