Close to MIT, also to a business area. It's walkable from Kenmore MBTA station. The CBC website provides directions from that station, but Central is just as close (both on the Red Line). Walk toward the sign that says "Cambridge Brewing Company." The sad person standing at the podium watching you walk by works for a restaurant that doesn't serve good beer (or mabye it does, I don't know).

Indoor and outdoor seating is available. There is also a large bar inside, both facing the wall and another "island" bar opposite for more seating. A TV is available for viewing whatever.

There are a good amount of beers on tap from CBC, about 5-7, which is a good amount for a brewpub. The prices were reasonable to pricey, but they offer multiple glass sizes for different prices. The food selection was decent, well above standard pub food, but a little pricey. I guess you get what you pay for. Definitely nothing was outrageous price wise. The service was fine, and it didn't take too long to get our food or a new beer.

One of the must-go places in Boston/Cambridge. There are so many great beer places in the area but this one is close to top of the list. (1,160 characters)

Really cool place with a nice outdoor patio and a really laid back vibe where everyone was welcomed and taken care of by the attentive staff. They had a nice selection of beers, the waiter offered solid recommendations and the food came out quick and hot. Beers were good, my burger was very good and there was no rush to leave or pressure. It was a perfect hangover experience and our waiter was one of the best I've ever had, at any restaurant. Quality place close to Lord Hobo, go to both if you're up in Cambridge, MA, you won't be disappointed. (549 characters)
