I have been coming here for years but have never reviewed it.

This location is literally across from Fenway Park. When you first walk in, there is an area of tables to the left. Up the ramp the room then splits - a full out bar behind a partition and then seating on the left. I like the atmosphere - exposed brick, walls with bottles and growlers line the walls.
Service has been hit or miss, but this last time around our waitress was fantastic. She was attentive and stopped by enough, but not too much. She was quite knowledgeable about the beers, as well as the food.
Selection of beer and food is damn good. We got the Mako Shark Skewers - which was the first time that I had ever gotten them and hot DAMN they were fantastic. I got the South End burger, which was bacon and smoked gouda, and my friend got the Surf and Turf Sliders. Both were outstanding - and HUGE portions. Beer menu is solid. They have the Bunkerhill Blueberry, which still holds a soft spot with me, Kenmore Kolsch, Splendid Spliter Ale, Back Bay IPA, Beantown Nut Brown, Boston Common, Buck Eye Oatmeal Stout, and a couple of others. They are having an April special of APA's and Wheats right now.

I enjoy Beer Works, I may avoid it on game day, as the crowd gets rowdy, but overall it's a decent stop with some great food and solid beers.

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.
