4.14/5  rDev +1.7%
vibe: 4 | quality: 4 | service: 4 | selection: 4.5 | $$$

Fun Fact: I don't recall there being any mead.

Fun Fact #2: Beers in Boston are a lot more expensive than I'm used to.

Fun Fact #3: They had a giant selection that was posted on a descriptive, obsessively updated list. The beers were all pricey but that's really my only complaint. There were 2-3 beers for every mood along with a healthy selection of rare and one-off taps.

Fun Fact #4: The service was nice and the atmosphere was nice like an expensive loft apartment-high ceilings, big open widows, well-dressed professionals on their way to and from nice-paying jobs.

4.34/5  rDev +6.6%
vibe: 4 | quality: 4.5 | service: 4 | selection: 4.75 | food: 4 | $$

Atmosphere: This place is very inviting. It has an open concept with a second level overlooking the bar. There was great music playing while I was there . All the beers are listed on a black board on the side wall of the bar and are also included in the menu.

Service: The waitress we had was knowledgeable and provided us with good service all afternoon

Selection: This bar offers a very great selection of American brews of tap with several great Belgian beer available in bottles. The tap selection included 100+ beers including some one-offs and seasonal's. Solid line-up.

Food and value: The Sandwich I had was very good and the prices were very reasonable. As for the beer, the prices were very average. This is definitely a good place to visit if you're in Boston and looking to grab something to eat and have a few good beers.

Stopped here walking around Boston pre-Extreme Beerfest. Overall, had an enjoyable afternoon trying a variety of beer.

The place had a large number of taps, including imported items (mainly Belgians as I recall). The offerings were of good quality, not all flagships, necessarily. That said, there wasn't as much new to me as I might expect. Although I am partially to blame for having tried a fair amount of different beer, another reason is that they seemed to have more major producers than smaller (even local) brewers. So they get quality at cost of selection, in my mind.

Another downer on selection is no "taster pours"; note, you can get a taste of anything for free, as should be, but if you wanted to widen your breadth of pours at a place with a huge selection, there wasn't an option without $$ and BAC coming into play.

We aren't hard to please, the service wasn't right on top of it all, but it was far from slow. We got more attention as the lunch crowd left and we started talking with the bartender about options.

I spent a lot if time in this review almost contradicting my ratings. We did thoroughly enjoy our trip to this bar. I mainly tried to point out how it didn't exceed (vs meet) expectations.
