Very small place with probably more seats at the long bar than tables. Also, most of the tables are in the back corner, which sucks. I was told that they donít serve liquor, but never verified this because I didnít care personally. This does make it less desireable for bringing friends who are not into beer. Otherwise, the selection is very good. The atmosphere fits in with the typical Boston young hipster crowd. Most people in the bar have probably read Bukowski. The service was fine and the food was typical bar fare. Cool place to hang out and relax with a good beer.

Cool music, very good selection, and the right lighting. I had heard rumors of brusque service, but my encounter with two bartenders was pleasant. The barflies were nice too, initiating conversation.

It took me forever to get to this place, especially the way Bostonís map explains it. The staff can be a bit rough if youre not a regular, but they tend to ease up a bit. Average pub food but it is good. I guess if you know what you want this is an excellant place, but be cautious when you try to be friendly to the bar staff, i dont think they take it well.

Definitely one of my favorite spots, ever. I chose this spot to have my first legal brew on my 21st birthday. The selection is all I could reasonably ask for, but pretty expensive (considering you can get many of the bottles they serve at any decent beer shop nearby for less than half the price). There are many, many bottles however... I have only had minimal experience with the food, but itís certainly adequate... pretty standard bar food. The proper glassware thing is no problem... this place rules Boston.

Apparently you canít hit Boston without going here, and itís quite the little dive bar hanging over a highway. Ambiance is great, fitting to where it is and what it is. The selection of beers is excellent, Iíve not seen anything like it before. I spun the famed "Wheel of Indecision" and sadly got a Lone Star Ale, which sucked. Had a hot dog and white trash cheese dip - hot dog was fine, the dip was great. Kind of expensive food, but apparently they have a $1.69 burger 12-8 on weekdays.

This is a good place, I often come here for lunch, although the food and drink can sometime be expensive. They have an excellent selection of brews, plus the matching glassware. This is probably one of the number one places to get a great brew in the city- just be careful of all the tourist types when there is a Red Sox game.

Smaller place. Long dark wood bar on left as you walk in. Some tables on right and in back. Little run down. Bartender was ok. 13 taps when I was there. Murphyís Irish stout, Ipswich ale, Brooklyn brown, Sierra Nevada pale ale, Hoegarden, Cambridge brewing scotch ale. DFH60, Great Divide hercules, Harpoon ipa, Stella Artios, Pabst, Sam Adams lager and Woodchuck cider. I didnít look at the bottle list. Would be convenient if you were staying in the Copley area. Little on the pricy side. Think it was 5.25 for my glass. Didnít have any food. Cask wasnít on, they only use it during winter months. Good place to visit. One of Bostonís older beer bars. Near MBTAís Hynes Convention Center/ICA Station stop. Any "B" "C" or "D" train will get you there.

Wow this place is small, but man does it have character. Dead Authors Club is some type of Mug Club where you pick your favorite dead author and get his name on a your own mug that you can fill for cheap. Very eclectic, didnt try the food, but the selection was decent as far as beer. Good amount of crappy pale lagers you may not find elsewhere, some decent taps (Harpoon Scotch). Most of the beer is quite expensive though.
