The beer at Oak and Iron is consistently good, and very fresh. The outdoor tables are a pleasant spot when it's not horrendously hot (did that happen this summer?) and the indoor space is comfortable. Friday evenings it seems to fill up pretty quickly, so...More

Everything about this place is top notch, except the beer. I've had a lot of beer from a lot of places (mostly in New England), and I found Oak & Iron to just be mediocre. But inside and outside, this place impresses. I really loved...More

Our favorite, local place. Grab a pizza from Andover Deli or burgers from sauce and bring them here to sit outside or inside (a little noisy). If the parking lot is full, just park up the street near the railroad tracks. Wonderful people, best beer...More

I had heard a lot of great things about this place, so I must admit I was a little disappointed during my first visit this weekend. The beer is just "ok" -- nothing special. We did really enjoy the atmosphere with the exposed brick in...More

I had some time to kill in Andover and found this place. I was not familiar with them but was pleasantly surprised. Their DIPA was decent, nothing to write home about, but very drinkable. The pretzels were good, but the cheese sauce was practically inedible.
