A microbrewery with good food!

We really enjoyed the food and beer selection at Boston Beer Works. I ate a salmon burger that was delicious. I also tried their chowder, which was also pretty good. They have a wide selection of micro brews. We love Sam Adams, but after staying in Boston for nearly a week, it was nice to try... read more

I was up from Texas for a Sox game and we hit up this location while checking the downtown scene. The beer choices here were great. I tend to go thick and dark, but also tried a few lighter beers first. All were great! Perfectly made at least to my taste. My wife enjoyed a blueberry bear with fresh blueberries... More

The beer is good I brew a lot of beer and drink a lot of different beer and this beer is good. Had the IPA and friend had the wit. The spent grain dough bites were interesting I'd love to know more about cooking with spent grain. I had the pork slider special and the pork was essentially raw. I... More

Great place to go. Both locations are great but I still favor the Fenway Park location. Food is great but the menu has changed over the last few years with a few selections removed from the menu. The brew is great and everyone should be able to find a selection that they will enjoy. Staff is great, friendly, helpful and... More

Stopped there for lunch on our way to a Bruins game. Service was pretty slow given the fact we got there 15 minutes before a big rush!!!! But burgers were great, and not overpriced! Great selection of brews too!!!! and the Mud pie was enough for 4 to share!!!! Really good value!!!!! Definitely be back!!!!!!!

I read that the restaurant had a kids menu, so my family and I decided to stop in for a beer and food before Disney on Ice. I was happy to see a lot of other younger kids around. We got chili nachos, pastrami, and some sourdough bites. The food was excellent. I would say our waiter was much to... More

I've been here a few times in the past, as it's my go-to spot before a Bruins game (aside from the Regina) if I need a bite before the puck drops. As bar food goes, this place does it really well. They don't have to worry about being nominated for a James Beard award, but they make some killer nachos,... More

We were a party of four adults and two children (2) and 3 weeks. The management went above and beyond. They had a table on the upper floor and took us through the back hall to an elevator. We were there prior to a Rod Segar concert and it was crowded. Background music was great. I had the pastrami sandwich... More
