Some General Notes

from my visit back in 1992
Prices: $2.25/half, $9.95/T-shirt

Nice place, not Real Big...good Thursday night crowd.

Had to drink half pints. "No samplers - it's the law, you know."

British malt, Cluster bittering, Golding and Cascade finishing. Some beers are dry hopped. Open fermenters, aged 1-6 weeks, fined and filtered. Traditional Ales (noted by * below) served via hand pumps.

Cajun calamari outstanding!

Commonwealth recently opened their second location in New York NY.

Directions: Take the T...Green or Orange Line to North Station/Boston Garden. With the Garden on your right, walk down Causeway Street, turn left on Portland.


My Opinion Of The Beers That I've Tried:
