Baseball stadiums are typically awash in expensive, mass-marketed beer, but you can now find good beer at Fenway Park if you know where to look.
Wachusett Green Monsta IPA and Blueberry Ale, Cisco Brewing Whale’s Tale Pale Ale, Magic Hat #9, and Smuttynose IPA are available on tap this season. You can find them at:
-- Private Suites
-- EMC Club
-- State Street Pavilion
-- Centerfield “Big Concourse”
-- Right Field Concessions
-- Yawkey Way
The beers join offerings from Samuel Adams and Harpoon. I did a big takeout story last year on craft beer at Major League ballparks and the Red Sox declined to participate. At that time Fenway's offerings were some of the worst in the league. Parks in Anaheim and Cleveland are offering far more extensive craft beer lists, but this is a start for Fenway. Sox fans can take solace in the fact that the situation is worse at the new Yankee Stadium.
If you're looking for good beer outside the ballpark, some of my favorite spots right nearby are the Lower Depths, Cornwalls, Eastern Standard, Jerry Remy's (the photo to the left is from the Remy's roofdeck), and the Baseball Tavern.
