Brewery
Brato Brewhouse + Kitchen is an up-and-coming Boston-based brew pub founded by Alex and Jonathan, a couple of guys who really love great food and beer, and who are excited to serve their neighbors in the greater Boston area with a thoughtfully designed menu of creative hand-crafted dishes and craft beer offerings.

Brato intends to become a cornerstone of the community, sourcing raw materials for their kitchen from local sustainable sources. Partnerships with local farms and fisheries will give Brato access to the fresh meats, dairy, produce, and seafood that will make up the menu items, and although hops and yeast may come from various regions around the world, Brato’s fresh craft brews will frequently highlight local maltsters as they apply to specific beer recipes.

Love Brato, but they didn’t have the snitchzel sandwich. Was bummed because it’s freakin awesome. Otherwise place is the bomb. Great beer and awesome food at a reasonable price point.

The only thing better than the food and the beer and the atmosphere is the service. This is a place I love and will continue to love because it's absolutely the best. Brato is becoming the heart and soul of Brighton and I am grateful as can be for it

I was seated right away and Alexx provided top notch service throughout. The outdoor patio was perfect on summer evening, with delicious beers and food complemented by the little cucumber patches growing around the area.

Food was good, unfortunately service was terrible! We basically left because our waitress appeared to not want to take our order or acknowledge our presence unless we flagged her down or went inside asking someone else for help.

One of the best places for a casual night out in Boston. The food is always great (Nashville chicken wings!), creative and diverse styles of beer (IPA options but they never dominate the menu), and the staff are the best around.

I can be somewhat indifferent to food at restaurants. A lot of restaurant food often feels overpriced and not so great. But I was pleasantly surprised by Brato's Brewhouse & Kitchen. The gazpacho was one of the best I've ever had at a restaurant (have a recipe I've made that I've always enjoyed) and the flight of grilled cheese were incredibly tasty and cooked perfectly. We also shared the buffalo cauliflower that were spicy but not too hot. And, the beer, was perfect on summer night, sitting outside.

Outdoor seating is on a slight hill. My back hurt after sitting on the crooked chair/slope. The food was delicious and service was excellent. Loved the beer selection as well. Will be back.

WOW loved this place! The patio area is super cute and we were seated there, however it began to rain so we moved indoors. The shrimp caesar salad was YUM and meatballs had a spicy kick at the end that we really liked. The vibe inside was FUN due to the music, high ceilings, & staff. I like that the menu gives 5 ounce pours and 8 ounce pour options. I created my own " beer flight" by getting the 5 ounce pours. Definitely going back with friends.

The beer was great and the food was AMAZING. The Brighton hot tenders were honestly some of the best fried chicken I’ve ever had. And my indecisive self loved the fact that I could get a flight of grilled cheeses to try every kind they had. We will absolutely be going back!!

Everything that Chef Jon Gilman does is magical. Brato is a great example of it. The food is always seasonal and delicious, the drinks (both alcoholic and non alcoholic!) are great, and the ambiance is hard to beat. Overall an awesome experience every time. We love it!!

We met friends at Brato for a birthday celebration on the Patio. Our drink orders came quickly, a mix of the ales, IPAs, saison, and shrub. Each of these was abcolutely delicious!
Our food came out as we were finishing our first round of drinks, so we ordered seconds.
Our meals ranged from the tenderly delicious steak tips, to the bluefish special, to the amazing grilled cheese flights, and their famous homade bratwurst on a bun.
We highly recommend Brato to everyone looking for great beer and food wrapped up in a warm, friendly place to hang out with your buds.

Love Brato. We call their patio the "bratio." The beer is delicious, although its always rotating and you can't quite expect to get the same brew twice. This does mean that sometime they don't have many options or not much variety, but its not much of an issue because I've never tried a Brato beer I don't like. The food is damn good. Buffalo cauliflower is a personal favorite. Great place.
