Hit this lace up with tigg924 on 3/31

It's a good thing that I was following tigg924 as in all likely hood, I would have blown right past this place. Small establishment, tucked up on a hill. From the outside, it looks really small. Once you're inside, it's still small but there is a decent sized bar and bar tables all around. There is also a nice patio area out back with several more seats. There are 4 or 5 different tv's in the place so this seems like a cool place to catch the game.

There are, as advertised, 99 bottles on tap - some decent selections a good deal of local brews and a nice assortment of others, Troegs, Weyerbacher were the only two that I really made a note of. I was more focused on their tap list. They have 17 or 18 beers on tap and nothing to lift your nose about. I had checked out the website before coming and that thing is WAY out of date! On tap last night was - KBS, ABV Anniversary, Lake Placid IPA, Bluehills Red Baron, Mayflower IPA, Ithaca Ground Break and several others.

Food is decent. Go in knowing that it is pub food. It's not a bowl you over menu, they have a page of apps, pizza's, sandwhiches, and burgers. Tigg924 got a burger and fries, I got the Steak Quesidillla, The food is quite good, the portions are beyond reasonable, and for pub food - it smelled REALLY good.

Service was good. Our waitress was attentive, and made sure to refill our pints whenever necessary.

As tigg said, this really is a hidden gem on the south shore!

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!

I've been going to "Tom's" for over 15 years. The only weak spot was the occasional weak kitchen [things didn't come out 'quite' the way they should], but that has been address as of this posting and I dare say that 99% of patrons are more then happy with both the beer selection and food offerings.

The wait staff deserves particular praise for their attention to detail, customer service and professionalism. Tom hires only the best. Two mainstays of the bar staff, Richard and Heidi, have been at the Brewhouse for 10+ years and know all the customers and their tastes.

Service and value are always A1.

Smallish bar with plenty of tables and a great patio in the back for the warmer months. A good amount of tables but spread out well enough that you never feel like a can of sardines. A decent amount of TVs so that you're never not in sight of whatever game might be on.

Service is great and they are pretty quick and seem to be knowledgeable about beer. Always carry 99 bottles in stock and the taps rotate regularly with great variety.

Food leaves a little to be desired but its solid bar food and lets face it we come here for the beer.

Prices are very reasonable and I always find a reason to come back week after week. Highly recommended for any beer fan.

This place is a MUST. It's very cozy. A nice natural wood bar, lots of classic empties on the wall, the other patrons were friendly and talkative. I even got to sample a chili beer not on the menu! Also: GREAT out door patio with TV's for when it's a busy sports night.

The service was outstanding. My glass never got to empty, even when my friend and I were the only ones outside. The bartender himself came outside and asked us what we wanted to try next. He was also very courteous and had a great attitude.

The beer selection was awesome. They had flower power, sixpoint resin dipa, southern tier imp chocolate stout, and other great beers on tap. They have had kbs on tap too. They also have standards on tap (Sams, Harpoon). They also carry rotating beers from 100 different breweries (bottle).

I got a burger that could drown a dolphin and it was messy delicious. You can get spicy fries instead of normal for no extra charge. I have a good appetite and I ALMOST couldn't finish my burger.

After my huge burger and four top notch draft beers, my bill was thirty bucks. Enough said.

Just a great beer bar which on the south shore in ma. Is rare. 99 great bottles of beer and about 20 more on tap that rotate a great mix of local beer and top notch craft brews.Great pub food, reasonable prices, and service that is knowledgable and attentive makes the brew house such a great spot .Tom the owner does a great job of mixing up the beers so things don't get stale it seems every time I go in there I can always try something new .

Stopped in here this past week after work with some friends. Parking here must be insane on the weekends, not a lot of parking spaces. Inside, it's a small bar, but it's cozy. Tons of breweriana on the walls, and a couple of tvs. Service was awesome the whole night, as our waitresses were quick and friendly. Selection was excellent too. They have about 15-20 taps, and 100 bottles. I had the Firestone Walker 15th Anniv, Victory Yakima Glory, and a pint of Blue Hills Red Baron on cask, which was tasty. Prices were anywhere from $5-$7 for a beer, so not bad. Food was good too. Had a burger which was cooked well, and the nachos were loaded. This place seems like a favorite amongst the locals, and for good reason. Plenty of great beers in a relaxed pub.
