Super small bar on the side of a parking garage but it really works for them. Laid back bar that was packed at lunch as people ate, we didnít. Good selection of beers that are mostly from the Boston area or other New England breweries. Service was very good. I could definitely see myself being a regular here if I lived up there.

Another tiny little boston pub whose charm sets it apart. Very laid back and comfy...nothing fancy here! Service is friendly and swift...I can comment on food as I didnít eat or see the menu but the draft and bottle selection embraces local/regional and extends beyond with some nice craft stuff. My audacity of hops bomber was pricey but I was happy to find it. Id go back given the chance.

This is a real beer bar. Unpretentious, no effort to be upscale. Great burgers. Decent set of taps, mostly local and regional microbrews. Huge bottle selection. I was there twice during a recent visit. Both times had really good service. Downside was that the music was too loud - had to shout to be heard.

Stopped here after Xmas shopping for a few. Bartender was very nice and knew her stuff. Selection was above average...lots on tap but alot that most beer geeks have had before. Two or three that were new/ obscure. Bar itself is pretty funky, long and narrow, a couple tvís, unfortunately this place is stuck in no-mans land around the corner from the convention center. Good place if your in the city, much better than the rest of the spots on Boylston.

This place is tiny. I mean TINY. It looks like a little shack attached to a parking garage. Thank god for GPS or I probably would have driven right by it. Their food has a reputation of being good. I tried their Mac & Cheese, and there was a hair in it. So I donít know about that one. Their selection is pretty dark good though for the amount of taps that they have. Service was beer friendly.

Looks very small from the street. And itís not big. 14 taps. 1 cask. Some bottles. Friendly service. Not cheap. Prices excl. taxes. Loud music. Half full on Sunday evening. Draft list on bar.

A small, dark bar along the length of the left hand side with tables on the right and rear. Not a very comfortable spot and music can be very loud. It sometimes takes a while for the lone bartender to notice you which can become aggravating as Iím not a "regular". Beer selection is OK with a concentration on NE micros. Usually something local will also be available on cask. Food is not the strong point here - cheap hot dogs probably attract a college crowd that is looking to recoup some of the money spent on the overpriced beer. My choice in the are is the Other Side a little bit down the road for better ambiance, selection, service and overall value.

Great selection of beers in a small tucked away almost literally "hole in the wall" bar. Full of hipsters is my chief complaint but most of this area of Boston is like that. Nice selection of local craft beer.

Neat little place, in a way. Just mid-way over the bridge from this neat old fire station. Canít miss it due to its bright orange red color. Walked in and bar was full but shortly thereafter I got a seat. Great selection of beers available on draft and in bottles including locals, regionals, macros, both craft and mass brewed. Bartender was friendly, helpful, and knowledgeable. Patrons, on the other hand, while not rude, certainly were some of the least friendly Iíve ever run into: no chit chat, no eye contact, real stand offish. Wouldíve given a better ambiance and overall grade but for that.

a lot of people standing even though there are plenty of seats in the small bar close to the downtown hotels. the beer selection is fine, but not a lot of exciting beers. a bit too loud for my taste.
