Was recently here for the first time and it was a good time. They do flights and pints and typically have a food truck. When you first pull in you need to know the door is to the right of the building. Don't go in...More

Being a beer person, I try to stop in tasting rooms whenever I can. Nice to see that Lowell has a fine addition to the world of independent craft beers. I enjoy ales so I was particularly pleased. Tough to find but worth the visit.

The location is a little hidden, but the awesome beers made up for it. The staff were great. It’s a really nice place to hangout and they always have different types of food trucks there. Highly recommended!

Stopped in early on a Saturday evening, sampled a few IPA's, all good. Sat and had a nice fresh IPA, spoke with other folks there, and it is DOG FRIENDLY! Lots of pups! Great spot, but get there early! Usually food trucks outside as well...More

Stopped here on the way home from NH. The tap room was small, but bubbling with activity. There was live music and the taps were flowing. Had a great winter warmer. Plus the brewery is in a building with tons of artist studios so if...More

Navigation Brewing is a winner! The taproom is industrial cool! The beer is outstanding. I really enjoyed the Stout. My sister loved their IPA. The venue has both indoor and outdoor seating with plenty of parking. I will be back soon!

Tried Navigation over the weekend. The IPA was good. My brother had the stout which was also good. The tap room was small but didn't feel cramped. I would stop there again.

Old mill building housing a local craft brewery and tap room. Happy dogs on leashes hanging out with their owners. What's not to like (if you can find it; use GPS or good directions).
