Smallish bar with plenty of tables and a great patio in the back for the warmer months. A good amount of tables but spread out well enough that you never feel like a can of sardines. A decent amount of TVs so that you're never not in sight of whatever game might be on.
Service is great and they are pretty quick and seem to be knowledgeable about beer. Always carry 99 bottles in stock and the taps rotate regularly with great variety.
Food leaves a little to be desired but its solid bar food and lets face it we come here for the beer.
Prices are very reasonable and I always find a reason to come back week after week. Highly recommended for any beer fan.

This place is a MUST. It's very cozy. A nice natural wood bar, lots of classic empties on the wall, the other patrons were friendly and talkative. I even got to sample a chili beer not on the menu! Also: GREAT out door patio with TV's for when it's a busy sports night.
The service was outstanding. My glass never got to empty, even when my friend and I were the only ones outside. The bartender himself came outside and asked us what we wanted to try next. He was also very courteous and had a great attitude.
The beer selection was awesome. They had flower power, sixpoint resin dipa, southern tier imp chocolate stout, and other great beers on tap. They have had kbs on tap too. They also have standards on tap (Sams, Harpoon). They also carry rotating beers from 100 different breweries (bottle).
I got a burger that could drown a dolphin and it was messy delicious. You can get spicy fries instead of normal for no extra charge. I have a good appetite and I ALMOST couldn't finish my burger.
After my huge burger and four top notch draft beers, my bill was thirty bucks. Enough said.

Just a great beer bar which on the south shore in ma. Is rare. 99 great bottles of beer and about 20 more on tap that rotate a great mix of local beer and top notch craft brews.Great pub food, reasonable prices, and service that is knowledgable and attentive makes the brew house such a great spot .Tom the owner does a great job of mixing up the beers so things don't get stale it seems every time I go in there I can always try something new .

Stopped in here this past week after work with some friends. Parking here must be insane on the weekends, not a lot of parking spaces. Inside, it's a small bar, but it's cozy. Tons of breweriana on the walls, and a couple of tvs. Service was awesome the whole night, as our waitresses were quick and friendly. Selection was excellent too. They have about 15-20 taps, and 100 bottles. I had the Firestone Walker 15th Anniv, Victory Yakima Glory, and a pint of Blue Hills Red Baron on cask, which was tasty. Prices were anywhere from $5-$7 for a beer, so not bad. Food was good too. Had a burger which was cooked well, and the nachos were loaded. This place seems like a favorite amongst the locals, and for good reason. Plenty of great beers in a relaxed pub.

I have been here plenty of times and have done there 99 bottles of beer, so I have decided to do a review for this great establishment.
Atmosphere: This is a typical local bar with a lot to offer. Plent of beer and sports signs throughout the whole bar and outside in the patio area. Also, the hundreds of plaques with quotes from people that have finished their 99 bottles of beer. Their are high tops, 20 chairs at the bar, and a seasonal patio area that has patio tables and chairs and tv's on if weather permits.
Quality: The quality of the beer is great. Over 100 different bottles of beer and 16 rotating draft lines. I have been able to try some rare beers on draft like KBS, FW 14, and Sierra Stung that the owner was a part of.
Service: The service and good too. The wait staff and bartenders are very knowledgeable about the beer and the menu. Questions can be answered and you can find out about a beer very easily through a quick taste in a rocks glass.
Selection: 16 rotating drafts and a firkin almost every Friday. Plus over 100 bottles beers from around the world. Great stuff.
Food: Typical bar food, but really good. They always have specials and good bar grub to go with some great craft beers.
Value: This place is reasonable and keeps me coming back their to try out new and different beers. I will have to say that I love everything about the place and will keep going there for many years to come. Stop by if you are in the South Shore.

