The place is permanently closed. Lights off and no signs. Look it up on google and you’ll find that it is closed because they filed for bankruptcy. Please take it off this app so that people don’t go there like I did only to find all the lights off.

We went for happy hour and my husband enjoyed many oysters. I had the prosciutto pizza and truffle fries. My husband had a flight of IPA and I had this awesome Rose! I would certainly go back if I was in the area again!

We went here Sat night to watch the Celtics game with 2 friends. Service was fantastic even during the game. They put us at a table right in front of a tv for a great view. We stuck with beer and appetizers and everything was good. Have been here before and it is a great local restaurant.

This was our 2nd time patronizing Hopsters in the last few weeks. We had the same waiter both times (Hakuna- I hope I'm spelling it right). He was extremely friendly and attentative to our needs. Although it was rather slow (Monday evening), the 2nd visit was just as good as our first. Food was very good.

Location and space are great! Beers were expensive and the prices are not listed on the menu. One of mine was $15 and was filled mostly with ice! Was not expecting that for a beer. Food was pretty average. Brussels were decent but the wings were dry and the squash flatbread was not good. It tasted like rosemary only which was confusing since that wasn’t listed as an ingredient and the hot pepper was missing.

Had a great time at Hopsters. We decided to try the new beer inspired cocktails and they were delicious. (Loved the Cherry Harbor Delight and Beer Sangria.) Also shared a pizza and a few small plates, which were ALL so yummy that I’m still thinking about them. Definitely worth it to check out and go back again and again!

Slightly more upscale bar food in a cool brewing setting. Beers were pretty good but certainly not worth the $9-14 price tag for them. Overall, decent but expensive place for some snacks and drinks

Went there with my family of 4 on a slow, Sunday afternoon, sat inside, and it was perfect. Location is ideal and the interior is very "upscale brewery" and feels like a large space. We ordered fries, zucchini poppers, and the pepperoni pizza, and everything was excellent. The beers are delicious and you have so many to choose from. Thank you for having a stout and a porter during the summer!

My one critique is in regard to the rule that does not allow customers to include beers over 9% abv in the beer flights. I understand they don't want everyone getting four 10 or 11% beers but they should allow ONE of the 4 beers in a flight to be above 9%, especially since many of the beers on the menu are above 9%. You feel like you're missing out by not being allowed to include any of those in a flight.
Other than that, I love everything about Hopsters!

Hi Anna, Thank you so much for coming in to Hopsters! We agree that the Zucchini Tater Tots are "chef's kiss delish"! In regards to flight ABV percentage - this policy is in place to ensure the safety of our guests. With current regulations, we feel more comfortable putting a limit on % intake for flights, those tasters can really sneak up on you! I hope you understand! Looking forward to having you again!

Transparently, we made a last minute at Hopster's on a Friday night because our go to's were fully booked. Hopster's is NOW most definitely one of our go to's. All of the 'snacks' and 'shareables' were AMAZING. You have to try the brussel sprouts and the fried chicken. We got basically everything on the menu and loved it all. We raved over the desserts. Seemed weird to be so pleased with the food selection at a brewery focused restaurant, but 10/10.

My family enjoyed some great beers/cocktails tonight and some amazing food. There were so many small plates/apps we were dying to try, so we ordered almost everything! Absolutely loved the cauliflower, Brussels, burrata, fries, flatbreads, empanadas, Caesar salad as well as both new dessert options. Portions were big especially for the seaport. Already looking forward to leftovers for tomorrow. Our server, Jorge, was phenomenal - very attentive and friendly conversation. Hakwoo also was great helping and checking in on us. Love the staff there. Such a great place for dinner, definitely check it out.

Our meal was very mixed in terms of quality - the Brussels sprouts and hummus dip were great...really delicious, but the toasted bread with the hummus was cold and hard and the fried chicken was so salty we could barely eat it. And my son was very disappointed that they have done away with the kids menu.....

Thank you for sharing your experience at Hopsters. We had been open for 12 days when you came in after we were closed for 4 months due to COVID. Much like every restaurant in the USA, we have had to pivot in many different directions in a very short amount of time. We are not nearly operating at 100% in any facet of our business model and that includes not having a Kids Menu at this time. As we do appreciate our guests experiences, we hope our guests understand this while dining. Thank you.

Hopsters was the perfect location for our friends get-together, a hidden gem in the Seaport. We were excited to try the beers and the new chef’s menu from social media posts and we were not disappointed. Beers were very nice and brewed to the style, which we appreciated. Of the many small plates we got, we LOVED the brussel sprouts with spicy feta, wing special, and both the Margherita and prosciutto pizzas. It was so nice to not have the regular pub food you find at craft brew pubs but rather an upscale dining experience. The vibe is very inviting. There were some people brewing their own beer upstairs where you can also find a nice open kitchen. Our waiter was very attentive and personable which also made the experience great.

Beer isn’t anything special. Our waiter asked us for our order, returned our drinks, left us for 15 minutes then apologized because he did not remember he was our waiter.

We ordered beer cheese and it came with only 2 slices of break (not enough for the dip) and when we asked for more they wanted to up charge us. This was toasted white bread, not artisan bread, focaccia, etc. and we had to speak to the manager.

Their drop the hammer beer tastes like cheap apple cider.

Do not go here.

The food was so delicious that we ordered food to go as well (why some food is pictured in boxes). Highly recommend for a great place in the Seaport.

We had apple cranberry sangrias and the fruit was fresh and the drink overall was delicious. The Hopsters brews were tasty.
