Its location across from Fenway Park makes this spacious microbrewery a favorite when the Red Sox are in season, and it remains popular year-round. Fun and loud, it is a great place to sample some brews. Dark-beer lovers may enjoy a pint of Muddy River Porter or Buck Eye Oatmeal Stout. Lighter brews include Allston Mild and Blueberry Ale (with real berries floating in the glass). Menu items range from the bizarre (fried pickles) to the tried-and-true (French fries). There is another Boston location at 112 Canal Street.
Every time we visit Boston, we make sure to include a trip to the Boston Beer Works across from Fenway Park. We went there the first time two years ago because it looked interesting and it was only 2 blocks from our children's apartment. And we have returned evert time we go back to Boston.
The Beer Works features between 15 and 20 different beers, from light to dark -- inlcuding one with blueberries in it (both my daughter and I like that one a lot). In addition to the varied and delicious beer selection, their menu is extensive and reasonably priced. I usually get a broiled Red Snapper sandwich, my wife likes their burgers, and our son-in-law gets the shrimp pasta.
When the Red Sox are not playing, it's usually pretty easy to get a seat (and we time our visits accordingly). When the Sox are at home, it's more difficult to get a seat -- so be prepared.
