The draft selection is great. You never know what will be on tap. 2 weeks ago I had Troegs Mad Elf. Variety is excellent. Light, dark, IPA and even light beers. The price range for the taps is average. Some are a little pricey but pretty nothing to bark at (sorry, I had to). They also give you the right glassware with your style of beer. Well, at least for me so far and I've been there about 4-5 times the past month.
The bottle selection is pretty extensive. Most of them are Belgians and corked bottles. Chimay, Ommegang, Duvel, Westmalle, St. Bernardus, AleSmith, and many others. Some are pricey but not too bad.
The atmosphere is great. The first floor is laid back but still has TVs and surrounding tables for games and groups of people. There are also booths on the one side of the bar. The 3rd floor has large tables for big groups, plenty of seating at the bar and many TVs to watch the Sox beat the Yanks. This seems to be where most people go as it gets quite busy. It makes for a great time. Most people are very friendly and want to have some great craft beer and a good conversation.
The service has been great. Most bartenders have either had the beer you order or know something about it and/or the style.
It should be noted, both floors have the same tap selection without the bartender/wait staff having to go downstairs/upstairs.
The food is delicious. Their flat breads, mac-n-cheese, and burgers are awesome.
I would recommend this place to anyone looking for a great meal with delicious craft beer.

40 drafts and 1 cask(it was Hoponious Union when I was there). There is 3 floors and I think I prefer the 3rd floor to the first floor. Nice views and TVs on the third floor.
Service was pretty good. My waitress seemed knowledgeable about beer and even talked sours a bit. But I ordered sweet potato fries with my sandwich and was given regular fries instead.
The draft selection is pretty large and varied and had a few interesting selections like Founders Mango Magnifico and Ithaca 15. Bottle selection was big as well, a lot of the big Belgian brewers were represented there.
If I lived in the area I would come here all the time. Combining it with The Tap makes for a good combo. Its only a couple blocks from the commuter rail so it was easy to get back into Boston. The Barking Dog gets 2 paws up...sorry.

They recently updated their menu with new food items. But the food is not the reason to go. They have an 40 craft brew on tap. It is located in an old building known as the vault. They actually have three floors. The first floor has a bar area and a few tables. The second floor has only tables for lunch and dinner. The real gem is the third floor that has another bar and even more tables to eat at. You need to take the elevator to go up to the third floor but it is always less crowded and usually has room at the bar. The food is just OK but reasonably priced with a good selection to choose from. I had the Buffalo Chicken Macaroni and cheese the last time I went and it was actually quite good. The service has is always good and fast especially at the upstairs bar. Pricing is about what you would expect for pub food and the cost of a craft draft is in line with other places I have been to in the area if not slightly cheaper.
