Slesar Bros. Brewing Company was formed in 1990. "Boston Beer Works", their first brewery/eatery opened at 61 Brookline Avenue, across from Fenway Park in 1992. It was the culmination of years of restaurant and brewing experience and it quickly became a success. Providing an extensive menu of handcrafted ales and lagers and a varied menu of freshly prepared bold American cuisine to the thirsty and hungry masses.
An instant landmark, "Boston Beer Works" not only recognized and capitalized on the microbrewery trend it pushed the boundaries. Here, the restaurant layout took the beer making process and exposed it allowing our guests the chance to taste, touch and smell the complete beer making experience. This "naked and true" interior concept still exists in the store today and has been extended to all our locations.
In 1996, the Slesar Bros. opened "Salem Beer Works" in Historic Salem, MA. It is still the only brewery/eatery in town and is equally popular among locals and tourists. In 2000, the Slesar Bros. opened a second "Boston Beer Works" at 112 Canal Street near the TD Garden. Our flagship, it features two enormous bars, 15,000 square feet of space and championship billiard tables in the second floor lounge as well as our corporate offices. In 2008, Slesar Bros. opened "Lowell Beer Works" and the "Beer Works Production Brewery & Bottling Facility" in Lowell, MA.
"Beer Works" also provides its hand-crafted ales and lagers - along with an abreviated menu - at 3 Logan Aiprort "Beer Works Outlets" at Terminals C and E.
After almost 20 years in business, the goal remains the same. Create a cool, unique, Boston area based Brewery-Restaurants that offer exceptional food and beer to our guests. We still brew over 50 variations of lagers, ales, stouts and pilsners each year and keep 15 micro-brews on tap at each location at any given time. And our food menu features over 90 variations of freshly prepared American foods including pub classics and unique specialties.
Well, that’s our history. We invite you to come, try us out, and be part of our future.
