In Boston, a microbrewery has become an incubator for local start-ups
In Boston, the Aeronaut Brewery Co. finances its project by hosting food start-ups in search of space.
The Aeronaut Brewery Co. has recently moved to Tyler Street, Somerville. The Bostonian microbrewery creates unique beers using local products (yeast, barley…). With this local and eco-friendly initiative, the brewery wanted to introduce diversity and encourage others to do the same by inviting other food start-ups to set up on their site.
To finance their project, the founders decided to transform themselves into a ‘food incubator’ site, creating partnerships with start-ups using similar methods. The rented space hosts, among others, Something Gud, which will open a farmer’s market where local organic products are sold. It also hosts BloomBrick Urban Agriculture which is trying to develop an indoor farm.
