We went here after walking from the science museum so we were Hungry. The beer I got was the Hendrix and for being out of gin barrels it didn't have any of the gin / oak flavor. My husband and I both got pizzas and...More

Came in for lunch. The feel here is more of a restaurant that simply has beer rather than a brewery. I had a burger,it was good. Again though its really just like any other restaurant that serves beer you, don't get a brewery vibe.

We've been here before and enjoyed the food and beer. This time also was good, but the salad was not as good as before. We will come back but be more specific in telling the server what we want.

Very nice atmosphere. This was the first place we ate at when we arrived in Massachusetts. My boyfriend enjoyed the flight of beer he ordered, food was good, overall a nice experience. If you're into craft beers, definitely worth a stop at.
