A while back I posted a thread on the forum, stating my frustrations with the lack of good beer places on the South Shore. A few fellow BA's reccomended this place to me, and yesterday I could put up with it no longer, so I got some friends on board and we headed down Route 18 with all due haste.

Situated right off the end of Route 18 on Route 53, The Union Brewhouse is easy to find, and very accessible.

I thought it would be larger than it was but what it lacked in size, was made-up in great beer selection, food, and people.

The interior is cozy with nice bar, fireplace, and beer paraphanelia on the walls. Very tavern-like. I felt comfortable.

As I do look like I am 16, I was carded, which, because of my face, can only be deemed responsible management, haha.

Because of President's Day I went with the Liberty Ale by Anchor, followed by Laguinitas' Hairy Eyeball, and finally Sierra Nevada's Celebration Ale. My friends enjoyed Presidente, BBC Steel Rail, and some more I forget.

I had the Union Burger, which was very good. I can't speak for the other dishes, but my friends weren't vommiting or making strange faces, so I can only assume good things from the menu.

The bartenders, who also waited tables, were awesome. They were nice, funny, and had a general humorous manner about them.

As we ate and drank we watched the Olympics on the numerous TV's throughout the establishment.

It was a good time, and I look forward to the next.

Cheers to the Union Brewhouse!

[edit] Since going several times over the last year, I have to say that if you go on a night when there's football, or baseball on, it becomes a meat locker. it's packed to the brim, with many loudmouths, who like to blast sappy metal music on the juke box, and you can't even enjoy the red sox while drinking your beer. My first review happened to be when no sporting events were on in February, so i guess buisness was slower and more tame. [edit]

I live in the area, and have been here many times. Very small space, & a bit dark, but there is some outdoor seating. Very good craft beer selection, & friendly staff.

The beer selection is wonderful. An always rotating, well-curated tap selection that is quite heavy on hoppy offerings. Lots of bottles available as well.
The food is unspectacular, which accounts for my somewhat low score. Decent bar pizza and burgers. Otherwise, the deep-fried fare dominates.
Atmosphere is townie bar, and I say that with love and respect. The folks that work there and those that frequent the joint are top notch.
Pro tip-if you plan on visiting near any holiday, especially one that involves a long weekend, better call first as they seem to close for not only the holiday, but those days that surround it as well.

A gem in the South Shore. This is a small bar with huge offerings. They have a hundred bottle beer list. You can sign up and get a plaque when your done. They have recently have had a lot of cask-ed aged ales which are always a treat. i recently was able to enjoy a Mayflower Thanksgiving ale(a combo of strong ale and dark ale in style), They also had Mayflowers unfiltered IPA which was a surprise. A gem! If you are in the area and are looking for good brew for lunch this little place has a lot to offer. (17 draft lines and 1 engine)

rare offerings I have enjoyed there: Sculpin, Several Scratch series,KBS,Ithaca Brute,Casks of Hop3, hop stoopid, W.bros joker Ipa...Just a few of the treats found time to time.

Year after year this places remains solid. Definitely my favorite, but I am not impartial. Still a must go!

I've been going to "Tom's" for over 15 years. The only weak spot was the occasional weak kitchen [things didn't come out 'quite' the way they should], but that has been address as of this posting and I dare say that 99% of patrons are more then happy with both the beer selection and food offerings.

The wait staff deserves particular praise for their attention to detail, customer service and professionalism. Tom hires only the best. Two mainstays of the bar staff, Richard and Heidi, have been at the Brewhouse for 10+ years and know all the customers and their tastes.

Service and value are always A1.

Smallish bar with plenty of tables and a great patio in the back for the warmer months. A good amount of tables but spread out well enough that you never feel like a can of sardines. A decent amount of TVs so that you're never not in sight of whatever game might be on.

Service is great and they are pretty quick and seem to be knowledgeable about beer. Always carry 99 bottles in stock and the taps rotate regularly with great variety.

Food leaves a little to be desired but its solid bar food and lets face it we come here for the beer.

Prices are very reasonable and I always find a reason to come back week after week. Highly recommended for any beer fan.

This place is a MUST. It's very cozy. A nice natural wood bar, lots of classic empties on the wall, the other patrons were friendly and talkative. I even got to sample a chili beer not on the menu! Also: GREAT out door patio with TV's for when it's a busy sports night.

The service was outstanding. My glass never got to empty, even when my friend and I were the only ones outside. The bartender himself came outside and asked us what we wanted to try next. He was also very courteous and had a great attitude.

The beer selection was awesome. They had flower power, sixpoint resin dipa, southern tier imp chocolate stout, and other great beers on tap. They have had kbs on tap too. They also have standards on tap (Sams, Harpoon). They also carry rotating beers from 100 different breweries (bottle).

I got a burger that could drown a dolphin and it was messy delicious. You can get spicy fries instead of normal for no extra charge. I have a good appetite and I ALMOST couldn't finish my burger.

After my huge burger and four top notch draft beers, my bill was thirty bucks. Enough said.
