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

I asked before we were seated if they have gluten free menu. Host said they have options on the menu. We were seated and looking at the menu I couldn't find much. So I asked our server which items were gluten free because i have a wheat allergy and she said she would ask the cook. She came back and... More

I enjoyed our visit. My favorites were the yummy blueberry brew and I loved the sweet potato fries because of the delicious raspberry aioli. My main dish was the Brew'Bano. It was good, but the chipotle mayo was too hot for my taste. I admit my taste is mild-medium and should have asked. We were there for quite some time... More

Why 5 stars? It was perfect for us before a Celtics game; great service, a diverse & fun menu, and a great pre-game atmosphere with lots of TVs on the walls, plenty of fans from both teams, and it's a short walk to The Garden. There are a lot of choices long this street before the game and this one... More

While visiting Boston, we wandered into this bar, and LOVED it! We are huge fans of microbrews. They don't sell any beer they don't brew themselves. Great selection. It was so much fun to try something different. And the atmosphere, decor and staff were very nice as well.
