Visited on 5th October 2017. Huge high end fish restaurant a block or so down from Trillium. A huge display of oysters on ice greet you as walk in. The decor is very smart and modern. The beers are displayed above the bar which is a cool touch. We weren't eating so sat at the bar and had a couple of beers. The range was excellent with some interesting choices. Prices were pretty good and service was excellent. Definitely one to stop off at.
This restaurant is more popular for its food than its beer, but the beer is superb with many unusual and newly available offerings. Excellent seafood, particularly the oysters. Very popular--often difficult to find space. My only complaint is the expense.

Seafood restaurant with a serious beer list. No crap on tap, not even close. So serious breweries and a lot of beers with fewer than 10 rates, so there's stuff for the power nerd here. The staff all seem quite knowledgeable about beer, and genuinely interested. That's rare, and awesome.
Last stop in BOS. I was sent here by the people of Trillium, its just a few doors away. They are a rather big, spaceous restaurant. (sea)Food is stored fresh on ice, including many fancy choices , they looked great. The bartender was very friendly, rather hasty, but I'd prefer calling him efficient, as this didn't suffer the quality of him helping me out. He provided me with a great IPA which I did enjoy . Prices are rather high, but at least the quality of the place makes up for that.
This is an interesting place to review, as Ive never intentionally set out to come here. Its always a late night, post BA fest at the Seaport idea. And its almost always with brewery friends. So after a long day of drinking and pouring beers, where do the brewers go when theyre in Boston? This place. Its great. Huge, open space, great beer menu, and good food. Its certainly worth a stop if youre in the area. And likely even worth going there earlier in the day before youve started drinking. I just know the next time Ill visit will probably be after a few other places. This is the place you end up at, not the one you start at.
Stopped by after Trillium. A nice old building with a modern touch. A good tap and bottle list. Good service. The food we had was very good. The clam chowder was great.

Nice tap list and decent, if not highly overpriced bottle list. Food looked good, but we just stopped in for a quick beer. Would like to try the food here next time.
Rerate - visited a year later and had food. Also 3 Font A&G blend from the bottle list!
Twenty some beers on tap and a nice bottle list available here, and it is next door to the Trillium pick up station. Service was great. Food was excellent. Perhaps a bit pricey. Great seafood selection. Has about everything you could want.
Interesting place that looks raw which fits in with it being a beer geek place. However most of the clientele on the Tuesday I was there for lunch looked like businessmen and the food selection seems more like a good sea food restaurant than your typical water hole. Good selection of beers, however at the day none from Trillium. Very nice seafood, had oysters and lobster tacos. Prices of food and beer not cheap.
