While some people live in the basement for one reason or another, others like to work in the basement.

Dave Howland, 34, founder, entrepreneur and yes, chief bottle washer of 3cross Brewing Company, likes to work in the basement. First he did it at home, then he graduated to the ground floor at 26 Cambridge St., the building that once housed Playoff Arcade Entertainment.

Dave Howland, a Worcester Academy grad, traded in his basement for a Cambridge Street location to build 3cross Brewing Co.

Dave Howland, a Worcester Academy grad, traded in his basement for a Cambridge Street location to build 3cross Brewing Co.

His weekly creations of the hoppy kind are brewed from imagination, research and drinkability. All are his own concoctions, and he’ll change them at his own whim … because he can. Just close your eyes and go with the flow.

Since he doesn’t depend on a focus group, he needs to keep everyone sated and guessing as to what comes next. Blend dark chocolate, chiles, cinnamon and vanilla in a liquid? Why not? That’s the type of “stuff” that’s in the taps – delicious beers, tea and non-alcoholic ginger beer.
