3I second the recommendation for Boston Beer Works.
For the general Boston question, there are tons of good restaurants and shopping. What type of cuisine interests you? Budget? Atmosphere? What type of shopping interests you?

6There's not exactly a lot of fine Italian or Seafood dining around Fenway. For good fish try Atlantic Fish or Jasper White's Summer Shack (very informal) - both are near the Prudential Center, which is a reasonable walk to Fenway. The better Italian places tend to be in the North End or South End. Davio's, high end northern Italian, is on Arlington Street - too far to walk, but near the Green Line T staton that goes to Fenway. All three restaurants are near shopping areas - the Prudential complex has a mall, and Newbury Street (a block away) has everything from real HIGH end shopping to used book stores.

7The request was for additional suggestions in Boston proper.
The North End is a great suggestion. For Sicilian seafood, try The Daily Catch on Hanover Street.
You may also enjoy wandering around Quincy Market/Faneuil hall and hitting various bars and restaurants there. It's also a great place to shop for gifts. Many stores as well as interesting vendor stalls. (It's located right next to the North End so you can do them both).

9I was responding to the inquiry about a "good place to eat around Venerable Fenway." While Boston Beer Works is fun, I wouldn't characterize its menu as unique - thus the attempt to identify other places within walking (or easy T) distance to Fenway.
As for the North End on the non-game nights, if OP does not have budget limitations he should consider Mare - superb seafood dishes (maybe the best in the City) with an Italian influence. Appearance-wise it is not your typical North End restaurant - it has all glass walls and a modern decor. The food is exceptional - consistently ranked one of the top restuarants in the area.
