Frequently Asked Questions
We love your dogs! Our goal, as per City of Somerville, we want to keep guests seated as much as possible. If your dog is down with that plan, bring them by!
As per new MA state law, food must be ordered when ordering alcoholic drinks. You can always bring food in from our neighbors! From our Beer Menu there is a link to guide you through the food options. Order before you come, OR arrive early for your reservation to order in person, OR you can order from your table! We will facilitate getting the food to you at your table.
Short answer - always one or the other! We are juggling some umbrellas and trying to get our space as comfortable as possible for all. We can currently accommodate all tables under cover in case of rain, still outdoors, and will plan to operate normal hours.

Great experience. It was awesome to be back out at a brewery, and I felt very safe and comfortable with the social distancing measures they put in place. The service was great, everyone was friendly, and the beer was tasty as usual. Looking forward to coming back.

The service was excellent. I have one ding: we got a table with only two chairs for six people. When I expressed reservation about benches without backs I was politely told that I could not borrow any other chairs. Here's the thing - it was a Tuesday and the neighboring tables did not, in fact, fill up. I came to Remnant for my bday so this kinda kicked things off on the wrong foot. Dozens of empty chairs were visible in the vicinity. #there'sGottaBeAnotherWay, ya know?

The back patio is very nice and relaxing however, it was a hot, sunny day and we were seated at a table without an umbrella. When we asked our server if we could have the umbrella at the empty table next to us, he said he'd have to ask. We weren't sure why he needed to ask as there was no one seated at that table and we were seated and ready to order our drinks! When the server returned, he was very nasty and gave us an attitude as he abruptly put the umbrella at our table. It got more uncomfortable when we asked if they had any alcoholic gluten free offerings (wine, cider) as one person in our party was gluten free/celiac. The server replied with "we are a BREWERY", implying that we were stupid to think that a brewery would serve something other than BEER. Well, we found plenty of breweries later in the day that served both delicious beer and GLUTEN FREE CIDER or wine. We will not be rushing back to Remnant however, the beer that we did have was very good and decently priced. We enjoyed the 8 oz pours so that you could have a few different types of beer and not feel too intoxicated. Please let that server know that if he doesn't want to move umbrellas for customers, he should work the coffee counter.

I love this local place. They really come into their stride with the beers they’re making and the service is always spectacular. It would be nice if they had some heat lamps on the back patio but other than that I can’t think of a thing I would change

0 for food because food isn’t served at remnant. However the local stands are stellar and delicious. Only challenge is that during covid it is required to order food with alcohol, but some of the stands close before remnant does which makes the choices a bit harder - and covid generally just makes going out a bit more complex and planning-intensive. But otherwise, I love this spot and highly recommend - 10pts all around.
