Beer selection is decent, even though they are all lagers. Not a big food selection though.

The pizza was great. The beers chosen in a sampler were all good, not a perfect group to my tastes just bad luck on what was on tap. If this were local for me I am sure I would have some favorites. A great lunch and then at least I also went to Trillium for some more beer.

Solid place between Trillium and Treehouse. I personally wasn't a huge fan of the beers, but the space was large and even had lots of people at lunchtime. Would recommend either way.

Great eating and drinking experience all around. Beer hall style (lots of group seating where you are likely to interact with people next to you). Good for families, getting together with friends, quick bite or casual business meals. Always 20+ beers on tap from JA and Springdale (barrel-aged), available in flights, half pours and pints. Service is fast and friendly. Food is creative and delicious, with something on the menu for everyone.

This brewery/restaurant is a favorite meeting spot for my friends and I. It is almost always packed to the brim with people sampling the beers, and gets pretty loud -- not a problem for me. They are excellent when it comes to offering new and even experimental beers on tap. I've been there at least five times, and never repeated a beer on a flight. The food is surprisingly decent, with the prosciutto and basil brick oven pizza a solid option. Slowish service, mainly due to the large crowds.

On a Saturday afternoon, this is a hopping place. Nice blend of families, twenty-somethings, and old folks like me. There are 24 taps and nearly 80% of them are lagers, the commitment of Jack's Abby. The five ales are from the brewery next door, Springdale. Since lagers require a long storage commitment (3x ales), the prices are extremely reasonable!

While I didn't try the food, it looked decent enough with an emphasis on the typical bar expectations.

The service at the bar was harried and chaotic, but other than the five-minute wait when I first arrived, it was efficient enough to keep me with a beer throughout my stay.

The quality of the beers is top notch. Even though the vast majority of them are lagers, the range is from light to dark and malty to hoppy, making it easy to find a beer that suits one's palate. Definitely worth a drive or detour from your path if you are in eastern Massachusetts.

The food is great (especially the pizza) and the staff is friendly. Unfortunately, I was a little disappointed to find that Jack has decided to focus in on the lager style of beer. Although the India Pale Lager is somewhat bitter/hoppy the vast majority of offerings feel like reworkings of the same recipe (so to speak). If you like easy drinking lagers then you'll have a good time but for true beer lovers who appreciate variety the long list of lagers will leave you wanting more.
