    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.

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

    They have the best lobster roll in Boston - way better than the expensive ones at Legal's, Abe & Louie's, etc.
