Lord Hobo is easily passed by because there is no signage orlights to mark the spot. You enter through 2 doors on the corner and pass through a heavy curtain like a theater. Then before your eyes is a magical altar of beer and food nirvana. Lord Hobo has an impressive draft list with a focus on Belgians. The bottle list has a good selsction too with an extra heavy focus on Belgians. The food menus is limited in choices but so far all of the plates I have had are top notch. Gravy chips with demi-glace gravy has been my fave dish so far. Servers are very knowledgable about beers and helpful in reccomending one. Music and vibe are young and hipster but not pretentious. Great bar I hope this plcae sticks around and does well. My only gripe is the prices of some of the Belgian beers seemed a little too steep for my blood. Draft prices seem fair. Check out the Lord Hobo and he will serve you well.

Stopped here after a Bostonian said I absolutely had to hit this place up if I was in Boston. Late morning beers after Extreme Beer Fest, hands down the best hangover remedy I've yet to try.

Atmosphere: This place is very inviting. It has a very mellow pub-style environment. Great tunes continuously playing (Definitely my kind of place) All the beers are listed in a Beer Menu that seems to be updated fairly often.

Service: The waiter we had was very knowledgeable about beer styles and provided us with great service all afternoon. We came from Canada and wanted to sample as many beers as possible so he served us smaller glasses (witch they don't normally do).

Selection: This bar offers a very great selection of American brews with a few great Belgian and Canadian beers. The selection on Tap was phenomenal. They tapped 4 or 5 beers in the few hours I was there. Best part was when the waiter came up to me and said we just tapped Grey Monday. Damn!

Food and value: I had Pork Belly and it was by far the best I've ever had. It just fell apart and was so tender. As for the beer, the prices were very average. This is definitely a great place to visit if you're in Boston and looking to grab something to eat, have a few beers and enjoy some good music.
