Aeronaut is tucked away in a neat nook of Cambridge. It has a warehouse feel and shared space with a Venezuelan kitchen and chocolatier. It is a very large space with a modest bar but many many tables.....they must take reservations as many tables had reserved I guess either get there early or make reservations. The quality of the beer was above average and the service was kind and attentive. There was plenty of beers to choose only pet peeve is that they have set flight menu....I prefer the freedom to create my own.

I may be a bit biased because I went on a night when they had a band playing, but this place is great! Cool atmosphere with great local artists' work around the walls. Beer was good. Service was pretty good considering the place was busy. My one complaint is that it had an odd room to the side that just seemed kind of random and out of place, but maybe on a regular night it would've made more sense. Great place overall and I will go back.

There's only about 8 beers on draft, but they are decent. Service was top notch. Very cool vibe though, I love what they did with the place. Come to sample a flight or enjoy 1-3 beers... then see what else is out there.

I get what they're trying to accomplish here - a community hub sort of place with lots of activities. Both times I visited there was some type of event happening, sometimes multiple things at once. A bit chaotic unless you are directly involved with the particular event. Nintendo on the wall and video games in another section.

Hipster/industrial factory layout. Servers are pleasant enough, which is kind of a big plus in the sour-puss Camberville area.

Where this place really falls apart though is in the most important area - the beer. I've tried 6 of their beers either on site or from package stores, and they range from acceptable/mediocre to downright bad.

So, bottom line - if there was some type of event going on there that you're participating in, it's a cool place. But just don't go for a quiet beer.

Open concept hipster vibe. Picnic, family style tables. Video games and music. Tends to be anywhere from 4-8 drafts at any given time. Part of a building that also has a couple small craft businesses.

Visited: 14 May 2016

Vibe: Picnic benches with board games available for checkout and SuperNintendo games projected on the wall. Quite dark, but not too loud, which was nice. I think this place could definitely use more lighting.

Quality: The beer here is great, and I think the beer average is unfairly penalized by some low-scoring outliers.

Service: Bartender served quickly, but otherwise was just alright.

Selection: About 8 different, freshly brewed beers on tap.

I really love this place. As a neighbor of the brewery here in Somervillle, I can't begin to tell you how great this brewery is for our community. Aeronaut is becoming a landmark in the Somerville neighborhood and a place I like to pop in to a few times a month just to see whats going on. Their space is incredible and they are really turning out some noteworthy brews. The eye of sauvin and year with dr. nandu really are treats. Hopeing to see this place really take off!
