Wood-fired pizzas could be available as early as next week at Brewer's Fork, the newest addition to Charlestown. The space is tucked away into its own cozy corner, just a stone's throw away from the Bunker Hill Monument. Marked by a bright blue sign, Brewer's Fork has an alluring aroma of smoked meats hanging heavy in the air already, as if this space had been operational all along. The bar, which sprawls across one side of the restaurant, stopping just short of the open kitchen, is the main focus of the dining room. The available beer is listed on exposed brick tiles that fit into a brick wall. Various beer glasses sit on shelves behind the bar, just next to the taps.
The open kitchen, nestled into the back of the space but certainly the main attraction, is visible from anywhere in the restaurant. The large wood-burning oven is modern and industrial with a brass exterior. It is the focus of the menu and will be kept busy with pizzas, meatballs, carrots, and more.
Two hightop tables with industrial glass chandeliers hanging from above divide the bar area from the rest of the seating — rustic, wooden tables. The chairs that surround the tables are reminiscent of school days, wooden and contoured, their yellow hue giving a sunny pop of color to the room and contrasting nicely with the brick. On either side of the room, a banquette with a wine cork back to it offers a fun touch. The ceiling is exposed to give a warehouse, industrial-type feel while windows in the front let light in. Towards the back and on the opposite side of the kitchen, a glass garage door allows more light to pour in.
On the walls, wooden framed chalkboards will presumably list specials. To the very front of the restaurant and right before the windows, a pair of high-top tables allows diners and beer-drinkers alike to take in the sights of Charlestown.
