Love the beer. They have craft beer that tastes like 'beer" If you like beer that is a bit 'hoppy' try this beer. Staff was very friendly.

Girl on cash and guy in back were very unfriendly. Didn't feel welcome. Very uncomfortable experience. Grabbed some beer (in hindsight, I should have left with nothing) without any guidance. Beer was not particularly good. I'll stick with other local breweries. Really left a bad...More

Nothing special about the tour of a microbrewery (one is much the same as another) but the tasting at Boxing Rock was great fun. Sampler tray included 4x4-oz. glasses of one of the South Shore's great little beer producers. Hunky Dory is the only beer...More

The tour is over priced but the beer is good. The ambiance is ok and they have a food truck like canteen out front. The service is good and they have some great beer with good variety.
