A sweet spot in the heart of Cambridge. I came to Boston on a work trip and sought out Lamplighter - a great space and fun vibe. I was surprised by how spacious the place was!

Lamplighter is a fantastic beer destination in the Boston area. The location is great, right on Broadway in Cambridge, the bar scene is really fantastic, lots of their great beers on tap; they also have a very good coffee bar, from what I hear but haven't had their coffee. They always have a great selection of IPAs and other beers that they produce, and a special shout out to their half liter wild ales which are all really good. Their 100% Brett IPA for example is really tasty, highly recomend. Love Lamplighter!

Too many half-assed one-time beers. The Belgian beers they try to make taste terrible. Stick to what you know.

Fun vibe almost cafe vibe.
Have worked remote for the tap house before.
Would avoid at night as it gets packed very quickly.

Busy place, have a fairly large bar and a nice retail space for can and swag purchasing.

We grabbed a seat at the bar on a busy Saturday, still had a bit of the AM coffee shop crowd with their laptops, but they didn't bother me any. Lots of tables in two levels.

Bar tender was attentive and grabbed us beers quickly. We had some special EBF flights that were being offered that weekend and then grabbed one each of their other two flight offerings to share.

All the beers were good quality, exceptional IPA/DIPA and great raspberry wild ale.

Free bar snacks were great too! A nice touch. They had a food vendor in but we didn't get anything from them.

Grabbed cans to go on the way out. A pleasant experience all around.

Stopped here after trying to get in at Nightshift but they had a line out the door to which my friend and I said “F - that” since we weren’t about to stand out in the cold just to tick a few Nightshift beers. A quick google search brought up Lamplighter and we made our way. We got there and the place was pretty full but no line and we could get in right away. We managed to get a couple seats at the back bar where we were quickly greeted and served. The beers were pretty solid. After being there a little while the crowd died down a bit and it was more enjoyable for me after that. It’s a good spot though, I’d go back.

I like what Lamplighter is trying to do by being a cafe during the day, but it does have the drawback of making the bar full of people on laptops. Generally, I like their beers quite a lot and they have a good range. Werewolves is a nice porter free of any added flavorings, they have several good hoppy beers, and I also liked their Sound & Vision Cranberry Sour. Really nice to have this place right in Cambridge, although it tends to be pretty crowded at most times.
