Good enough beer bar, I imagine it can get pretty crowded at times, but we went in during the day when it was quite quiet. The beer selection was reasonable and considering Iíd only been in the US for just over a week there was plenty I hadnít had. The foodís good enough and the prices are fair.

Good selection but nothing too crazy. Food is pretty good. They have a Wheel O Beer for people who donít know what they want to drink.

One of my favorite places in Boston. The cafe in Cambridge is very nice as well and much larger. The owner, Max, is swell - knows about beer! ***wheel oí beer***

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.
