These kind of brew pubs seem a bit pedestrian to me...not the kind of place I would picture a bunch of local regulars hanging out.
The food was actually quite good, I had the buffalo wings and a lobster salad that was fantastic.
Quite a selection of beers on tap if you just want to try their stuff. Tasted several of the regular lineup and wasn't really impressed, but they had a few different styles to appeal to most everyone, from a light ale to a imperial stout. There seasonal stuff seemed to have a bit more character, liked the imperial stout and the cask-conditioned Back Bay IPA.
One of the 2 bartenders that ended up serving me was very friendly, and knew how to pull a cask conditioned ale.

This is my happy place. Proximity to the Garden and the subway is definitely a plus, but it's got a lot more going for it than that. No matter what your beer preference is it's got something for you. This is a great place to take your hophead buddies, but it's also a place to take your uncultured friends who drink yellow fizzy piss water and enlighten them with good entry level beers. Some of the best beer in Boston (and therefore America) is served here. If you're lucky enough to be here when they're serving the Chocolate Strawberry Stout, get it and it might change your life.
