For a brewpub with little or no distribution, Boston Beer Works has an extensive selection of draft beers. I've visited the Fenway location a couple times and haven't really found a beer that I thought was good to outstanding. Perhaps I gravitate to their more ambitious beers, which don't quite work, or styles that don't showcase the brewer's talents. I'd probably go back more often if I didn't find the food overly greasy and simply bland. I've tried a couple different appetizers,a burger or two, and wasn't impressed by very much. At best, my Beer Works experiences have been average beer and average food in a sterile, yet surprisingly loud, room with adequate but unimpressive service.

Great place to grab beers before a sox game. Gets very crowded and hard to get beer but great selection.

The food is pretty good, the beer is decent. They brew a fairly large variety of beer, but none of it is very exciting.

I’ve only been here during Redsox games, but they do a terrific job of moving people through without you feeling rushed. Decent beers, pub type food. The food is all quite good. We have always had a good meal here. Recently my wife was disappointed that they took her favorite sandwich (Green Monstah) off the menu. They told her no problem, they will still make it for her.
