The Avenue Bar & Grille

Welcome to The Avenue

Featuring mouth watering burgers and 30 constantly rotating craft beer taps, The Avenue is a great neighborhood spot for everyone.

We have @harpoonbrewery/ @clownshoesbeer in the house tonight debuting the @nhlbruins “Don’t Poke The Bear” black and golden ale, now available at The Avenue!

We are in love with @shortsbrewing Go Juice IPA! On tap now at The Avenue. 🍺

Go Juice is a Milkshake IPA with Mundos Ethiopian Gelana Abaya Coffee, marshmallow fluff, milk sugar, and vanilla. Cloudy and tan in color, there are aromas of bright citrus mingling with coffee and vanilla. Full in body, Go Juice leads with flavors of citrus and fruity coffee. With a slight sweetness in the mouthfeel and vanilla in the finish, it creates a uniquely delicious combination of hoppy and sweet.

Last night was a blast! Thanks to all who came out to say hi to @funboyboston. 🎉🎉 #AveOGs

Tonight we have a very special throwback for you, Jay K is back behind the bar for 1 night only!!! Come hang out with us and party like it’s 2016.

It’s #NationalVodkaDay and to celebrate, we are welcoming in a new member of the Avenue fam, Wheatley Vodka! Come on down and ask for Wheatley, you won’t be disappointed.

“Distilled by Master Distiller Harlen Wheatley and his dedicated team at Buffalo Trace. Made in small batches using a one of a kind micro-still and unique recipe of wheat and other grains. Distilled 10 times, triple filtered, and bottled at 82 proof, this artisanal vodka has a clean, crisp, and fresh taste. Pure and crisp on the nose. The fresh and clean taste finishes with hint of soft vanilla. This is the way vodka should taste....”

Tis the season! 🎃 we just tapped @shipyardbrewing pumpkin, come on in, grab a cinnamon/sugar rim and embrace your inner pumpkin loving basic bitch. 🍁🍂
