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. (693 characters)

Took my father-in-law and the family here after we toured Fenway Park for Fathers Day weekend festivities. The space was quite large with tables to the side upon entering, tables on the main floor, and a large bar area to one's right. The brewing area is actually wide open on the right side when you enter the space.

Overall atmosphere seemed relaxing and social with a dark paint/industrial design with several televisions adorned across the space. Since it was not a game day, there was plenty of room in this big restaurant, but I imagine its very crowded on game days.

Menu was generally pub-based. Several sandwich and burger options and some pub dinners. I had the Beer Works Turkey Tips, which were pretty good. I enjoyed the large portions and the turkey was nicely marinated and cooked. For drinks, I decided to have the Flight #2, which consisted of the UR IPL, the Deliberation Session IPA, the Contender IPA, and the Hoppy Brown.

Service was quite good. Our waitress was very nice and attentive to our needs. She even helped pick my meal since I was undecided.

Overall, I don't have much experience drinking or socializing near Fenway, but this seemed like a nice place to have a few drinks and eat before, during, or after a game. (1,252 characters)

Great place to grab beers before a sox game. Gets very crowded and hard to get beer but great selection. (104 characters)

The food is pretty good, the beer is decent. They brew a fairly large variety of beer, but none of it is very exciting. (119 characters)

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. (381 characters)
