This is Brian Poe's Gastropub a couple of blocks down from City Hall Plaza on Cambridge Street. I've been there for lunch more than a few times. About 30 taps that rotate very frequently. I enjoy getting beers from Breweries I know but "new beers" for me. Nice L shaped bar with kitchen view, in front of the taps and wall for the whiskeys. The facade has two garage doors that open to the street in good weather, a nice feature. The "mayors corner" has a mural of past and present Mayors which is a nice touch since City Hall is nearby.

The food is outstanding and priced fairly. All fresh ingredients, imaginative recipes and many game dishes are available. This has to be the best "gastropub" I've visited in Boston. If you only go for the beers, you'll be happy. If you eat, you'll be coming back again.

Great spot in Boston, always a solid rotating selection. Some near and far beers, always well curated and the food is phenomenal!

Great spot...if I lived in Boston, I could see my self at this place often. Good list a beers...had a few good stouts and some tips to eat. Visited on Election Day/Night, so there was a good crowd and a good buzz to the place. The service was above average...knowlegeble about the beer and possible food pairings. Overall, a good place and the next time I am in Boston, I will be back.
