Beer Works: Brookline Ave.
Beer snobs, rejoice. Beer Works is one of the only sports bars in town that doesn't make you feel guilty about not ordering a Bud Light. You can do that inside Fenway. You don't need to do it next door. So order a Hercules Strong Ale. Pound some nachos. And watch the game in high def., knowing that, somewhere else in the city, some frat guys just paid 16 bucks for a pitcher of Coors.
