This is a great place to go if you're in the fenway area! This is a working brewery and the beer served on site is the beer made on site and thats it! no bud ligt folks sorry! lol Any ways that also means no other craft beer either, However they do cater to all and there's a beer for almost anyone. I like they're blueberry ale its one of the better blueberry's in this area. Beware! This place is a mob scene before every redsox game. This place like every other place around fenway is jam packed with people during the games so if your not a fan of people standing all around you when you eat then this might not be the place for you.

If you go here any other time though it operates like a normal restraunt so you wont have to worry to much.

Food is good and typical selection prevails the menu, burgers fries, chicken and a variety of other foods you'd expect at a place like this.

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.

Took my father-in-law and the family here after we toured Fenway Park for Fathers Day weekend festivities. The space was quite large with tables to the side upon entering, tables on the main floor, and a large bar area to one's right. The brewing area is actually wide open on the right side when you enter the space.

Overall atmosphere seemed relaxing and social with a dark paint/industrial design with several televisions adorned across the space. Since it was not a game day, there was plenty of room in this big restaurant, but I imagine its very crowded on game days.

Menu was generally pub-based. Several sandwich and burger options and some pub dinners. I had the Beer Works Turkey Tips, which were pretty good. I enjoyed the large portions and the turkey was nicely marinated and cooked. For drinks, I decided to have the Flight #2, which consisted of the UR IPL, the Deliberation Session IPA, the Contender IPA, and the Hoppy Brown.

Service was quite good. Our waitress was very nice and attentive to our needs. She even helped pick my meal since I was undecided.

Overall, I don't have much experience drinking or socializing near Fenway, but this seemed like a nice place to have a few drinks and eat before, during, or after a game.
