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.

Went here maybe 2 months ago & was impressed by the huge draft list. However, literally the first 5 beers I ordered from it they had "just run out of." Food was pretty solid though.
