I had been wanting to visit this place for a while. I saw a clip about their nachos on Phantom Gourmet, and I was sold. The parking is a nightmare, but once you get past that it's all good. Plenty of seating throughout the establishment, and the atmosphere was great. We were there on a Saturday afternoon, and the place was probably about 80% full. Plenty of sports on the televisions hung throughout, and a ton of beer paraphernalia throughout covering the walls of the dining areas, hallways, bathrooms, and even the street frontage. Old taps, serving trays, beer signs, coasters, and just about everything else you can imagine. The draught list was at least 40+, and the bottle list took pages to list...easily over 150+. There are cask offerings, they do taster flights, and they put together promotional packages on the beers based on country of origin, style, etc. The food was great, and it comes out fast, so you can make this a quick trip for a meal, or, with all of the beer choices, you can hang out all day. Prices were reasonable, and I am already looking forward to a return trip. A must visit if you are in the greater Boston metro for any length of time.

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.
