SWAMPSCOTT — Craft Beer Cellar, 450 Paradise Road, recently joined the Lynn Area Chamber of Commerce with a ribbon-cutting ceremony at the store. Craft Beer Cellar owner Scott Claussen said his love of beer came from working at a Goose Island brewpub in Chicago.
“Everything in the store has either been sampled personally or researched to the point where I feel like it has been sampled,” said Claussen. “We focus heavily on local beers as well, since supporting Massachusetts and the local area is important. We do not carry any macro beer with the ‘familiar names.’ Everything we carry is either a great example of its particular style, or one that I feel has another overriding reason to be carried.”
Craft Beer Cellar will host tastings of beer, wine, cider and mead Fridays from 4-6 p.m. or 5-7 p.m. For more information go to www.craftbeercellar.com and click “find a store” to access the Swampscott location or call 781-715-8495.
