The Boynton has one of the better tap lists in Worcester. It appears that they change it weekly. The tap list is sorted by style and they identify the location of the brewery as well, which I thought was nice. The restaurant itself is huge and gets quite crowded in the bar area. It's not the quietest place ever either and there are better value for money bars in Worcester, although anyone coming from Boston will think this is a steal.

Popular Worcester dining destination with one of the better craft draft lists aside from Armsby and Dive Bar. The beer list is always diverse and they seem to focus on having a few beers from many different styles to satisfy anyone. I have had many local brews here as well as the occasional seasonal brew from afar, for example FW Parabola. Prices are probably right around or $0.50 lower than an average Armsby draft price. I also think they will do half-pours if that is what you want. I have had several entrees and the pizza a few times here. The food is always fresh and flavorful with a large enough menu that mostly anyone could find something. If not, just fall back on the pizza and it will be satisfying. The place is also huge with plenty of booth seating.

About 50 drafts plus 3 casks. A lot of New England represented in the tap list but also Abita, 21st Amendment, Bear Republic, Sixpoint. Pretty good bottle selection too including Victory and some Belgian stuff. Beer menu is thorough although it doesn't include pricing. All craft drafts I've had there have been $6.

The big bar probably seats around 20 plus there are booths around the outside of the room. A lot of big TVs in the bar. There are also 1-2 dining rooms in the back. The vibe in those rooms is more of a family restaurant; in the bar it's plenty of 20somethings and post-work outings.

Menu is big and reasonably priced. Pizza and appetizers are really good. Bill for two drafts, a small pizza and a sandwich was $26 before tip.

Went here for a friends birthday the other day.

Since they don't accept reservations we had to wait about an hour before a couple of tables opened up for our party of 15. But that was ok, more time for beer.

Tap selection was very good, had lots of breweries including a few locals. Started off with a Wachusett Winter then went to a Back in Black IPA. Also had a good selection of bottles from Chimay to Duvel. Prices were reasonable at the bar. It was very crowded and loud but it was a fun atmosphere, I would come back to watch a game.

Food was also very good. I had a burger along with an Allagash White served in proper glassware with reasonable prices. Menu had a wide range of items from burgers to seafood and the specials looked really good too.

If your in the area and looking for a good brew and meal I would definitely recommend this place.

The B is a staple in this college town. Anybody that goes to school here has had at least one meal at the B.

The beer selection is incredible, they have TONS of beers on tap. If you are trying to go to a bar to sample different beers from the tap then this is definitely the spot to go. The bar gets a little bit crowded but that just speaks to the atmosphere. If you can get there early and grab a booth or a seat at the bar sporting events are great. They have several tv's and always provide a variety of games on sundays.

For the style of food they offer, it is a little bit on the more expensive side. It is kind of weird that being in a college town that they prices wouldn't be cheaper than they are, but it is still a good enough place to grab a bite to eat.
