Notes:
"Boston Beer Works," opened at 61 Brookline Avenue, across from Fenway Park in 1992. Providing an extensive menu of handcrafted ales and lagers and a varied menu of freshly prepared bold American cuisine to the thirsty and hungry masses. An instant landmark, "Boston Beer Works" not only recognized and capitalized on the microbrewery trend it pushed the boundaries. Here, the restaurant layout took the beer making process and exposed it allowing our guests the chance to taste, touch and smell the complete beer making experience. This "naked and true" interior concept still exists in the store today and has been extended to all our locations.

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.

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.
