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.

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.
