There is always something happening at John Harvard’s Cambridge.

Experience history made fresh… in a beautiful new space!

Come visit the new John Harvard’s Brewery & Ale House, in our beautifully updated home at 33 Dunster Street in historic Harvard Square. An excursion below street level unfolds into a newly-renovated space, with decor and furnishings that blend John Harvard’s historic character with modern casual elements, for a welcoming dining experience.

A comfortable setting and good comfort offerings highlight the menus–from the beer to the cuisine, everything is made fresh from scratch incorporating seasonal, local and organic ingredients.
