We’re always looking to make The Infatuation the best platform to find restaurants, and we appreciate your feedback!

Hi Infatuation reader. With restaurants around the country reopening, we understand that socializing in any form might still feel strange, and poses risks too. Should you go out to eat? That’s up to you. But we’ll continue to keep you informed as best we can. If you have any questions or concerns, feel free to email us at community@theinfatuation.com.

Boston Breweries That Have Reopened

Updated June 30th, 2020

Early on, there was some confusion about whether breweries were allowed to reopen under phase two. Who would’ve thought that a government that bans Happy Hour and shuts down bars at 2am would be on the fence about beer gardens? Anyway, they’ve now figured out that people enjoy drinking outside, and breweries are happily serving pints again. Here are 17 spots open right now for outdoor drinking.

If your favorite brewery isn’t on this list, chances are they’re open for takeout and delivery, so you can still support them.
