What I had: Ayinger Oktober Fest-Märzen, Stone 17th Anniversary Götterdämmerung IPA, Mayflower Porter, and Harpoon Rich & Dan’s Rye IPA on tap, Ginger-crusted Norwegian Salmon, Chicken Tortilla Soup and some white wines for the Mrs.
What I liked: Lively atmosphere before the Red Sox game, ridiculously huge draught list with excellent style variation, quick service at the bar, we enjoyed our cozy, intimate booth for dinner after the game, very good food, proper glassware, three different serving sizes for beer, convenient location.
What I disliked: Our waitress screwed up our orders so it took almost 45 minutes to get our food, but the manager comped everything so we left happy campers.
Would I go back? Definitely. Aside from the one service issue (which was rectified), we had a great time here.

Amazing beer selection. It's huge and nearly overwhelming. Food is decent pub fare. Place can be kind of a hassle because of the Fenway crowd, but it's a good choice.

As far as chains go, this is one of the better ones. The Fenway location certainly has an ample selection of many of the finest beers offered in the US. For me, though, this is a fairly generic, come with your colleagues at work sort of place. All of the common, but excellent American beers are available, but this is not a place to find the unusual hard-to-find gems.

Service wise do not come to expect a dissertation on the particular malts or hops in any particular beer. Instead, realize that the server knows which one is popular and whether it is "more malty or more hoppy" in terms of taste.

Love this place. Great food, great beer list. Many, many taps. It gets a little crowded & can be pricey but there's a reason for that.

This is as good as it gets for a New Hampshire boy. Over a 140 on tap, excellent food, and a knowledgeable staff. Will always hold this as the place all others need to match.

Very close to Fenway and packed on game day. Great place to get a beer on game day.
