They're Not All The Same

I noticed most of the reviews for the Boston Beer Works chain were written about the Fenway location, and the comments vary around service & food. The layout could be better and the crowd going to a ball game can be a challenge, so plan your visit accordingly. I usually visit the Canal Street... read more

We went to Beer Works before the Beanpot tournament yesterday. Our friends arrived at about 4pm and put their name in for a reservation for 10 people, and then went upstairs to have a drink. At about 5:30pm when the rest of us arrived, we went back to the hostess stand to see if our table was ready. The hostess... More

Great place to pregame before going to the Garden, we stopped in for beers and burgers, great selection of beers as expected (Perfect Pilsner was a fav), and food was good as well. Crowded and loud place at times but OK for what we were looking for. Tried the brownie Sunday for dessert which was huge and more than enough... More

We stopped in here before a gig in the Garden and was so happy we found this place! I got a pear margarita that was the best margarita I've ever had, I followed this up with a flight of beer which was really interesting, especially the blueberry beer! My boyfriend got two of the craft cocktails from local distillery's which... More

Visited for a business lunch and was blown away by the food - one of the best burgers I've had in a long time (and everyone else who ordered different dishes were also very happy).

Great variety for everyone. You get a little of everything so for groups its definitely a good choice. Prices are pretty descent too. Beer is good, little for every style drinker. If your stuck on your types of beer this isn't the joint for you. My favorite is the wings. Meaty and just the right amount of heat

We stopped in around 430 on this past Thursday before the Boston Bruins game. Sat at the bar. Got service right away. The bartenders are very friendly. Draft beer was good. I ordered a well done burger. Which came out perfect. Great food and time. Glad they got it right the first time

I came here after a Bruins game and my boyfriend and I tried a couple flights of beer and we had a good time. The beer was awesome and the food we had was good. I definitely recommend the Mighty Bean beer.

Average food, great selection of beers. Loud upstairs so if you are looking to talk w/your friends maybe ask for downstairs. Perfect if you are looking for dinner before event @TD & cant get into The Fours.

First off, they have a large selection of beers. Tried two and they were great. Had a part of five and ate dinner there. The server was very attentive and the apps and dinners were very good. We would return without hesitation.
