Wow, the draft and beer selection here is superb. Over 100 beers on tap. And the beer menu shows that at least 3 times that many are available in a bottle. The menu is organized well, and it shows that some time and effort was put into the selection and grouping of the menu.

The atmosphere here was nice, but it didn't seem like a place you'd want to be if it got really crowded. If you can get a seat at the bar, you should be able to enjoy yourself.

The bartender (Mike) that served us was excellent. Some of the best service that I saw during my recent trip to Boston. My wife and I tried three beers apiece, (all beers I'd had in bottles but not on tap) and they tasted fresh. Unlike others that have reviewed before me, all of the beers we ordered were available.

I would (and plan to) recommend this place to any beer friends traveling to Boston. A fellow BA or two directed us here, and I'm grateful for it. The beer selection alone is enough to make a North Carolinian beer drinker consider moving to Massachusetts.

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.
