Distraction Brewing is essentially the communal living room for the entire neighborhood of Roslindale (and depending on when you go, you may feel out of place if you’re not in there with a stroller). While most Boston breweries are big enough to house a fleet of seaplanes, this tiny corner spot feels more like a pub. There’s no food beyond a few snacky things, and the smaller size means it only has about six or seven beers at any one time. But it has some very good ones, including the Belgrade Tripel, a pretty unique hybrid of a wit and a wheat beer.
