Located in the corner of the large Shopper's World. Kind of tucked away.
Very large restaurant with a nice visible brewing operation. Menu is pretty extensive with sandwiches, wraps, burgers, and pizzas. Apps were a huge hit for our kids. Nice kids menus too.
8 beers going the day we visited, with a decent range. Nothing dark, though. I get it's summer, but it is NE. One beer on cask and quite tasty.
Service was very attentive, even though they were crowded. Professionally done.
If you are in the area, worth a stop. Decent place to catch a game. Great way to kill time while the wife shops.

If I'm going to drink in Framingham, this is really the only place to go. Prices and poor draft maintenance keep me from BBC.... and that's about it. Not too many options in the immediate area, though I still haven't been to the Framingham beer works due to the fact they were delayed in brewing on the premises
The beer is at the worst always true to style and a respectable representation of style and on occassion they hit one out of the park, some of their IPAs are worthy of more praise and the rotating cask selection has recently been a lot more experimentive and fun.
The service cannot be beat. I'm generally here on Sundays after work and it is usually the assistant brewer bartending, "Baggles". Always on top of everything, never waiting for a pour and is quite passionate about brew, the best attributes in a brewpub 'tender
Food is alright, typical american grill/pub style, but the cheap late night offerings are what give it a bump
Quality spot in a bit of no mans land for beer in Framingham.
