Boston Beer Works

Looking for a place that brews their own beer and serves up some good bar food? Look no further than Boston Beer Works, with conveniently placed locations by North Station and Fenway. My roommate and I were walking randomly around Boston, trying to find some good places to get some drinks. The first place we came across was the Elephant and Castle; the second was Boston Beer Works by North Station.

This was the first time either of us had been here and it was about 4 o'clock in the afternoon, so I can't say what this place is like at night. It seemed like a cool place to go before games at the Garden (people were already there boozin' for the 7 o'clock Bruins game). We took a seat at the bar and ordered up some large glasses of the Bullfinch Bitter...you get two sizes to choose from for beers - a classic 16oz. pint or a 22oz. glass. The Bullfinch Bitter wasn't the greatest, but it was pretty good; it seemed to lack a bit of flavor. They had about 15 other microbrews, so I'm sure they had some good ones other there.

We got an order of the spinach and artichoke dip, which was pretty damn good. But for some reason they decide to give you about half a pound of dip, which would surely result in a heart attack if one tried to consume the whole portion. In all, I would make a trip back to Boston Beer Works to try some more of the beer and food menu...and I would check out the Fenway location just because it is more convenient.
