Located on One Kendall Square, which can be difficult to locate for out of towners like me. Basically get off the T and walk straight and you will hit it.

If possible, sit outside. Outside had much more charm and is just cooler overall. Inside it looked a bit cramped and was very generic looking with light wood tables/chairs.

Menu was ok, not overly large. Had a meatball pizza which was surprisingly good.

They do have samplers, $2 a sample...we ordered 4 samples along with the beer and cheese sampler appetizer (having no idea they actually give you 3 1/2 samplers with it...this didn't say on the menu, so I wish our waitress made a mention). Regardless, the food was decent enough.

On to the beer, they had 8 to 10 on tap. Standards included a pale ale, brown, golden and a stout. Seasonals included a bitter, imperial stout, summer barleywine and a few others (I think there may have been a lambic too, but it wasn't on their beer menu).

Others around us had beer tubes, which probably had 8 or so beers in them...pretty cool if you have a group that can agree on 1 style...

The barleywine was good. Perhaps a bit strong on the alcohol flavor end, but good. I really enjoyed the imperial stout...quite good and drinkable, but it packs a heck of a punch.

They do sell shirts and pint glasses for those who collect.

A good beer place. Like I mentioned, try to sit outside, the atmosphere is much nicer. Fresh tasting assortment of beers available.

Not so bad, I like their bombers and labels, wish the beer was better. Big Man IPA is a total malt bomb but the double, Audacity of Hops is better and the tripel, Tripel Threat is a bit Wah, Wah. Just bought a 6-pack of their new hoppy pilsner and it's marginal.
