Whenever I go out with friends I am on a quest to find bars that are not typical or boorish, have a great atmosphere and crowd, have low key tv's & music, (because I have very unique taste as far as what to watch or listen to, plus it takes away from conversation) a cool staff, and of course, a great craft beer selection. Lord Hobo nearly fits this ideal description to a "T." It's a very classy place, yet the crowd is diverse and the bartenders make you feel welcome - happily getting into a long conversation about beer, to small talk, to occasionally comping a drink. I would imagine the selection is one of the best in Boston - focusing on local choices too. We actually said hello to the brew master of Pretty Things when I was there... he was just hanging out. The food was also excellent, I had Filet Mignon tips that melted in my mouth. The presentation and sides were also good and creative. The bill at the end of the day was on the high side, but considering the quality of what I consumed, it was well worth it. Very highly recommended!

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.
