I enjoyed that place a lot when I lived in Boston. Personally, I prefered the one on Canal Street.

Love the one on canal street. I always stop there for dinner and few beers before a Cs game. The beer is great and the meatloaf is phenomenal!

I personally like the one in Salem because it's never jammed for sox/celts/bruins games. The other are huge compared to the one up north. They're opening another one in Lowell iirc.

There is a new one in Lowell, but it is not very good. I like the one next to the Garden the best.

I will say, they all rock . But I prefer the Salem one because it is right down the street. Try the Pumpkinhead, Watermelon, or Witch City Red all are unbelievable... top it off with some steak tips and forget about it.

The best part of SWMBO's job is her firm throws an open bar end of tax season party at the one on Canal St. every year. This is why I spent so much on the ring!

Just wondering why you say that. I've been to the Brewery Exchange quite a bit in the past, but not much recently since they stopped brewing there. I was getting excited to head there now the BBW owns it, but would like to hear more of your opinion. Also, what's the layout like there now? Used to be nice restaurant on the ground floor, pub/pool tables/dance floor on the second, and private room on the third. Does BBW own all of it now?

I like Boston Beer Works, however their Belgian White tastes like a mix between Legos and an old tent... It was the first beer I have ever sent back...

Boston beer works owns everything to the left of the Brewery Exchange. The layout is really wierd. They usually don't have 3-5 beers that are on the menu. The food is fairly expensive. I wish there were a brewpub around. I am thinking about trying the Tap in haverhill to see if it is any good.

I've never been a big fan of any of the chain brew pubs. They all seem to be a bit pricey and the beer seems sub par. The tap is awesome. They have some of the best beers I've had at any brew pub. The food is excellent and the prices aren't bad. I'll even have to say the service was way above par.
