I have been to Alewife several times and each time I wonder why I keep going back. I think they have a decent selection of drafts and bottles. The problem each time I have been there is the service. On a weekday afternoon while sitting at the bar you should not have to wait 15 minutes to be waited on. There are plenty of other great places in the city to frequent. The food is ok but overpriced and a very limited menu. Each time I go is a disappoint which sucks when they have pretty good beers on tap.

I've wanted to visit Alewife for awhile and finally got the chance. We specifically stopped by to sample a few beers they had on tap based on their website. When we arrived we were told the beers were no longer available and that approximately 5 taps were dry. We were also told that there were beers in the cooler that could be put on the taps but that they were waiting for the weekend to start tapping them. Very disappointing.

Good beer and food (and cocktails). Interesting building--old bank--which explains why it doesn't give me the warm and fuzzies. Loud, too, but I like the low light. The location can't help them, but I love me some Bmore and don't scare easily. I wish I was more compelled because it's around the corner from the light rail. Still, I recommend.

Great food and equally matched draft list. Oh and LOTS of bottles. But then hey, who goes to a bar and drinks bottles when the tap selection is on point?
