Open interior supports plenty of thirsty Red Sox fans. There are two bars to provide twice as much service - or accommodate a special event. Server is alert and makes you feel welcome. Food is quite good, a cut above most bars. Their in-house brews are good, if not tip-top. Quiet in hue morning, but hopping during a sports event!

Popped in here before a Red Sox game while visiting Boston. Only had 1 beer and some appetizers. Food was ok, but the service wasnít anything notable. If Iím back in Boston for a game, Iíd give this place another go.

Because I had two and half hours to kill, I decided to pop in a nearby bar as my train didnít leave until 4:30pm. BBW-F is easy enough to find -- it is on Brookline, after all and not even a ten minute walk by foot to the Commuter rail at TD Gardens. I also thought it was probably the best place to serve the biggest craft selection in the area as everything else happened to be dive-bars and Irish pubs with only two or three things on tap. On the inside, it was dimly-lit and spacious. I sat down at the bar and I swear it took nearly four minutes for the bartender to say anything to me. He didnít look especially busy, either. Iíd ask him a question or two about the menu and the beers, and he softly mumbled his response and walked away. And this happened at least twice. When I finally got him for more than a few seconds, I could tell he just wanted me to order and fuck off with the questions. I would come again had the beer been any good, but it was genuinely close to being seriously revolting. I couldnít finish one of my beers, and it was only a 12 oz. pour but made me physically ill; I actually had to excuse myself to use the restroom as puking seemed not only possible but downright inevitable. I wonít be back.

The main thing this place has going for it is the location but that is also the problem if you happen to go before a Sox game it is just too crowded to enjoy. Their beers are mostly average but fresh brewed beer is still better than what the nearby bars are serving.

Not sure I get the mediocre ratings...yes most of the beers are good and not great (some are very good)...but the place is big and welcomng for a party crowd or pre-game stoking up. The food is as good as most pub grub at most beer bars. Whatís really special about this place is being across the street from Fenway! Címon...give me a break...you can have 2 or 3 pre-game craftbrews...watch the national anthem on the TVís in the bar...walk to the door with your beer where they take the empty glass from your hand...and still be in your seat by first pitch. It doesnít get any better than this! So does it really matter that these are not the best craftbeers? Well theyíre much better than anything youíll get in Fenway during the game. BTW...I say all of this as a...shhhh (Yankee fan)...LOL!

Nice and quiet on a snowy friday night. Not sure Iíd want to be here when the Sox are playing, though. Decent beer; standard but OK food. Lots of stainless--you know the drill.

Stopped by after the Red Sox game. Very large place, very crowded, but they handled it well. Great location and great atmosphere. Well worth a visit.

Jam packed on a Saturday game day. Staff was quick and friendly despite the chaos. Beers were solid. Atmosphere +1 for the view of the ballpark.

Almost embarrassingly, I went here twice in three days. Tons of house beers on tap, pretty good service, huge interior, and decent prices for Boston. The beers were okay for the most part. Some were good, some were pretty bad.

This is a cavernous brewpub with sixteen (!) house-made beers on tap. When I was there, four of the were fruit beers and based on what the people around me ordered, I can see why. Theyíre crazy popular. I tried a blueberry one and it tasted like shit. But I also had a Pale Ale on cask and and an India Pale Porter and they were both quite tasty. So, my advice is dodge the fruit beers and you can have a great beer experience. I asked the server what kind of hops were used in the Fenway Pale Ale and she said "cascade" right away. So that counts as knowledgeable in my book.
