Interesting venue. Loved the card catalogs decorating the place. I'm guessing most younger folks wont know what these are. The beer was mediocre at best.

Nice place to hang out and have a flight (or two). Friendly bar staff and a good selection of beers (though could balance off the large amount of IPAs a bit). Would happily return!More

Thanks so much! I think you caught some of the "Fellowship of the Haze," where we featured a large number of New England-style IPAs -- both our own and guest taps. Hope to see you again...we should have a good balance of beers for ya!...More

One of our favorite places to go to meet friends, relax and enjoy a variety of beers. They have standbys, but also have some seasonal and new additions. Love the small plates and addition of food options.

Fullsteam offers a large warehouse type space with board games and occasional live music. They have a good size bar offering the core and seasonal Fullsteam beer.

Great selection of local beers. Stayed open until midnight on a Sunday which was perfect as we were looking for a place open after a wedding at the RIckhouse. Great service and very cool little spot.

I've been to my fair share of breweries. I must say that Fullsteam had a really wide selection of onsite brews available. We had to order 3 flights in order to try them all, and there still may have been more. Go here. It's fun....More
