Was in the neighborhood and made it a point to seek this place out after rave reviews from friends.
A: I must have went at an awkward time. There was a mix of students on laptops drinking coffee (cafe by day as well) and a good amount of others letting the suds flow. For this reason it was slightly off putting as I felt like I had to be quieter with people working.
S: One bartender working. A standard human being. He got us a beer without problems, which isn't saying to much. Not overly friendly or welcoming that you'd ask questions about selections.
Sel: This is what draws people to the Map Room. A good amount of tapped drafts with an insane selection of bottled beers. The beer on draft are great examples with some local rarities. Good luck picking a bottled beer as there are many.
F: N/A - Pretzels on the table were good though.

Opens at 6am for coffee and pastries. Starts serving beer at 11am. This place is absolutely lovely during the day with open windows during nice days. I, personally, avoid the weekends and nights. Too many amatuers. World class beer list and a very nice staff.
