I like the atmosphere and location. Its informal and yet appealing, kind of like a dave and busters but without the games. Beer selection is very nice. Bartender screwed up our orders but he made up for it with a free pint. Not a bad place at all. I imagine it gets packed after Sox games. Would probably go back, especially if I go to see the Sox. I wish that I'd gotten a growler. I sewe that they have other locations within Boston. We don't have these types of chain brewpubs in VT but so far, I'm impressed.

Been here a few times before/after Red Sox games. This place is hopping on game day. Very good craft beer selection, fun atmosphere. No outdoor seating.

I used to live around the corner from BBW - Fenway, over on Boylston, and stopped in frequently. I stopped in a few hours before a Sox game to show my daughter the old neighborhood and was very pleased to see that it hadn't changed much; it still had the same fun look and vibe, same excellent solid selection of quality beers and solid food offerings, and the same "can do" good service despite being packed at times, and great location. Really a great place to hang out with friends.

Sprawling brewpub/ sports bar around the corner from the ballpark. Multiple bars a communial table throughout. 3 different game playing while I was there... ergo very rowdy. Nice assortment of 20 beers on tap, the one I had was solid. Good service, did not try the food - looked to be typical bar fare.

I was here after a terrific Red Sox game that had them come back to score three in the ninth to beat the Cards. Needless to say the atmosphere was pumped up.

I thought the service was good considering the crowds. My bartender was able to make a recommendation for one of my party who was looking for something specific.

My beers were fresh and I thought well made. I had a hoppy red and nice stout. Prices were good considering the location.

This was a large sleek space. I liked how it wasn’t really a traditional brewpub.

I will head back next time I am near Fenway!

Standard, Granite City like brewery & restaurant. Convenient that it's right next to Fenway Park.

Classic place. Very crowded before Sox games, but definitely a better spot than some of the other places around Fenway, which can be tourist trappy. Solid pub food. Prices are decent for a "captive audience" type spot. You'll always find a fun new beer on tap here, too.
