My first experience with CBC was perfect. The beer variety was excellent. I had a caesar salad that was very well prepared. The bartender was super kind and courteous, he even helped me out by letting me borrow his phone charger!

Probably some of the worst beer I've ever tasted. Nothing is that exciting about it, nor does it taste any better than bud or coors. The food was "meh" at best, nothing creative and nothing wow inducing. We had a reservation and our table still wasn't ready when we got 9pm. Definitely not a place anyone should go to ever.

I first came here back in March 2014. I ordered a lamb shank and an assortment of beers, but wasn't impressed. Now that I'm back in Boston 8 months later, I figured I'd give them another shot because I really like to support local breweries. Well, unfortunately my experience couldn't have been more mediocre. I ordered a CBC burger, which is a basic burger with glazed onions. Medium. Of course, it came out medium well. Easily one of the most unremarkable burgers I've ever had. The flavor was lacking in every way. The presence of the glazed onions was it's only saving grace. I've heard the calamari is great, but my server wouldn't get me a side or half order of it because "it's all pre-weighed." I feel like that's not too much to ask, but apparently there's no flexibility here. Now for places specifically labeled as breweries, I feel I should rate based on the beer rather than the food. Well, that doesn't help. All of the beer has the consistency of water. There's no body. I had their three darkest brews tonight, including an imperial stout at >10% ABV, and they were all incredibly easy to drink. The flavors were basic. The mouthfeel was all the same - very light. Not to mention, not that I say this often, the service was lackluster. My beer was allowed to run dry, my server mysteriously disappeared for half an hour while another attempted to cover the whole bar by herself. Not impressed. This place is geared towards college kids in their early 20s, and nobody else. The only thing going for it is a decent pub atmosphere. If you want to try some interesting beers or food, look elsewhere.

"Beerunch." This meal's name alone just sounds of success. We actually didn't plan on coming here at all, but when The Friendly Toast's wait was upwards of an hour, we decided to ditch it. A friend had seen a sign outside of CBC announcing that they served brunch until 4. So here we were. Our group of 7 was immediately seated. Take that, Friendly Toast! The atmosphere is definitely more pub-like than most places I frequent for brunch, and there was a slightly strange odor in the air (cleaning products, maybe?), but we were all impressed by the variety of brunch fare. Oh and of course the beer. They had some seasonal offerings like apple cider donuts, and apparently there's always a special "eggs benny." I go for today's apple sausage eggs benny ($11) which is whole wheat toast topped with savory sausage, a poached egg, and apple cider hollandaise with a side of potatoes and peppers. A great dish! The sausage and cider sauce proved to be a great twist on the classic. My friend ordered the eggs in purgatory ($10) which is 3 poached eggs in a "spicy" tomato broth with crostini. Considering the devilish name, I expected the dish to be pretty dang hot, but it was mild. The flavor was nice though, and the soup-like tomato concoction still had a warming effect. My sweet-minded friend loved her french toast, which was thick, chewy, and tasted like fall. I wish they had more warm drink options (only coffee and tea) since I love me some strong stuff in a mug. Okay, The Friendly Toast, you get a point for your beverage options. But if you're feeling a beer and brunch combo, "beerunch" has become your new B(eer)FF.

My friend and I were originally going to go out to a restaurant called Lord Hobo (weird name, right?) for his 21st birthday dinner. However, he got turned away at the door because of a policy that said you couldn't be at the bar until the day after your 21st. Sounds crazy, but makes sense since some places like to keep a reputation of not having new 21 year olds getting smashed at the bar (those weren't his intentions, but how would they know that?). So we walked around for a bit and stumbled upon Cambridge Brewing Company. They were extremely accommodating on such short notice, especially during rush-hour dinner time on a Saturday night. We said we wanted to hold a table for 6 to 8 people and they said they could but we should wait at the bar until the rest of our party got there. The bar-tender gave my friend a beer on him and let him taste 5 different beers. The beers were delicious, especially the Sgt. Pepper (which is tough for me to say because I don't like The Beatles...). When the rest of our party showed up, we got our table and got dinner and a tower of beer. The food was delicious and the service was top-notch. I am really glad that the first restaurant turned us away, because our experience at CBC was wonderful.

A good place to hangout with friends. The beer is good. Sometimes there is mead. The food is also good. The service is friendly.

Always a great selection of their own brews. All different kinds for all different tastes. Food is pretty decent. I usually just get the Buffalo Tenders. They are deliciously spicy and tender. They've got a great outdoor patio that is prime during the warmer months.

Popped in here to meet some friends on a Wednesday evening and easily grabbed an outdoor table around 5:30pm. By 6pm, however, it was packed both inside and out. Love the local beer selections (Lil HalPeno especially), the service was great and the menu was extensive, if not heavy in offerings. The vegetarian nachos are quite a plateful, so don't plan to eat it by yourself, even if you're ravenous. They're delicious though, with various beans (easily discarded if you're me) and great cheese which tastes above what I'm used to for nachos.
