Was in Boston for the Nutcracker and went out with my son in law. Great atmosphere with community seating. Plenty of craft beers on tap. Large viewing area of the stills. If you’re in Dorchester and want a good beer stop in.

Nice vibe brewery a bit off the trodden path even for Boston. Live music frequently and always an interesting mix of their own beers with guest beers from NY & NJ (& others). Young crowd kinda place... ah to be 25 again!

Stopped in for the first time at Dorchester Brewing and have to say really enjoyed it. Great space and nice people. The vibe is exactly what you want in a small local brewery.

....and a decent stop too. Four beer samplers, each very different from the other: we were indoors with a great view of the massive tanks used for the birth of the brews we were consuming. Worth a visit. Definitely.

They make their own brews but are also a production house for other breweries- that means a nice selection on tap! It tends to get busy (surprise) around happy hour although they didn't seem to be offering any specials. Still, service was quick and friendly....More
