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.

Though the selection was good, I found the atmosphere very loud with college crowd. Not a place to come and relax with a good beer. Food was fair, a service this night was not very attentive.

Go here almost everytime I go to fenway. I try to get here early to beat the big crowds and to actually get a seat. The foods always super good,but for as many beers that they have on draft not greatest selection. (for how many they have) It always seems to me that it must be so hard to keep draft lines clean with that many beers on draft. Seems like the same old selection everytime I go. Yet still the best place around fenway to get a good beer for reasonable $$$.
