Rivet, one of several beer choices at Franklin Street’s new Tin Man Brewing Co., promises to whet your senses with caramel malts and Willamette hops to produce a more colorful and flavorful version of its English relatives — the bitter clan. Its toffee sweetness and mild bitterness makes Rivet the perfect complement to backyard barbecues and burgers.
