I have been here so many times, it is about time I review it! In fact, the last time - this past Sunday - I was there twice in one day!

Basically, this is THE place to be in Boston if you're looking for beer. They've got it all, with a rotating list every so often, there is always something new and exciting. This past weekend, I went for the 1-keg only Kentucky Breakfast Stout.

Aside from the beer, the food is also delicious. The choices are impressive. I always pick from the vegetarian options, of which there are several. The food menu is pages and pages (quite mimicking the beer menu!), offering quite the selection. On Sunday I was there for both breakfast AND dinner. Don't miss the onion rings - those are superb!

The atmosphere is sort of loud, especially if there's a local ball team playing! But you're not there for the quiet, peaceful nature. This is a great place for big groups to go hang out - I've often been there with a group of 10 or more people!

The service is very good. The people who work there tend to know their stuff. Often, there's a free beer in it for people who show up wearing their BeerAdvocate shirts! There's been a few mistakes of bringing the wrong beer while I've been there but this is often due to the fact that it IS so loud and the waitstaff couldn't actually hear you! The value is also good, you get a lot for your money, and being that it is so good (I mean, I am STILL thinking about those onion rings!) it is worth the price.

Went here maybe 2 months ago & was impressed by the huge draft list. However, literally the first 5 beers I ordered from it they had "just run out of." Food was pretty solid though.
