Beer Halls: why aren't there more of you?!? Brewers that know what they're doing. A kitchen with a simple menu that is well executed. Just a happy place all around.

This might be one of the better breweries I've been to. Its a great place to go with the family, get some food and great beer. The food was good enough to go to even without great beer. You also have their Springdale tap room right next door which opens up a lot more options. They had a great selection of beers that can appeal to a wide audience, especially since they also offer a selection of Springdale beers in the beer hall.

Stopped in on the way home , big place!
The feel is post industrial, with a central area for family style sitting.
Waitstaff rocks, great beer line up. the food offerings are diverse and well priced. We shared a flatbread and then a slate all excellent.
The beer offerings are also well priced, the brewery specials are worth checking out.
Overall the value and the breath of offerings are excellent. We will be re-visiting
Cheers

Keeping Lagers alive! Great tap selection. Killer retail shop and an amazing German inspired open seating beer hall. Grab a beer and some food and make new friends.

Great vibes just because it's a proper beer hall. Hard to find those in the States, especially New England. Compared to the old spot, this is gigantic. Store to buy growlers/bottles/cans and merch is separate from the draft beer and food with views of the barrel room. Solid crowd on a Wednesday evening so I can imagine it gets fun (or rowdy) on weekends. Not the friendliest staff but I don't expect smiles and warmth in Framingham.

The quality of the beer and food is very good. It's hard to beat fresh small-batch draught beer with a wide range of styles. The food is surprisingly good even if half of the menu is pizza. (Harpoon could take a lesson here!) I've had a range of servers from perfectly helpful and timely to completely clueless. The vibe is where Jack's Abby loses it. Sound system is woefully under-powered and mismatch for this warehouse turned brewery-restaurant. There's a serious lack of noise-absorbing cloth or wood. Add to this over-bright warehouse lighting and no comfortable standing room, and you've sucked any potential for vibe right out of the room.
