Very nice location, especially after watching an event at TD Garden, but somehow the atmosphere was way too clinical for me, especially at the bar. No atmosphere, aluminium bar, bad smell from the kitchen. Seems to be a nice selection of their own beers, the price is decent and the service too, but I had absolutely no desire to stay here for a second glass.

Small chain brewpub. Beer is what youíd expect though slightly above average for brewpubs. Food is pub fare - pretty good. Nothing crazy. Worth checking out if you are in Boston.

Visited on 7/22/12.
A: The place has the feel of a huge sportsbar/microbrewery. It has tons of seating, two levels, and a smaller outdoor patio for seating.
Q: Slightly Above Average were the beers that we tried but nothing thatíll make you go out of your way to come here.
S: Our server was okay, semi knowledgable about the beers they served but was hard to find at times, especially given that the place was dead when we went.
S: A nice variety of different beers, I believe they offered 16 in house beers that covered the gambit well enough.
F: Decent for bar food but nothing better than your average chain.
V: Decent value, beers and food were priced well and on par for the area and quality that they were serving
Overall, if your in the area then recommend stopping in but not a place youíd go out of your way for.

This is a large restaurant with the ambiance of a big chain brewpub. Much of the regular tap selection is fairly mundane with a few more interesting things on the rotating taps. The beer itself was okay. I just had some nachos for a snack, which were very tasty. It wasnít busy during my 2:00 on a Friday visit. Itís worth checking out if youíre in the neighborhood.

The Beer Works in Canal Street is one of a small chain of brewpubs. Itís a cavernous factory style building with bare brickwork, exposed pipes and vents and an interior that looks as if itís been built out of meccano. It can get busy on match days because itís just round the corner from the Bruins stadium.
The bar is wrapped around the brewing kit. As youíd expect, all the beers are usually in good condition and itís served in 12, 16 and 22 oz glasses. I seem to remember from previous visits that the food is OK, with a regular menu going beyond the usual burgers.
(Last visited 26 October 2012).

Decent beer and good service at this place. Parking is terrible! I canít imagine that place when a game is going on down the street.

Large modern place on teo levels. Brew equipment is on display, but some of it looks like itís for show only. Beers were OK, staff was helpful.

Several visits over several years. Always a good time, food is typical pub fare but not greasy. Try the blueberry beer... they even float real blueberries in it, and they dance in the carbonation! A real crowd pleaser. We always try everything they have on, but we keep going back for the blueberry. A must-stop whenever Iím in Boston.

Saturday nights are pretty crowded. While waiting for a table, we had a drink on the 2nd floor. It took quite a while before we could order and even (much) longer before we got our drinks. All at the bar, mind you, no service. I did get my sample flight though, that I thought was pretty neat. Beers were average, some below, a couple above. Food was ok, but not excellent. Fries were cold and soft. And I know thereís nothing like Belgian fries, but we had better in the States than here.
