Local Tastes Better
Handcrafted every day. We source as local as possible, using many of our local farmers, fishermen, and producers. Local tastes better. Our scratch kitchen makes everything from scratch, and produces fun, adventurous cuisine that is delicious and approachable. We look forward to seeing you soon!
Executive Chef: Jonathan Gilman
We brew our beer with, hops, grains, water, and sunlight!
Yes, we said sunlight. We are lucky to be members of the West Acton Villageworks community where our solar array produces over 160,000 kwh of electricity annually. This solar energy is used to power all of the common areas in the Villageworks complex and our brewers get to use their SHARE to power our chiller, pumps, compressors, lights, control units, basically everything that lives within the four walls of the brewery itself (not the entire True West Restaurant). Villageworks and our brewery is covered with over 100 solar panels that work daily to transform golden sunshine into beer!
Visit the brewery to see our 100% American custom-made brewing equipment by Tigpro Stainless Fabrication in Portland, Maine. Take a tour or watch through the large windows as Todd brews on our 10 barrel brewhouse. And of course, have a pint – directly from our serving tanks to your glass.
Head Brewer: Todd Charbonneau

TRUE WEST PONDER PUB TRIVIA
EVERY TUESDAY: 7-9PM IN THE TAPROOM
The Taproom Bar is open for full service!
What is True West Ponder Pub Trivia?
True West Ponder Pub Trivia is a live hosted knowledge based event played in bars and restaurants all over the country. Get your team, (up to 6 max) to True West to test your skill at an assortment of trivia questions, from Anatomy to Literature, Movies to History, Sports to Science.
Our unique format makes the game more exciting than most. We combine the strategy of wagering points, with the need for cleverness for our bonus rounds.This is not just 50, 60, or 70 questions asked in a row and whoever has the highest score wins. True West Ponder Trivia involves strategy, which helps keep new teams winning each week.
Play in teams of up to six or by yourself if you’re some kind of savant.
If you want to play but don’t have a team, come anyway. We can usually get single players recruited onto an existing team.
Winning teams get street cred, bar cash, and other prizes. Bonus Questions for free pints are sprinkled throughout the quiz.
You don’t have to be a trivia God to enjoy the quiz. Since you’re playing on a team, the collective knowledge base makes for more fun, less pressure. It’s not final friggin’ Jeopardy.
