Gwinnett Brewery or Button Gwinnett Brewery is a location in the South Boston neighborhood of Boston in 2287.


This craft brewery was founded by local brewer Button Gwinnett, who is the namesake of the founding father.[Non-canon 1] The brewery was best known for the award-winning beers it bottled and produced prior to the Great War. The local favorite Southie Stout was voted "Boston's Best Beer" in 2051 and 2062.[Non-canon 1]

The brewery was also known for producing other renowned types of Gwinnett-brand beer such as Pale Ale, Peabody Pilsner, Dead Redcoat Ale, and the Bunker Hill Brew.[Non-canon 2] Tours of both the craft and seasonal wings were offered on-site at the brewery, costing $59 per visit. The tours were held every half-hour by certified employees of the restaurant, lasting from noon to eight o'clock.

Tours of the primary brewing operation were available, costing $119 and held at various hours in the afternoon. Free samplings were given following the tour, with souvenir pint glasses distributed to guests taking part in tours of the main brewing operation.[1] Customers could purchase beer, both regular and seasonal from the Gwinnett brewery's gift shop, in various sizes, from a single pint all the way up to a keg.[1] Various promotional merchandise, including t-shirts, were also available.

Customers of the Gwinnett brewery included the Hotel Rexford, the the Shamrock Taphouse, and Boston's baseball stadium.[2] Another local operation, the Beantown Brewery, produced at least one Gwinnett-brand beer, the Bunker Hill Brew.


A broken water pipe at the bottom of the ramp from the entrance leads between the brewery and the Gwinnett Restaurant. The bottom level of the brewery is inhabited by approximately five mirelurks hidden in mud piles and five egg clutches.

A small plank ramp on the southeast wall leads onto some pipes for access to the pipes and catwalks of the higher levels, and from there up to the roof. On the roof are two office pods. One can be accessed by shooting the door bar through the window. The other has an Advanced lock.
