Located near Harvard in a very college area. Parking is hard to come by as there is mostly street parking, as most places in the greater Boston vacinity. Not sure of any public transportation nearby, but a Google Map search can easily help with that.
The place is very narrow, with a long bar and plenty of half booth, half chair seating along the wall. There are two HD TVs above the bar. There is also outdoor seating toward the back.
The long list of drafts was great. Very hop-centric when I visited (not as many Belgian's that weren't hoppy or malt-heavy beers). The bottle list is extensive. I believe it's 20 taps, 100 bottles. There is one cask as well. Prices were reasonable. With three beers and a meal it wasn't much over $30, which is decent I think.
The service was a little slow, with the waitress sitting down to talk with her buddies and taking forever to get back to our table. We were sitting slightly out of sight but the busboy had no problem removing empty glasses from the table. I felt like giving him the tip after we asked him to get our waitress.
All in all, besides the service (which could have just been the one person) it was a very good place to go. Recommmended.
