Lulu's is a real find. Best beerlist I've yet seen. I had Fiddlehead IPA, Wicked Weed Lt. Dank & Medusa Laser Cat. THEY had Funky Buddha, Trillium, Founders, Evil Twin, Foundation, Maine... pretty much the cream of east coast beers and a few choice offerings from Cali & the midwest. And a very friendly staff as well. I'm sold!

Definitely worth checking out if you are nearby and maybe even worth a drive if you are in downtown Boston. A solid list of beer on tap, including everything from Almanac sours, to Trillium IPAs, to Sunday morning stout and Backwoods Bastard. Fairly loud and packed but a decent enough atmosphere.

Saturday morning at 11:30 first weekend in December and this place is hopping. There are no empty tables; there's a line at the door and no seats at the bar. Everyone here seems to be enjoying brunch but with a full complement of drinks.

The beer list is close to 50 beers on tap. All of them interest and many of them hard to find.

The ambiance comes from the large room, raw ceiling and brick walls. The service is is busily efficient. Most of the drinkers are getting mimosas and Bloody Marys, but it just might be the time of day.

The food looks like typical Boston brunch fare--easy to make and easily eaten and enjoyed.
