Q:Can I serve food to the public at my event?
A:No, unfortunately we cannot accommodate this, though bringing food for your private event or gathering is OK! AERONAUT does not have a permit for food service and the Somerville Health Department has restricted the number of food licenses that we may apply for.

We are happy to accomodate private events of all sizes, please email email@example.com
and we'll set something up.

Q:I have an idea for a public event or a fundraiser!
Q:My band would like to play at Aeronaut. How do I get booked?
Q:Do you allow pets in the taproom?
Q:Do you serve anything besides beer?
A:Our federal and state licenses only allow us to brew and serve beer at this time—sorry!
Q:Can I bring my own alcohol to a private event?
A:Unfortunately not. Our licensing precludes all other forms of alcohol being served or consumed anywhere in the brewery.
Q:Do you make a gluten-free beer?
A:Not yet, sorry! AERONAUT is actively prototyping gluten-free and gluten-reduced beer recipes, although we haven't settled on a final releasable beer that we're happy with yet. If you're curious, gluten-reduced beers have had enough gluten removed to meet the FDAs numerical criterion for being gluten free (less than 20PPM gluten proteins) but are still made from gluten-containing ingredients. For folks with mild sensitivities to gluten, these gluten reduced beers may be a good replacement, but for folks worried about a serious allergic reaction, we would recommend steering clear.
Q:Will you sponsor my organization or event?
