Atmosphere: This place is very inviting. I sat outside so I didn't really get a look at the inside. That being said, there was still a great atmosphere on the patio.

Service: The waiter that I had was very knowledgeable and had great recommendations. He provided us with good service the entire time.

Selection: This bar offers a great selection of Local brews and American craft brews. They only have a dozen beers on taps but have over 25 to choose from in bottles. Most of the stuff was american but they did have a few Belgian gems.

Food and value: I didn't have anything to eat but as far as beer goes, they were fairly priced. This is definitely a good place to visit if you're in Boston. Oh and I love the washroom.

Went in there on my last night living in Boston with a group of people, so the concept of this place really worked. We sat on an 8 person hightop in the middle of the main bar floor, and despite our group size and the fact that people were coming and going at different times, the waitress was on top of all the orders, and ready to ask if we needed another drink just as the last one was finishing up.

You can get entrees here, but the main draw is building your own charcuterie plate. We went with this option so we would have different things for people to pick on throughout our time there. They had a great selection of cured meats and pates, and a good selection of cheese. Everything was delicious.

Now, to the beer. I missed the Heady Topper, but the selection was still solid. I believe they do a fair amount of rotating taps, but when I was there, I felt the bottle list was stronger than the tap list. Neither list is particularly long, but both were solid, and offered nice variety.

Even if you didn't know it before, you can tell immediately upon entering that this place is new. From the modern feel, to the energetic staff and clientele, there was just a nice vibe to the place.

Overall, worth coming back on visits and definitely someplace to try if you live and/or work near the area. Or if you don't.
