Checked this spot out before EBF for a couple beers, then went back the next day for Sunday brunch & beers.
The spot is just a short walk from the Kendall Square/MIT stop on the T, and you'll pass by Cambridge Brewing Co. on your way so you might as well stop there too.
First I'll start with the food, the prices were decent and the food was excellent, I got the Arepas con Huevos which was superb and my friend got the Breakfast Burger which he thought was really good as well.
There was a Shorts event the first day we went, 15 different Shorts beers I think we tried 4 of them, all in pints and all only $6.50! Amazing deals and they were very tasty brews.
Next day was kind of a left over day, still most of the Shorts beers, Hill Farmstead Edward, a handfull of Evil Twin Brews, DFH 75 Minute and a couple Bruery beers.
On the bottle list they had Cantillon Rose de Gambrinus which is fantastic but everything on the menu was of a similar (albeit less rare) caliber.
Overall this is my new favorite place to stop every time I'm in the Boston area.

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.
