Close to MIT, also to a business area. It's walkable from Kenmore MBTA station. The CBC website provides directions from that station, but Central is just as close (both on the Red Line). Walk toward the sign that says "Cambridge Brewing Company." The sad person standing at the podium watching you walk by works for a restaurant that doesn't serve good beer (or mabye it does, I don't know).

Indoor and outdoor seating is available. There is also a large bar inside, both facing the wall and another "island" bar opposite for more seating. A TV is available for viewing whatever.

There are a good amount of beers on tap from CBC, about 5-7, which is a good amount for a brewpub. The prices were reasonable to pricey, but they offer multiple glass sizes for different prices. The food selection was decent, well above standard pub food, but a little pricey. I guess you get what you pay for. Definitely nothing was outrageous price wise. The service was fine, and it didn't take too long to get our food or a new beer.

One of the must-go places in Boston/Cambridge. There are so many great beer places in the area but this one is close to top of the list.

4.03/5  rDev -0.7%
vibe: 4.25 | quality: 4 | service: 4 | selection: 4 | food: 4 | $$

Atmosphere: This place is very inviting. It has a nice open concept overlooking the brewhouse through a large window. There are beers to go available on your way out (including growlers).

Service: The waitress I had was very knowledgeable and provided us with good service and suggestions.

Selection: This brewery offers a solid selection of year-rounds, seasonals and on-offs. They had about 5 or 6 year rounds and 5 on-offs and seasonals. I went there the morning after Extreme Beer Fest so I only had the Brett Grisette but it was great nevertheless.

Food and value: I had bacon & eggs witch was delicious. As far as the beer goes, the prices were very reasonable. This is definitely a good brewery to visit if you're ever in the Boston area and are looking to have a few local beers. The experience probably would of been better if I hadn't been hungover.
