Cambridge Brewing Company in Kendall Square is technically a brewery in that it, uh, brews beer. But this place is not really what you think of when you see the term “brewery” - it’s a restaurant, and one that frequently gets packed despite serving pretty standard pub food. The beer is pretty good, though. As one of the oldest breweries in Boston, it has one of the larger tap selections you’ll find, including a Belgian IPA that’s one of our favorite beers. If you typically stay away from breweries because you only like to drink in places where you can also get buffalo chicken tenders, then this spots for you.
