So, sometime around 1990 or 1991, I came to CBC one evening and had the best beer I've ever had on American soil: an amazing blueberry wheat. I came a few other times in the early 1990s but haven't been back in 25+ years. I'm pleased to report that CBC is still going strong. This time, I didn't have any... More

If it's on tap - I highly recommend the Cerise Casée if it's on tap (or any sour they've got) - the Blunderbuss Barleywine is solid too. I had the fish and chips - which was light and crispy hit the spot. The brewer was friendly and pointed me right to the beers I'd like most.

Great food, delicious barley wine, nice pumpkin beer too. We were weekly patrons when living in Boston. Now, we go at least twice on every trip back! Outdoor seating in good weather which is dog friendly! Also, check out their events, really a fun time!

I saw this place one one of my visits. They were closed on that day. Decide to stop by today and check them out. They have their own beers on tap.

Found CBC while strolling around Cambridge on a snowy day. The Cambridge Amber was very welcome and absolutely excellent. The BBQ burger was delicious and just the right size for lunch. Another beer to wash it down was mandatory. A really enjoyable lunch. The bar was sadly quite empty. On the basis of my experience it should have been very... More

My wife and I enjoyed sitting on the patio on the restaurant and had some good beers. The food was a lot better than I expected. I would definitely recommend

The fish fry was fresh and tasty, the cole slaw better than average, and the portion size was just right. Menu with lots of variety and plenty of vegetarian options. Didn't try the beer the menu was extensive and the folks with me said it was excellent. Service a little sullen but it was Thanksgiving weekend.

What else can you say. Just a really great experience. Nice seasonal beers. Yummy burgers. Delicious sweet potato fries. Good fish snd chips. Calamari could have been less peppers and more calamari thou. Overall would return.

I went to Cambridge Brewing Company with family on a Sunday for brunch. The restaurant opens at 11 am, so I would suggest getting there a little before then if you're going to brunch, as a line starts to form. We were seated immediately when they opened which was awesome. I did notice that within 10 mins of the restaurant... More
