I personally find the sport screen culture a bit challenging at times. too many screens, too much noise and competing interests for me. The beer menu is overwhelming and I was sceptical, but, it was good and service was pretty good too. The food is good but not excellent. I can think of places I would rather go but this is a good back stop. Gets busy and I got carded on the door which as a bloke in his late 40’s was just a touch patronising.

It’s a Yard House. Lots of pretty good beers, never anything exciting or rare. Being right by Fenway, it’s a bit of a loud, crowded, young, drunk crowd. Definitely catering to the Fenway party scene over the craft beer drinker. I didn’t eat but food looks exactly what you’d expect from such a chain.

When I visited: Mid-September 2013. What I had: Ayinger Oktober Fest-Märzen, Stone 17th Anniversary Götterdämmerung IPA, Mayflower Porter, and Harpoon Rich & Dan’s Rye IPA on tap, Ginger-crusted Norwegian Salmon, Chicken Tortilla Soup and some white wines for the Mrs. What I liked: Lively atmosphere before the Red Sox game, ridiculously huge draught list with excellent style variation, quick service at the bar, we enjoyed our cozy, intimate booth for dinner after the game, very good food, proper glassware, three different serving sizes for beer, convenient location. What I disliked: Our waitress screwed up our orders so it took almost 45 minutes to get our food, but the manager comped everything so we left happy campers. Would I go back? Definitely. Aside from the one service issue (which was rectified), we had a great time here. Overall Rating: 82

This place is your best bet for craft beer in the Fens. Huge taplist that wasn’t crazy expensive and the food is alright too. I know it is a chain, so if you aren’t into that, avoid this place. But I quite enjoyed it.

This place is huge. This beer bar has a fancy feel to it. I drank an 80 Acre which wasn’t so fresh. With over 100 taps this is probably quite usual. I then got smart and ordered a RuinTen from the rotating tap list which only has 5 offerings. Prices are a little higher than other places I visited in Boston. Service was efficient. There aren’t a plethora of world-class beer focused establishments in this city, so The Yard House has to be considered as a stop.

The Yard House is located around the corner from Fenway Park and Lansdowne. It is very dark with a very large oval bar in the middle rear, tables iscattered in the front, and booths around the wall. Lots of TVs around and a lcd list of Tap and Bottle specials. Service is adequate (bartender did not know specials (and offered beers that had been unavailable for a while according to another server)), mistakes were also made by our server who brought the wrong beer for one of us. They have 135 standard and 5 "specialty" taps. Selection is very good with all quality ranges. Specials only had one "rarity", but it was tasty. Food was good - plenty of vegetarian options and the sweet potato fries were excellent. It is a little pricey for what you get - beers were about a dollar or two more than expected and food was about five dollars more...Overall this is a nice addition to the area for the beer lover, and one that I will re-visit when in the area, but not worth a special trip.

It may be a chain, but the atmosphere and beer selection are great. All of the waiters truly know their beer, and love to help you out.

Yard House is a California-based chain of beer bars. Their schtick is that they sell beer by the shortie (a sample size), pint, or, in the event that you’re an idiot, the yard. They also have 100+ beers on tap. But as you know, quantity is not quality. There’s a bit of shit and some pretty common micros that you find everywhere. Still, there were a few nice locals on tap and the service was good. They also have a small but carefully selected bottle list consisting of about five usually somewhat rare beers. Not the first place I’d go to in Boston but worth a stop if you’re in the area.

Brought here with a friend before my first game at Fenway. The interior is spacious, like a warehouse, but aim to sit in their outdoor patio. They have a crazy amount of beers on draft and their food menu is extensive and not pricy. The place lacks Red Sox ambience, but it’s the perfect Fenway pre game spot for beer lovers

This Yard House had a much better Tap list then the Dedham location a few months back. It is an upscale corporate atmosphere. We eat only an appetizer. (Burger Sliders) And they were quite good. Can’t comment on other food however, everything that passed us, looked well enough. The bartender was polite and courteous, he really needed more help. We stopped after a Red Sox game and he was really running back and forth a lot. Trying to keep up with the number of people. Well, it was after a game. I did expect that. Real solid draft list. Nothing that is going to impress the serious beer geek but… at least you have a variety of styles. Again, really a step above the other Massachusetts location.
