THIS RESTAURANT IS CLOSED Commonwealth Brewing Company Restaurant Review

: Commonwealth Brewing Company delivers just what you’d expect from a place that’s not much more than a full-court shot from the Fleet Center. Suits on their way to company boxes, the boys out for some suds and hoops, and other like-minded guys (and some gals) pump up the volume in this oft-deafening, two-level space. Brewer Geoff Charnik’s brewed-on-premises ales make Commonwealth a citywide hophead destination. Embrace your Inner Athlete with a game of pool or darts. The recent arrival of Chef Michael Rice (formerly executive sous chef at Anago) means the once-dreary food selection (mostly fare you’d find served in a back yard) will no doubt improve. We’ll keep you posted on just how much.
