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.

I visited on a Monday afternoon so it was nice and relaxed in the bar. Some interesting stuff on tap but nothing too crazy when I was here however the Enlightenment Hoffman was the pick of the bunch. Very friendly lady working the bar who was chatty and clearly enjoyed good beer. I skipped a meal here but my neighbours sitting at the bar had some good looking plates of food delivered to them. Thereís a patio with more seating out back however the weather turned chilly so nobody was game to utilise the space. This was well worth a nice stroll from central Boston.

A stylish neighbourhood bar with a relaxed atmosphere (at least when itís not too busy - the first time I went there it was so crowed and noisy it was almost impossible to have a conversation). There are around 22 taps with lots of good beers to choose from.

We came for brunch on a Saturday around 2 pm and ended up eating a good comfort meal and appreciating a well-chosen draught list including many of the latest top local picks like pale ales from Trillium. Beers tried were in pristine condition and while it seems to be a very popular place, we did not have to wait very long for a table and were comfortable and well serviced as soon as we got one. Iíd definitely come back, but would worry about the crowd.

Hipster bar. Small but solid tap selection including one from Trillium I didnít see elsewhere. Food was solid/artisanal.

I donít get it. Why would anyone want to stand in line for an hour with stroller-pushing families just to get into a noisy cramped space and wait for someone whoís clearly cooler than you to bring you beer that you could have at Sunset Grill? Because youíre a hipster. Thatís why.

Stopped in for brunch on a Sunday afternoon. The bartenders and staff for friendly and jovial even with the place at full capacity. The breakfest sandwich I ordered was tasty and my buddy enjoy his burger. The draft list was pretty solid and had a few rarties. With Sunset Grill right down the road, it maybe hard for me to stop back here but it is in the relm of possiablity.

Stopped here after Sunset. Completely different vibe. Smallish inside - Great place to hang out, much more limited beer selection, but very well though out. Knowledgeable staff, correct glassware. Did not eat here though.

Visited last weekend while I was in the area. Right away I knew this is the kind of bar thatís constantly packed and cramped like a tin box of sardines: there was a line to the front door because of the limited seats available; I could smell everyoneís body odor inches from my face. Just like finding the perfect parking spot, I leapt to the nearest stool as soon as one of the full customers had left the bar. Tap list was extensive and moderately priced. I will have to say, however, that the food here was reasonably sized, but not necessarily as big as I thought it shouldíve been. Itís probably no surprise, as is often the case, that I simply didnít enjoy it all that much. I ordered an "everything" burger, which had cost me nearly $13. I could have destroyed the Happy Menu with that kind of money. It was one burger on a large bun and fries. Yawn. The bartenders here were the real stars; obviously great service and enjoyable taps means Iíll likely be back, Iíll just skip the food.
