    Specializes in a changing assortment of 16 beers. The burgers are enormous and the appetizers are mouth-watering. All only a curveball's distance from Fenway Park. Read more

    If you're a Yankees fan visiting Fenway, we can't promise that you won't be tormented here... but at least you'll be drinking good beer and you'll be a stone's throw from the park.

    Fun brewpub with very decent to good beer. The bread and cheese appetizer is a great accompaniment to drinking some good micro brewed beer.

    Bluebeery was one of my favorite beers here. And they do flights so you can try a few.

    The Bunker Hill Blueberry is a staple, but definitely listen to server recommendations for what's fresh. Love the nachos too!

    Great beer and amazing burgers. Love the Watermelon Ale in summer. Sweet Potato fries rock. Always crowded, but for good reason.

    Another local chain in the Boston area - but this location is right outside the park! Try the Fenway Pale Ale during the season!

    Huge place and perfect for groups. Their Stout beer is very soft, not smokey at all but it's very good.

    Blueberry and Watermelon beer. What more could you ask for? The nachos are hit or miss (especially if you get the chicken ones).

    The beer judging was cool, but the "crumble" was not a crumble it was a pie with mooshy oatmeal. Staff was real friendly though.
