"Found" this by seeking out Mayflower IPA on the Mayflower Brewing website. My wife and I were dining in Braintree two miles away, and I had not yet tried anything from Mayflower, so, perfect! It was 5:00 yesterday (Saturday), so not yet very busy; most people I think were outside on their enclosed patio. We sat at the bar, where the lone bar keep gave very good service with a smile.
17 beers on tap, perhaps 6-8 IPA or APA. Also 99 beers on their menu, quite extensive. Had 2 Mayflower IPA's, the first of which was served in a frosted glass, not cool, but I asked for a warm on the second time. My wife had Delerium Tremens in bottle, then a BBC (Berkshire) Maibock which tasted great. For the hop lover, they also had Avery IPA in bottle, and others I can't remember.
Since our tummies were empty, we split an order of Chicken Quesadilla's, which were quite good. We did wait maybe 15 minutes for them to come out which seemed strange, but again, very good.
Since we live 30 miles south of Boston, this seems like a great alternative to driving in to the city for good beers. OK, it's no TPH or CBC, but you could do much, much worse. Hats off to their very good beer menu. Wish there was something even close near Raynham, but no...

The beer selection is wonderful. An always rotating, well-curated tap selection that is quite heavy on hoppy offerings. Lots of bottles available as well.
The food is unspectacular, which accounts for my somewhat low score. Decent bar pizza and burgers. Otherwise, the deep-fried fare dominates.
Atmosphere is townie bar, and I say that with love and respect. The folks that work there and those that frequent the joint are top notch.
Pro tip-if you plan on visiting near any holiday, especially one that involves a long weekend, better call first as they seem to close for not only the holiday, but those days that surround it as well.

A gem in the South Shore. This is a small bar with huge offerings. They have a hundred bottle beer list. You can sign up and get a plaque when your done. They have recently have had a lot of cask-ed aged ales which are always a treat. i recently was able to enjoy a Mayflower Thanksgiving ale(a combo of strong ale and dark ale in style), They also had Mayflowers unfiltered IPA which was a surprise. A gem! If you are in the area and are looking for good brew for lunch this little place has a lot to offer. (17 draft lines and 1 engine)
rare offerings I have enjoyed there: Sculpin, Several Scratch series,KBS,Ithaca Brute,Casks of Hop3, hop stoopid, W.bros joker Ipa...Just a few of the treats found time to time.
Year after year this places remains solid. Definitely my favorite, but I am not impartial. Still a must go!
