Stopped in here the Monday following the EBF. Had heard good things, and I really wasn't disappointed. Just had a couple beers, so I didn't get to try the food, but it looked good! The place itself is kind of cramped and convoluted, but the bar was spacious and the overall atmosphere wasn't bad. Service was great. Bartender was reall chatty and knew a fair share about beer. Speaking of which, they had around 24 taps on and a sizeable bottle list that I never even really got to, as I was so impressed on the taps. Mostly local/NE micros, but then a whole bunch of rather obscure PNW beers. Many I had never even heard of! Well, unfortunately I only had time for two beers, so I went with a Brooklyn Saison and DFH Snowblower. I'll definitely be back next time in Beantown/Slummerville.

Would go more, but their beers are always $1-$3 more expensive than they should be. excellent food.

Redbones has a great beer selection. They have a variety of sizes 10.5 oz-33oz. Their menu has detailed descriptions of the beers with prices listed for each serving size. Their prices are great and the staff knows how to serve beer properly. The food is great but it isn't authentic barbecue its like Tex-Mex compared to Mexican food. It is delicious but it just not the same. You can't go wrong with this place.

Truly one of the most over-rated places ever. Let's be sure to split this into two distinct reviews. Their beer list is nice and if you are ONLY looking for a quality beer and are standing out front. Fine, pop in and only order a beer. However, in a world of choices as a whole this place is nowhere near a great option. The BBQ claims to be authentic and isn't even close. Let's just say I asked if they had NC vinegar style sauce...... the waiter literally brought me cider vinegar. just cider vinegar. Go elsewhere for food & beer
