Late Saturday afternoon; still sort of quiet, my first visit. Long bar with many taps and glasses with TV's mounted on the wall behind the bar (Olympic Equestrian??).
Service was prompt and friendly, with a staff of 3 or 4 behind the long bar, and not yet crowded. The beer selection was very good. Not the best on the city, but up there in the top few that I've tried. There were maybe 20 taps, and lots of bottles as well.
I started with a Schneider Aventinus on tap, which was fabulous. It was served in a matching logo glass, and was as I said, just amazing. I next went to a bottle of Saison Dupont, equally delicious. I wasn't happy about the to me oversized highball glass the bartender brought me, but on my request, he gave me a Duvel tulip, so all was good.
At $9 for the Aventinus and $12 for the Saison Dupont, the prices here aren't for the faint of heart, but I would definitely come again for the selection. Highly recommended when in the area of the theater district. Light years better than that close by brew pub.

I came one late afternoon on Memorial Day. While the place is quite large, there were very few patrons (maybe six!) here. In fact, the staff out numbered us. I was struck by the streamers across the ceiling with placards advertising a Paulaner Oktoberfest. The bar features lots of dark, elaborately carved wood. It's like stepping back to an era no longer available.

The smells from the kitchen are attractive. First, I experienced Bratwurst, and then grilled marinated steak. Although I didn't try any food, the aroma "therapy" was superb.

The service was fine, but the server at the bar did not really understand the selections. Still, with 44 beers on tap, many of true nuggets, it's hard to go wrong. I did not note too many really hard-to-find beers, but the selection offered many high-quality beers. In most cities, this would be a top-notch beer bar, but not Boston.

We had lunch here while touring Boston. The atmosphere is German beer bar with lots of flags and beer decor. Quality was below my rating of average. Service was friendly and helpful. Beer selection was very good and that's about the best thing I can say about this place. I had a pastrami sandwich and it was horrible. The meat was dry and while the roll was tasty there wasn't anything on it. One tiny slice of pickle came with. Others in our party had the chicken BLT which was good and a sausage sampler plate which looked really dry and bland but they said it was good. Every table did get a bucket of corn bread which somehow seemed out of place for a German eatery. I can't eat corn bread and no one else ate it at our table so it all went to waste. Maybe a mixed bucket of bread like rye or sour dough would be a better choice. Value was reasonable.
