Boston Beer Works
With its shark skewers, fried pickles, creamy Irish stouts, and blueberry beer with real berries fizzing on the bottom of the glass, there's no better place than Boston Beer Works for pre– and post–Red Sox festivities. The place is a little less crowded than the Lansdowne Street pubs on game nights and relatively subdued (in a good way) in the off-season. Same goes for hockey and basketball season at the restaurant's TD Garden location, which sports a second floor dedicated entirely to pool. Both venues have a great grub, drink, and social atmosphere year-round.
