This is like the underdog beer bar that is doing it right IMO.

They garner that real bar vibe, why? Because they are a real bar. Dark wood, full liquor license and a good looking food menu that I won't rate now until I have hit it up a few times.

Beer selection is very well chosen from light to dark, hoppy to malty, strong to moderate sized brews. A good portion of the beers are $5 a pint ... A shaker pint but a pint none the less. All of which is becoming a quick rarity in the Boston area. Atwood's is soon to become a mainstay in my rotation of places to hit.

My first impression is of the large all wood bar. It takes up two thirds of the place and it wraps around to where the hard liquor is kept. There's even mirrors like in the Wild West movies. There are five two-top tables near the window and perhaps twice that many in the back. The furthest wall from the street features perhaps the smallest stage known to entertainment--a drum set takes up 75% of the space.

Now for the beers, there are 25-30 of them on tap with another 75? in bottles. I found five on tap which I've never had (just shy of 3,000 rated). This is a pretty good ratio in my book. The service was quite good, there when I needed but not overly obtrusive.

I did not try the food, but from what I witnessed, everyone was enjoying their typical bar-grub fare.

This a bit between a dive bar and a sophisticated beer bar--a great combination in my book.
