Pros: Great draft selection. Decent food. Easy parking.
Cons: So loud my ears hurt. Not many bottles (but really, who cares with the draft list).

Stopped in at about 6 on a Thursday and the crowd that was to be had not arrived. Great location, no need to hunt for parking. Neighborhood bar meets gastropub. The small bottle list was not an issue as what was on draft was more than enough, including eight to ten brews from Short's due to the snow attenuated Extreme Beer Fest. Good service: attentive without being clingy, knowledgeable. Fair offering of smaller plates (more room for beer) with slightly better than average preparation. Gnocchi with beef hearts had a nice flavor, though a bit heavy and cooked slightly too long. Truffle fries could have been a bit hotter, but tasty nonetheless. Prices seemed in line with other similar places in town. Deafening loudness by the time I left around 8.

I have been to some of the other beer bars on Boston and, while impressed with the tap lists, have generally had poor and very slow service. This place tops them all in terms of tap list and had outstanding service to boot. More of a neighborhood bar than a place to be seen. All members of our party loved it and we will be going back.

Don't waste time with the other pretenders (bars) around Boston. This is the best one I've been to. Great list of many beers from world class breweries. This is a place to experience beer, not to be seen at "a craft beer scene". Avoid the other "posers" and get to Lord Hobo ASAP.
