This is my must stop when I go to Boston because of their huge beer selection on tap. I mostly like having their flight selection (choice of 4 glasses of 4 oz) to try the most of their beers possible. Everytime I go, I must have their Subatomic Wings. They're so good and a bit spicy.
For beer collectioners, this place is great because it has many beer collectibles all over their walls. What I do reproach is the knowledge of the staff, there seems to be no beer connoisseurs in the restaurant (at least from the last 4 different visits I had). They seem to be confused and often mix up the flight selection you order, especially if you're a party of 4 or more. Also, the restaurant having a huge variety of taps, I am not sure how often their tap lines are cleaned, because some of the beers don't have the same taste or freshness.
I think, the beer selection rotates a lot. A very nice place to try out different beers.

Overall my trips here have been great. Huge selection, always adding new beers and the food is pretty good too.

Hard finding a time when it isn't busy, but worth the wait in my opinion.

With so many to choose from it hard to leave here without trying a few new things.

Best beer bar in Boston. Selection both on tap and bottles is amazing. Food has improved and is excellent. Nachos are the best I've ever had. Can't beat the value. Great place for any size party, especially large groups, who can get a table at the last minute. Friendly and knowledgeable staff. It's been a Boston institution for a quarter of a decade, and rightly so. You won't be disappointed.
