4.13/5  rDev +1.5%
vibe: 2.5 | quality: 4.5 | service: 4 | selection: 4.5 | food: 4 | $$

Hit this place a couple of times during a recent week long stay in Cambridge, mostly for beers, the only food I had was there pub nachos, which were pretty good, a very large plate, most of the fixin's.
Atmosphere is kind of stuff/upscale, lots of pale wood paneling, and the worst drinking music ever - new age 80's type light jazz stuff from satellite radio, all but for about 30 mins of one visit, when they'll finally switched to some blues.
Quality, of the beers, was excellent. They had a large range of beers, some experimental styles, classics, seasonals,etc...and pretty much everything I tried was somewhere between good and great.
Service was good, I sat at the bar every time. Got a free beer from the manager once, but also got cut off once by the bartender b/c he'd felt I drank enough strong beers in one sitting (4 in about 3 hrs), even though I was walking back to my hotel a few blocks away and was not drunk or even visably loose AFAIK, just quietly sitting at the corner of the bar by myself taking notes. Oh well, the tab was running high anyways.
Selection was great, for what doesn't appear to be a very large brewing operation, they had over 10 beers on tap, very nice, with some really creative, and successful experiments, like a dark saison and pale 'summer' barleywine.
Overall the prices were reasonable and the beer was good. If only they dropped the muzak and loosed up the collar some, it would be a pretty inviting beergarden...actually, they had a pretty nice outdoor seating area (not sure what, if any music was out there), but being a west coaster, I wouldn't have sat out in that humidity if the beers were free!