I have visited this place many times over the past few years. They have a decent selection of drafts that rotate on a regular basis. They usually have a few drafts that stand out among the rest to choose from. They also have an impressive bottle selection to choose from. It's approximately 99 bottles give or take a few that change every so often. You can choose to take on the challenge of drinking all of the beers on the list and getting a placard made for you and put up in the pub. I have yet to defeat this challenge. The brew house also serves some excellent food. Their buffalo chicken nachos are a must buy. I usually get them with extra hot peppers. Also they have some other good things like pub pizzas and sandwiches. I highly recommend checking this place out sometime.

I've been to the Union Brewhouse in Weymouth, MA numerous times and I would highly recommend it for a place to try beers that aren't found everywhere and also as a good place to relax and watch a game. There is indoor and outdoor seating (seasonally). The staff at the Union Brewhouse provide excellent service and they are very friendly making it feel like Weymouth's own version of "Cheers." It seems to be an undiscovered hideaway.
As far as beer selection goes, there is the 99 club you can join where you are given a card with 99 different bottles of beer on it (well actually 99 brewing companies-the actual beers change on a regular basis) and you can enter the "99 Club" once you've drank the 99 beers on your card. You get the beer crossed off each time you order a beer from the list. The Brewhouse offers at least 99 different beers on any given day and the selection is incredible.
The prices are reasonable and the beers are good. The food, however, leaves a lot to be desired and I wouldn't recommend the food here.
Overall, as someone who has been to the Union Brewhouse enough to be a member of the 99 Club and have a plaque to that effect on the wall of this locale, I highly recommend the Union Brewhouse in Weymouth. Check it out!

Staff is always attentive and quick to offer another drink. Very knowledgeable about what they are offering, and love to talk to you about the beer you a drinking, no matter if you are a novice beer drinker, or a major beer geek. Great selection, over 100 beer's and 17 rotating taps. "Beer club" which encourages you to try the all the beers they have to offer. Typical pub food. Good portions. Always served hot and in a timely fashion. Pizzas and apps served late. Love the location, get to hang out in a relaxed atmosphere and enjoy great beer without going into Boston.

Probably fitting that I pick my nearest decent beer bar on the South Shore for my first review.
The Brew House is tucked away on Route 53 and while it looks absolutely tiny from the outside it's only slightly larger on the inside. But I've been going here for years and if you head here before 7pm or so there's usually not a problem finding a spot at the bar or grabbing a table. A parking spot may be much more difficult to get.
For the relative small size of the building there's still about a 20 seat bar and a good number of tables. There's deck seating during the nice summer weather. I've always gotten good service from the staff, they may not be experts about what's on draft but they're very attentive. The place is always good for a game or two of Golden Tee or whatever other video game they have.
Food is general pub-style, with burgers, sandwiches, steak tips and the like. I've always been partial to their pub pizzas which are generally just the right size for a meal out.
Beer-wise I find they have the best selection in this area of the state and turnover their drafts quite often. During the most recent visit they had 17 beers on draft. In addition to local favorites like Blue Hills, Wachusett, and Harpoon they also had Dale's, Berkshire Brewing Steel Rail, and Troegs. I had a Southern Tier Harvest (is it fall already?), a Lake Placid Ubu (very impressive), and a Clown Shoes Eagle Claw Fist, (an IPA disguised as an amber). I've never been disappointed with their draft list here. They also have their 99 bottle list, but I usually don't get past the drafts.
As a local to the area I hate to go more than a week or two without stopping in because I never know what they may have on draft.

One of my favorite haunts. Very small but comfortable with a very friendly vibe. Only stop in every 3 months or so but the bartender always remembers my name and my I.P.A. and Belgian preferences.
Always a great selection on tap and very reasonable prices.
Food is standard pub fare but the pizza are pretty good if ordered well done.
Over all I would recommend this bar to anyone with out a moments hesitation.
On my last visit a enjoyed a couple 12oz serving of 10 commandments from lost abbey. Also finished off the visit with an I.P.A. from blue hills brewing. Lots of citrus flavor from the amarillo hops .
