Fort Point’s Row 34 prides itself on its oyster and craft beer game. And while we’d like to say we hold our own when it comes to distinguishing between an Ichabod Flat and a Peter’s Point (Oyster, that is. And we don’t, for the record.), we really geek out when talking brews with Row’s beer director, Suzy Hays. Suzy keeps Row’s tap list fresh with rotating draft lines that are on point with the neighborhood restaurant’s lunch, dinner and raw bar menus, curated weekly. On any given day you’ll find a beer from a brewery in our portfolio on the menu, from Kent Falls to Idle Hands, Finback to Proclamation.

What’s on tap today won’t necessarily be on Row’s menu tomorrow or next week. So, here’s a sampling of what you *might* find – all approachable beers that pair well with Row’s briny bivalves…and award-winning clam chowder…and hot fried chicken…
- Social Capital, Honest Weight Artisan Beer: An American Pale Ale dry-hopped with Mosaic, Citra and Motueka. Intense citrus and melon aromatics with a dry finish. Sessionable, hoppy and smooth. Hudson, MA | 4.7% ABV
- Six Seam, Idle Hands Craft Ales: A New England Double IPA with a subtle spice character that complements the focus on Mosaic hops. A smooth, pillowy mouthfeel with notes of peach, apricot, mango and pineapple. Malden, MA | 8.2% ABV
- Broze, Proclamation Ale Company: An Oatmeal Milk Stout with semi-sweet chocolate flavors and a touch of roast. Warwick, RI | 5.5% ABV
- Spry, Kent Falls Brewing Co.: A Sour Ale brewed with local rhubarb and foraged staghorn sumac with exuberant strawberry and lemon character. A collaboration with Baltic Bay Wild Ales in St. Petersburg, Russia. Kent, CT | 5.5% ABV
Row has one of the most interesting building stories we’ve heard in a long time. According to Eater Boston, Row 34 is quite literally built on oysters as their construction crew quickly learned when digging out the foundation for the restaurant. They unearthed crushed oyster shells, a filler used for construction back in the old days. And, we’d be remiss if we didn’t mention that Row’s co-owner, Skip Bennett, also owns Island Creek Oysters in Duxbury, further confirming that Row’s oysters – like its beer – are FRESH.
