How can it be better than drinking good beer right across the street from Fenway Park? Food was good, although way too crowded... they are well organized, however. Beer was good, but not outstanding (Victory White and Bluebeery Ale were the exception). I would go here every time I get to go to a game... once or twice a year.

Big, industrial looking place by the baseball stadium. I imagine it gets packed in here at game time, though on Thanksgiving day it was empty. Lots of beer on tap here, like 20 at my count. Some decent stuff here, though nothing solidly amazing. Service was... well, itís Boston afterall. Bartenders were friendly enough to me, though downright nasty to some people.

The Fenway branch of Beer Works is functional but lacking in atmosphere (at least on a Sunday evening when there wasnít a game on). Itís open plan, with lots of standing room, presumably to allow for the very large crowds that descend on match days, and there are banks of television screens showing sport. There were twenty beers on when we visited and the range was very similar to that on offer in Canal Street. (Visited 28 October 2012).

Came by on a non-game day and easy to grab a seat at the bar. I ordered a flight of 4 beers, all hoppy numbers and actually werenít too bad. Service was fine although the bartender would disappear for moments at a time but nothing to affect the experience and it didnít seem to bother the other patrons. I didnít eat on my visit. Handy spot next to Fenway is a positive if youíre attending a game.

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 can have 2 or 3 pre-game 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.
