I stopped by this Beer Works the day after the Fenway location. They seemed to have a few of the same beers on tap, but the specialties and seasonals differed. The service wasn't as good as the Fenway location, but they were slightly busier (both places we were served at the bar).

The Canal Street location had bigger beers, including a barleywine and an imperial stout. But I'm sure this was just a matter of timing. The selections here were just as tasty as the ones at the Fenway location.

I had a burger and it was as big as my head. The food was good. The menu looks like standard brewpub fare (which I really enjoy).

I enjoyed the Fenway location more, but I have a feeling that my scores could have been different due to timing. I can recommend this place heartily, if you're in the area (it's nice and close to a t-stop).

A decent place to eat and drink for a franchised brewpub. My first disappointment was when choosing the beers for my flight of four, they were out of two of the beers I wanted to try. No big deal, though, since their selection was rather extensive. My second was when I was told that they had nothing on cask that month (the server didn't know for what reason).

Visited here on Sunday and this is in line with the other Beer Works locations that I have been to. Prices are a bit higher than in Hingham, which is to be expected. I always really enjoy the food at Beer Works. The menu has plenty of varieties of sandwiches, burgers, and entrees. their Rajun Cajun and veggie burger are two staples that I usually get. The beer is usually more hit than miss and there seems to be a good fifteen ales on tap. The location is open and airy for the area. Vibe is modern microbrewery. The restaurant was not overly busy when we dined, so service was attentive and timely. Bottom line with Beer Works is that it is a good place to stop for a beer and food before an event at the garden.

Canal Street BBW has a very comfortable vibe, with pleasing, industrial decor. Service is good-to-very good. But I don't understand why all Beer Works locations insist on having the servers explain their "team service" concept. Like you're going to freak out if the person who delivers your food is different from the one who took your order. Don't most places work that way? Does it really require an explanation ahead of time? As long as I can find someone if I need ketchup or silverware, we're good. Aside from that, the service is fine.

The food for me is on the high end of pub fare. Good burgers, sandwiches and sides. Overall a pretty safe bet

Big place with lots of seating. Food was standard brew pub fare and of good quality. Beer selection was okay - lots of styles should cover most peoples tastes.
