A while back I posted a thread on the forum, stating my frustrations with the lack of good beer places on the South Shore. A few fellow BA's reccomended this place to me, and yesterday I could put up with it no longer, so I got some friends on board and we headed down Route 18 with all due haste.
Situated right off the end of Route 18 on Route 53, The Union Brewhouse is easy to find, and very accessible.
I thought it would be larger than it was but what it lacked in size, was made-up in great beer selection, food, and people.
The interior is cozy with nice bar, fireplace, and beer paraphanelia on the walls. Very tavern-like. I felt comfortable.
As I do look like I am 16, I was carded, which, because of my face, can only be deemed responsible management, haha.
Because of President's Day I went with the Liberty Ale by Anchor, followed by Laguinitas' Hairy Eyeball, and finally Sierra Nevada's Celebration Ale. My friends enjoyed Presidente, BBC Steel Rail, and some more I forget.
I had the Union Burger, which was very good. I can't speak for the other dishes, but my friends weren't vommiting or making strange faces, so I can only assume good things from the menu.
The bartenders, who also waited tables, were awesome. They were nice, funny, and had a general humorous manner about them.
As we ate and drank we watched the Olympics on the numerous TV's throughout the establishment.
It was a good time, and I look forward to the next.
Cheers to the Union Brewhouse!
 Since going several times over the last year, I have to say that if you go on a night when there's football, or baseball on, it becomes a meat locker. it's packed to the brim, with many loudmouths, who like to blast sappy metal music on the juke box, and you can't even enjoy the red sox while drinking your beer. My first review happened to be when no sporting events were on in February, so i guess buisness was slower and more tame.

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.
