Some friends and I decided to go here for drinks after meeting in our hostel around the corner. It was a weekday night, so it was pretty quiet and slow. Of course, this place has a ton of different kinds of beer and as with most places with huge selections, it can be a bit difficult to choose. The bartender... More

We were in the neighborhood on a Sunday night and wanted a quick dinner and we could easily walk in and sit at the bar. The server was attentive but couldn't have been less interested in his job. The nachos were fine, the 9-alarm boneless wings weren't even hot but they were flavorful and tender. Salads were fine, but I... More

I had been to the location down by Fenway and loved it. This was closer to the TD Garden and was ok. Service was a bit slow, but nothing I couldn't deal with. I think the location could use a bit more security. There was a homeless guy in the bathroom telling me why I shouldn't sleep with women that... More

The service was simply awful. My husband wanted to go to a brewery and this was the closest one we could go to. The beers were all off, they didn't have any ones that were in the menu. Waiters were not attentive at all. There were three birds in the restaurant, one of which sat next to my foot and... More

Love it! Great server and great food! My husband loved the recommended beer and we enjoyed the atmosphere and overall restaurant quality. The effort was made to make us feel special and enjoy our time here. A great place for tourists and anyone in the neighborhood. We will definitely be returning and hopefully you'll give it a try!

While I typically am not a fan of custom brews, The wide selection covered all categories. The "Bar food" was delivered fast and was very good. I had the Brewbano...their take on a Cuban and it was great! My son had the kid's fish and chips and really enjoyed it. I will say the french fries were kid of soggy,... More

A great place to meet friends when there is no game at the Garden (for Canal Street location) or Fenway. On game nights it's a madhouse - but if that's your thing you'll love it. Good prices and some of the best food you'll find around Fenway.

You wouldn't ever imagine that this place - consacred to beer worshipping - would also offer great burgers. Taste the unusual tasting beers, I guarantee great surprises

Stopped by as I was looking for some beer that wasn't the usual Boston list (Sam Adams, Guiness, Harpoon). I ordered a "rack" of beer in order to try the most beers possible. I had the Apricot Saison, Beantown Nut Brown, the Porter and the Stout (not the Imperial). I also ordered the blackened cajun chicken salad. The beer was... More
