Fort Point in Boston is a wait with no pours - but if you live in the burbs, head to a canton for some pretty incredible beer. Excellent selections on tap. This stuff is extremely high quality. Great vibe, food trucks, dog friendly. If you’re taking Amtrak to NYC, stop here on your way back - or even better bring your NYC friends some REAL beer.

I still have something of hard time believing that you can just...walk right in?

This is retail at its best in this age of all-hyped everything. I walked in on an early Wednesday evening and walked back out 3 minutes later with four 4-packs. Staff was attentive and provided me a good recommendation while I was debating my last choice.

Sure, there's no samples or pours, but it also has the effect of keeping everything swift and efficient.

Went to the Congress street location.

Staff were helpful and the selection incredible.

Only thing is that you need totally blank or Trillium growlers in order to get them filled.

Stopped by the Fort Point location at 11 am (opening time) on a Thursday, with the understanding that they got what they got, and once its gone its gone... 5 dudes were "on line" ahead of me - website identified all beers about to be available... Inside had a bar-like area with merchandise like t-shirts and glasses behind it... Brewery staff pulled cans or filled growlers as requested... Fairly run-of-the-mill... You can't drink or sample on-site; no tours or such - serves strictly as a purchasing venue for their product... Got what I wanted with no fuss. Only issue is parking. On the street parking is totally unlikely, and the couple of public lots nearby charge $24 for the day - as in $24 no matter how long you're there. I'm sure there's other ways to go about this, but as this was a destination stop for me, it cost $24 to park on top of the beer purchase. See a lot of high reviews here - perhaps they're for the other location? There is nothing to rave about here - you walk up to a register, purchase beer, and leave. I just gave 'em the points for quality because it's gonna be fresh. Selection is limited to what they have and whatever limits there are to purchasing that day. There's really nothing noteworthy otherwise.

Been to both, S.Boston and Canton locations. My girlfriend and I love the taproom in Canton. Drove 5.5 hrs from Upstate NY for a day trip and WILL do it again. These guys are doing it right!
