When I was in Boston, this was on my list of spots that I would like to check out. So, when my friend that I was staying with, said to me on the second night in town : "hey, I was thinking we could grab a couple drinks at this place called the Publick House in Brookline, whaddya say?"; I was happy. Not too surprisingly no outdoor seating was immediately available on a warm summer night, so our party of 3 went inside to a table. The tap selection was quite nice, with Two Gypsies and Sculpin among others on tap. A good bottle selection with many Belgians represented. We had a fairly helpful waitstaff, who did a pretty good job of keeping up with the Saturday rush. Food was pretty good, but should have been better for the prices. But, for the great beer and having a fun time with your crew, this spot does the trick.

The best craft beer bar in Boston. Convienently in my neighborhood.

Might sound bias, but I'm glad I live in Brookline.

This is by far the best bar I've ever had the pleasure of frequenting. They always have an awesome selection and the waiters/bartenders are very knowledgeable. On my last visit (July 2014), I had Jolly Pumpkin Weizen Bam Biere, Cantillon Classic Gueuze, and Lost Abbey Red Poppy. The staff comped our appetizer and a beer because they wanted to help us try some of their rarer (and more expensive) offerings. This place is a must for any beer lover's Boston trip. Nearby bars also worth checking out are The Abbey and The Washington Square Tavern.
