The first stop on the BA Saint Patrick's Day Beer Crawl 2007.

Located in the Kendall Square area of Cambridge, MA. Which is not that close to the Kendall Red Line stop as you may think. But, very nicely located all the same.

Great old factory feel to the decor, with large wooden bar area and restaurant seating. Murals depicting pop icons on the wall. Plenty of natural lighting from large windows.

Service was quick. Food was delicious. Basic gourmet takes on standard pub food. Try the Southwestern Turkey Burger. Yum.

Their beer outstanding. A definite stop on any Boston area brewpub tour.

Decided to try this place out after Lord Hobo was closed (didn't realize they don't open till 4PM on the weekdays). Nice place tucked away well away from the street. Tons of outdoor seating which was nice on a summer's day. Selection was fairly sparse, maybe a dozen choices with one cask selection. Beer was good, wait staff was attentive and friendly. Really can't complain.

Every thing you'd want in a brewery next door to MIT. Must see. Beantown stout and all their fragrant pale ales FLY!
Try their extensive menu and enjoy the brainy university crowd. A bit of heaven. I'll always return here. Spacious bar.

Went here for my birthday over the weekend. The space is in this mixed space building area next too a BBQ restaurant, offices, and the Friendly Toast. The space itself is pretty small relatively. Some tables in the front, a bar area, and tables in the back. Although my party and me were able to be seated quickly on a Saturday night, the small space made the entire restaurant and bar area quite loud.

The bar menu seemed to have over a dozen CBC beers offered with a medium-sized bar menu. I had the 4 sampler flight that offered the Great Pumpkin Ale, Soleil Couchant, Commissioner Gordon, and Brett Sematary. I also had the BBQ bacon cheeseburger, which had an excellent BBQ sauce flavored with their pale ale. Our server was prompt, polite, and knowledgeable.

Overall, I enjoyed this space despite its tight quarters.
