4.15/5  rDev +2%

I was in the Boston area and saw it as one of the highest rated establishments. I had called earlier to schedule an appointment with Will to take a tour. We had gotten there very early, must have been moments after they opened for lunch. Very spacious, with a lot of light colored wood tables and a simple looking bar. It wasn't all dressed up or dim, just plain and inviting. Behind the register was the mash tun and kettle, just sitting there without any glass or wall blocking the view from the customers. The back of the brewhouse were filled to capacity with fermenters and serving tanks.

Service was good, but there were probably 2 other customers when we first sat down. When I was there, they had 14 beers on tap. The day before they had done some sort of tasting with the brewers and had a bunch of the more elaborate beers left over from the night before. The ESB and the porter were excellent. Out of the 14 beers on tap, I thought only 5 were very good. The brewer had given us a tasting of all his offerings after the tour.

For lunch I had the Fried Haddock. The Haddock was dry and chewy, not moist and flaky. The batter was very thin, and there were only two small pieces of fish atop a mountain of french fries. The coleslaw was good, and the fries were really good, but the Haddock was a huge disappointment.

Would I come back, hell yeah. There were some very good beers there, and what a selection. As for the food, I'll never order the Fried Haddock ever again.
