Not the longest beer list in town, but maybe the best, most carefully chosen. Didnít get to try the food this time around, but I will definitely be returning to do that.

I love this place, with about 20 regular taps (all spectacular, without fail), at least one rotating cask offering, a nice atmosphere, and spectacular yet rather affordable food, I donít see how you could go wrong.

This place is long and narrow. I canít imagine what itís like on a Saturday night! We sat in a small table along the wall. The server was polite, fast and attentive. Decent menu, rather long for the size of the place. Great tap selections from Imperial Stouts to IPAís. Didnít notice a lot of Belgian stuff, but I didnít really look at anything other than the tap list, so I canít be sure. Ordered an Anderson Valley 21 Anniv IPA. Nice, full pour. My friend ordered a Grittyís Stout and got it in an Imperial Pint, nice touch. Definitely worth stopping by. Heard their brunch and bloodyís are the best in the area from my friends.

Nice beer bar in the Boston area and definitely worth a stop when you are in the area. Much nicer and newer than other beer bars with an impressive selection of american craft and imported offerings on tap and in the bottle. Reminded us of the Oldsmar Tap House in Tampa, FL, another highly rated beer bar. Draft offerings included German smokebeer, Victory, Allagash, Unibroue, Mayflower, Avery, DFH (120 minute on tap?!?), La Rulles, Affligem, North Coast and many others. Bottle selection was also impressive. Did not eat on this trip, but the food looked good.

This place probably wasnít quite as good as I thought it was going to be, well it didnít live up to the hype I built up in my head. However I still thought it was definitely worth the visit. Quite early afternoon when I went in, just a couple of punters in there, the beer list wasnít extensive, but they had some top quality brews on there, although it wasnít so perfect from my point of view as the list seemed more geared towards European imports, which being a European out to try some US beers wasnít quite what I was hoping for. A bit pricey for me to have too many beers in there, bit of a shame that they donít sell the beers in smaller measurements, it limited the amount of beers I was able to try. Still worth checking out though.

Very cool beer bar. This is my kind of place. Selection is definitely about quality over quantity. The food is good enough that Iíd go there to eat even without the beer selection, which I wouldnít say of many beer places at all. The waitstaff and clientele are tattoed hipsters that actually seem to be into good beer. They can be very cool and friendly, unless youíre trying to order a Bud Light. I give another strong vote for Deep Ellum over Sunset.

Nice pub atmosphere inside - when I walked in and saw the indie-rock chick bartenders, and heard Joy Division on the stereo, it felt like home - well-selected taps, with a mix of imports and regionals (donít come looking for rare stuff from far-off states, but youíll find nothing but quality offerings) - the bottle list was well-selected, and well-priced (18 bucks for a 750 of Speedway Stout, at a bar!) - great people working, great vibe inside - what more could you ask for - yes, youíll find a more impressive selection at Sunset Grille down the block, but that place is so damn crowded, and busy, and obnoxious - trust me, youíd rather come down here and relax - you might not squeeze any new ratings in, but youíll have a nice time. (slightly personal note - itís right next door to a couple of decent vegetarian restaurants - not good, just decent.)

Clark is right. Max, the owner and bartender is a really nice dude who knows good beer. Willblake, Bstill and I went in there and loved the selection and food. It is only a few blocks from Sunset Grille, so it is definitely worth going to both- and Id actually come back to Deep Ellum before Sunset. Good location, very clean and new, long bar and ample seating for getting some food. 20 regular taps, 2 nitros for stouts, and 1 cask. Not a bad beer among the entire lineup. Everything on tap is something that I would have drank. A good portion of the taps are locals like haverhill, cisco, berkshire, and a few others. Food was very well made, and not expensive at all. Bottle selection was really good too, but we were too busy trying a bunch of beers on tap. Awesome place- recommended to anyone travelling in Boston.

The best all-around bar in Boston, I think. Been going here regularly since day one. The food, having gone slightly downhill over the years, is still awesome and the beerlist, while only occasionally having a true rarity, is still amongst the best in Boston. The prices are better than Row 34 and the food is better than Lord Hobo. The patio, generally awesome, hard-working waitstaff and reasonably priced bottles are a big plus. As well, they have a killer cocktail list and some good, brett-laced wines by the glass.
