Fenway / Kenmore, Boston –
During baseball season, the conveniently located venue hosts rowdy hordes of jerseyed pilsner pounders who gather in the Dugout, the smaller bar and dining area, or slip into a polished wood booth in the Brewer’s Den, where the main bar is usually bustling with pre-game drinkers.
Off season sees the place just as busy, as in-the-know pub crawlers, preppy students, and local young professionals flock in to sample new beers or revisit favorites like the Bunker Hill Blueberry Ale.
Beer connoisseurs and curious patrons will appreciate the glass walls that reveal the stainless steel tanks where the venue’s beers are brewed, as well as the knowledgeable staff on hand to offer four-ounce samples and point out the subtleties of the dozen microbrews on tap, from the Beantown Nut Brown Ale to the Brookline Weizen Bock.
Relaxed and with an impressive beer menu, this outpost of the Boston Beer Works is perfect for sports fans looking for a few good brews before heading to Fenway.
Mix of Boston sports fans, students, young professionals, jocks, and birthday party groups, early 20s to mid-30s.

Full menu including salads, pizza, burgers, and sandwiches. Monthly themed beer specials such as golden ales in August, wheat beers in July, spicy selections in the winter, and pumpkin ales in October, featuring paired menu options.
